FC Fremont Storm - 2, San Ramon Illusion - 1

1. Hannah Welker - Goal
2. Marisa Padilla - Goal
3. Anna Martin - Assist
4. Janelle Herrera - Outstanding Defense
5. Donna Wingfield - 9 Goalkeeper Saves

Fremont Storm defender Hannah Welker's unassisted goal with 11 minutes to go was the game-winner in a tough match against the San Ramon Illusion. After skillfully weaving past San Ramon defenders, Hannah unleashed a high-powered perimeter shot that arched high and to the left of the San Ramon goalkeeper's outstretched arms, closing the scoring for the day.

The game was not an easy one for either side. Early in the first half, Fremont spotted San Ramon to a 1-goal lead, with the Illusion scoring in only the 4th minute of play. But Storm midfielder Marisa Padilla responded 7 minutes later, alertly punching in a cross pass feed from Anna Martin on the right to send the teams into a halftime tie. The game remained a tense defensive battle until Fremont broke out on top in the second half.

Fremont's defense was once again key to this win. Janelle Herrera was outstanding in the backfield. Storm Goalkeeper Donna Wingfield rang up 9 saves, and held off a number of San Ramon second half attacks. The victory moved Fremont Storm into second place at the midway point of the season.
