OCEANSIDE, California - It was a wild day at the SoCal Sports Complex in the 2018 Girls Development Academy Playoffs. The U16/17 age group ended group play on Thursday.
Group F was full of drama. Crossfire entered the day as the favorites to move on and only needed a draw, but Legends FC had other plans. The Southern California group scored in the first half and added three more in the second half for a 4-1 lead in the final minute of the game, which would’ve sent Legends into the Quarterfinals. However, Crossfire went from favorites to spoilers and scored a late goal, which ended up sending Solar through to the next round. The three teams ended up tied on points, but Solar had the advantage in goal differential after a 3-0 win on Thursday.
Below are some of the individual standouts from the games on Thursday.
