Official Press Release
USYS Far West Regional
The '95 ECNL team coached by Scott Halasz advanced to the 2011 Far West Region IV Semi-Finals. WPFC finished 2nd in bracket and were matched against the 2010 National Champions – MVLA Lightning for a quarter final match up. The game ended 0-0 in regulation and headed into one of the most exciting OT periods many can ever recall. Mariah Lee scored in the 2nd OT only for MVLA to equal the score a few minutes later. With about a minute left WPFC earned a PK and Lee stepped up and finished what many thought was the winning goal, however with the final kick of the game MVLA tied it up sending the game to PKs. In PKs WPFC came away with the win against the reigning National Champs earning them a birth in the Semi-Finals against So Cal Blues. The semi game went into the 2nd half 0-0, with WPFC having the better of the chances and possession. In the 2nd half a goal 10 minutes in forced the team to chase the game and with 10 minutes left Blues grabbed a second goal as WPFC was pressing for the equalizer. The game ended 3-0 to the Blues.
Congratulations to all the players on such a great achievement. Good luck at the ECNL National Championship in Denver on July 13-16th.
