SoCal FC will be going for a national championship on Sunday, as the local women's side beat Boston Breakers Reserves 3-0 in the WPSL semifinals on Saturday in Edmond, Oklahoma.
SoCal, in their first season as a team, downed the NWSL's Breakers reserves side via goals from Michelle Enyeart, and UCLA teammates Kodi Lavrusky and Darian Jenkins. Goalkeeper Sammy Jo Prudhomme also played a role on the other end to preserve the lead on the day.
Here's footage of Enyeart's goal, in the 11th minute:
The team won't have much time to savor their win or prepare for the next game, as they'll play for the WPSL season championship on Sunday afternoon against the Chicago Red Stars Reserves, also in Oklahoma. Both teams enter the final game of the season undefeated, so it should be a pretty outstanding match.
So can SoCal make it a clean sweep over NWSL reserve teams on their way to the title? The game is at 11:30 am PT, but it appears there won't be a stream for the match. Regardless, best of luck to the Southern California side in representing a women's soccer hotbed and taking the national title!
