North, East to meet for North Cup Championship

It will be an all-city league battle for the North Cup Championship on Saturday afternoon after both North and East posted shutout wins in Wednesday's semifinal matches.

In the first match of the day, North scored three goals in under 10 minutes to start their match before routing Circle 6-0.

Nayeli Gallo was unstoppable for the Redskins, assisting on the first two goals before scoring three straight of her own to finish the match with a hat trick.

Then in the second match, East controlled possession against Mulvane for much of the match, leading to a Josie Goodpasture goal to give the Blue Aces a 1-0 lead in the 20th minute. Yossi Villagrana connected on a penalty kick to get it to 2-0, before taking the match 3-0.

Now North and East will face off in consecutive matches, first for the North Cup title on Saturday followed by their regular season matchup Tuesday night at East. Both teams enter Saturday ranked in the top four of Class 6A's Central/South Central Regional, with North carrying a 12-2 mark to East's 10-3 record.
