Wieger volley from Caroline hits the post, then an Erica Frizzell blast from 30 yds rattles the crossbar. A Wieger goal
on a goalkeeper deflection is called back for an offside violation. On an assist from Rose, Kira sidesteps diving keeper
for first CAL goal. In the second half, Caroline one-touches cross from Mikki for 2-0. Wieger follows up a deflected shot
by Chioma, 3-0. Rose sends ground shot through defenders and past a sleeping keeper, 4-0. Dana outmaneuvers 4 defenders

into the game. After 15 minutes CAL starts to regain confidence. Jessica Gray unleashes two powerful shots from 30 yds
out, and a Natalie-to-Meghann cross and volley almost scores. Gray finally ties the game on a free kick from 25 yds.
|Team 1 defeats Colorado, 2-0
CO fails to capitalize on a couple early scoring opportunities. Thereafter, the CAL defense of Stephanie Lopez, Amanda,
Aubree and Vanessa is a nearly impenetrable wall and most of the rest of the game is played in the CO half of the field.
GK Andrea's sure hands smother any other shots CO manages for the rest of the game. CAL goes up 1-0 in the first minute
of the second half -- Lizzy gathers a loose ball and her shot from 25 yds is held up by the wind just enough to drop in
over the keeper's reach. Later, Rose is sent flying by a clip from a CO defender in the penalty area, and Dana calmly
converts the PK, 2-0.
|Team 2 ties British Columbia, 2-2

head of the goalkeeper for a goal in the first minute. BC adds another goal, and 6 mins into the game CAL is down 0-2.
CAL finally regroups and the rest of the game is played in BC's half. 5 mins into the 2nd half, the BC keeper can't hold
on to Natalie's shot and Najwa taps the loose ball into an open goal. Later, Elena subs into the game on a corner kick,
just in time to head Jessica Gray's perfect far-post corner kick in for the final goal.
