Justin DeMarco and Dillon Clark each scored two goals with assist by Omar Reidy, Dominic Sarmiento, and Benji Abe. Team Brazil’s offensive was resisted with intense defensive provided by Konstantino Selk Anagnos and Teyo Snyder-Aguigui.

Everett & Jones BBQ U12 ASC Nightmare 5, RSC Pumas 1
Rockridge and Team Nightmare played the game even the first half until William Ardourel took the ball in a break away, dribbled around defenders and scored to take a 1-0 lead. Alameda pressed the defense again with Evan Salsbury placing a chip shot just missing the goal by inches. The second half scoring saw William Ardourel place a cross pass to Alex English, who found the net for a 2-0 lead. Later in the game, Samet Ardourel Tezdogan showed great ball control through defenders to score his first goal of the season for a 3-0 lead. Ardourel and English scored their second goals to make it 5-0 Nightmare. The Pumas came back late in the game with a cross shot just out of reach from a diving Noah Han, ending the game at 5-1.

Alameda Islanders U13G 2, Heritage FC Explosion 0
Alameda Islanders U13G 1, Union City Premier Outlaws 0
The Islander U13 girls had a strong second weekend in the Norcal Premier Soccer League with wins on Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday, Lily Shiber put the Islanders ahead of the Heritage Explosion in the first half with a volley into the goal from a cross, and Clara Maxim provided the insurance goal in the second half with a run down the right wing and a well-placed shot into the right corner. On Sunday the Islanders played a spirited Union City team, and despite 80 percent possession were stymied until the 45th minute by an energetic Outlaw defense. Lauren Jones broke the deadlock for the Islanders with a curving corner shot which squeezed in between the goalie and the goalpost to ripple the back of the net. Islander goalie Claire Attias kept a clean sheet for both games, snuffing out all threats with impeccable timing and fearless dives. The Islanders continue to play attractive soccer and are undefeated in eight games of tournament and league play.

Alameda Islanders 3, Hayward Leon 0
The Islanders followed up their season-opening 3-0 win over the Hayward Leon on September 18, on goals by Erynn Naccarelli, Katherine Hanover and Maddy Lewis, with another impressive showing. Kaitlin Yee scored from 15 yards out in the 44th minute, and Emma Canalin added an insurance goal four minutes later. Jordan Cenidoza recorded five saves in her first start in goal, supported by an inpenetrable defense led by Emily Woo, Sasita Knauer, Claire Drewery and Taylor Crooker.

Montclair Clippers 2, Alameda Islanders 1
The Islanders broke a hard-fought, evenly-contested scoreless tie on September 19 with a brilliant goal in the 54th minute by Emma Canalin, who juked three defenders before ripping a shot into the back corner of the net from the penalty mark area. But the Clippers fought back, tying the score in the 65th minute, and then winning it in the final seconds. Inside midfielders Annie Kelly and Kaitlin Yee excelled throughout, and Carrie Simmons delivered some beautiful crosses from her outside mid position.
