The Prospector Thunder Under 12 girls soccer team from Cameron Park enjoyed its most successful tournament of the 2010 season with a first-place finish in the HalloweenFest Tournament Oct. 30-31 in Placerville.

The Thunder dominated the Sierra Gold Sapphires 4-0 on a rain-soaked morning in the first game of the tournament. Although playing well in the afternoon game against the Land Park Lightning, the Thunder had to rally from a 1-0 halftime deficit and score three times in the second half to win 3-1.

Prospector had a sluggish start Sunday morning but found energy in the second half to defeat the Sierra United Stampede 2-0 and earn a berth in the championship game. In a rematch of an early season game against the Sierra Fusion, the Thunder wanted to atone for a loss in that match and played hard in a very physical game on both sides of the field.

In the end, the Thunder outplayed the Fusion and came away with the championship and a 2-0 victory. In the four games the Thunder allowed only one goal, a penalty kick. Prospector’s strong defense was led by Rachel Caltabiano, Natalie Palmberg, Amanda Grigsby, Parker Olsen and Emily Dahla, supported by outstanding goalkeeping from Makenzie Perez and Kendyl Maher.

The leading offensive players throughout the games were Alexis Day, Sarah Pacheco and Ali Stansberry. The tempo of the game and Thunder’s control of the ball  throughout the championship weekend was a direct result of the hustle and effort of Thunder midfielders Avery Baker, Taylor Silva, Megan McFarlin, Danielle DeStefano and Jessica Prichard.
