2012 WEST CONFERENCE CHAMPIONS
Oakland, CA (July 22, 2012)- The Bay Area Ambassadors (Ambassadors) are the West Conference Champions after defeating the Sonoma County Sol (Sol). The Ambassadors made easy work of the Sol winning 4-1 and will participate in the National Premier Soccer League (NPSL) national playoffs this weekend in San Diego, CA
The Ambassadors have not lost at home all season, and they had great start to the game to ensure their first loss would not come in the championship game. In the third minute of the game, Jordan Keyes crushed a header in the goal off a corner from Javier Hill. Scoring first and early opened the door for the Ambassadors to sprint through. The Sol and Ambassadors traded possession until Stefan Clemens slipped a ball in behind the defense for Emrah Klimenta to finish giving the Ambassadors a 2-0 lead. Klimenta scored his second goal of the game with a shot combining placement and power off a pass from Dylan Murphy. The Sol struggled to find a rhythm in the first half with the Ambassadors leading 3-0.
The second half saw the Sol throw numbers forward to try to recover from the three-goal deficit. The Ambassadors calmly handled the pressure clearing crosses and not allowing any space in behind. The Sol had one breakthrough with a shot from outside the eighteen-yard box by Sean Callahan. His goal made the score 3-1. The Ambassadors created chance after chance but failed to produce the dagger to end the game until the 89th minute. Nick Cashmere used his impressive speed to track to down a punt from Derek Lesley and loop it over the Sol’s goalie for the fourth goal of the game. The Ambassadors won the championship 4-1.
“This game shows the hard work and time all the players have put in this season,” said Ambassadors coach Mohammed Mohammed. “As a coach, you’re proud when the players get the result they deserve, and this group more than deserved it.”
The Ambassadors will compete in the NPSL national playoffs next weekend in San Diego, CA. Look for updates on the Ambassadors’ website (www.fcbayarea.com) and Twitter (@baafc).
