In Game 1 against the San Ramon Surf, FC Storm came out of training camp ready to play. Storm exhibited particularly sharp passing in the first half, and it paid off at 3' when Kristin Moyer scored to give them a 1-0. The defense was solid. Shelby Brown scored a second goal at 19', celebrating her birthday. In the second half, Kristin scored twice more to complete her hat trick, and took five shots on goal during the game. Megan Massone kept the pressure on with three shots on goal in the second half. Storm had 13 total shots on goal. Hannah Welker's goalkeeping was excellent, complemented by Shelby Brown in the second half.
In Game 2, FC Storm matched up against the Dublin Hurricaines, and got off to a slow start, giving up a goal 2 minutes into the game. At 8', however, Kristin Moyer stole the ball and scored to tie things up. At two minutes before the half, Shelby Brown, who took a total of five shots on goal in this game, followed up her own rebound after a booming shot, and FC Storm went into the half leading 2-1. In the second half, Anna Martin scored twice, first on a sharp pass from Marisa Padilla, and later on a beakaway feed from Megan Massone, leading FC Storm to a 4-2 win. Hannah Welker had 3 nice saves in the first half, and Shelby Brown made two key saves in the second half to preserve a 3-2 lead. Storm had 12 shots on goal.
The game 3 match-up had FC Storm facing ACC Maverick Stampede. The 1st half was scoreless, but Storm dominated in terms of field position, time of possession, and shots on goal, ending up with 16 total for the game, 10 of those in the first half. Sabrina Singh alone had four shots on goal. Two minutes into the second half, Storm finally capitalized when Amy Moore set up the first of two goals, first by feeding Hannah Welker to put Storm on the board, 1-0; later Amy's long kick to Roquel Martinez at 13' served as an insurance goal that put the game away, 2-0.
Game 4 was perhaps the toughest test of the weekend for Storm, against a fellow Division 1 league rival that they will face in the regular season -- DVSC Black 95. Storm kept the pressure on against a competitive team with a number of players capable of breaking away. Serena Singh and Marisa Padilla were notable on defense. At 10' into the first half, Anna Martin alertly scored on a rebound off a thunderous shot by Amy Moore, and it proved to be all that was required. Hannah Welker and Shelby Brown combined for five saves.
The FC Storm defense was excellent during this Jamboree, with three shutouts and only two goals allowed in three games. FC Storm goalkeeping was also outstanding. The team looks ready for the regular season.
