Mikayla Reed did an excellent job playing outside back alongside Teresa Noyola who scored the team's goal of the day! The Storm's Forwards kept the attack going, putting pressure on Chico State most of the game. Though both of Chico State's goals were made by corner kicks, our strong defenders Bradlee DeShane, Vickie Ramirez, Mikayla Reed, Kerstin Cohen, and Mid-Defender standout Karissa Garcia were able to shut down most of Chico's offense and prevent them from scoring any other goals.
We also saw excellent performances by our goalkeepers Marlee Nicolos and Savanna Yendes.
The California Storm is known for producing strong athletes and inspirational women. Since its formation in 1995, they’ve seen their players’ skills and ambitions flourish. Past soccer players Julie Foudy, Brandy Chastain, Monica Gonzales, Aly Wagner, and Leslie Osbourne have all found themselves in prestigious soccer roles such as television analyst and announcer since leaving the field.
The California Storm seems to be the place where professional excellence is bred.
The team’s coach, Jerry Zanelli, is “Proud to see our players succeed and accomplish so much in the sport of soccer.”
