Alameda High Ladies JV Soccer are the New Year’s Tournament champions. 

The Lady Hornets defeated hosts Dublin High, Irvington, and Granada to become the point leaders following the preliminary rounds. 

Advancing to the championship match played Saturday evening, the Lady Hornets faced Las Lomas High School of Walnut Creek. The match was tied 1 – 1 at the end of both regulation and overtime.  The Lady Hornets won the championship tiebreaker in kicks from the mark 4 to 3.

Hornet keeper Megan Martin blocked two of Las Lomas 5 shots whereas each of the Hornets’ kicks hit the net (taken by Skylar Herrera-Ross, Kelley Desmond, Sarah Beilman, and Amani Webber-Schultz – Alex Walls would have taken the fifth kick if necessary).

In congratulating the team, Alameda High Head Varsity coach Abu Pigot remarked, “This victory was very encouraging for our program and shows that we are heading in the right direction in building Alameda High School into a regional powerhouse in women’s soccer.”
