Hawks Standout in San Diego

on .

SAN DIEGO, California – Day two of the ECNL National Event at the San Diego Polo Club is over, and there were more performances worthy of recognition from the games TopDrawerSoccer watched.

Overall, the action on the second day was much more closely contested, with fewer players completely taking over matches. Still, there were players who stood out in the sunny (not to mention windy) conditions in San Diego, and one thing those players had in common was a tendency to persist in half chances and 50-50 balls.

Here are the players who stood out the most in the games TopDrawerSoccer took in on Saturday.

Alexxis Lipsey, Michigan Hawks U16: Lipsey showed various facets to her game against Colorado Storm. She had skill, and knew how to move with and without the ball. But when she couldn’t get clean looks on goal, she showed her tenacity to follow speculative opportunities and was rewarded with an admittedly scrappy goal, albeit the winning tally.

Paige Franks, Richmond United U15: A forward not afraid to shoot, Franks was unfortunate not to score a goal against De Anza Force when her chip was tipped over the ball in the first half. But she also displayed good link-up play with her teammates and had good touch.

Katrina Koomen, Michigan Hawks U17: The towering defender showcased a midfielder’s skillset on the afternoon, as she was not afraid to move upfield to hunt for the ball (and often won it) and displayed a quick turn from time to time. She’s also got a booming kick to play it upfield, something that paid off as the Hawks’ game against FC Stars of Massachusetts wore on.

Allison Winterfield, Michigan Hawks U17: Solid on defense in the middle of the field but very good in flipping a quick counterattack, Winterfield scored a terrific goal on the day and was unlucky not to have scored more once the Hawks’ attack began to click.

Emma Tokuyama, Michigan Hawks U17: Had her backheeled shot on goal gone in she would have had pulled off some real skill, but besides the audacious attempt Tokuyama played well to bring down balls over the top on diagonal runs and had a very quick turn to beat defenders.
