“Mad Dog” does the damage for Eastside’s G04 Red U15 in opening round win: Cedarcrest High School’s Madelyn “Mad Dog” Davidson had a natural “hat trick”, scoring all of her team’s three goals as they handled the CDA Slammers from southern California 3-1 to open their play at the tournament. California’s Jordan Galvin opened the scoring in the eighth minute, and that sparked Davidson, who promptly tied it with her first tally seconds afterward, then she pounded out two more second-half goals for the trick to seal the win for Eastside. They play again today against Santa Clara Sporting Green from the Bay Area, a win likely sending EFC ahead to the playoffs later this week.

Santa Clara Sporting Green 3, Eastside FC G04 Red 15U 2: Davidson scored another goal for Eastside in this one, but the ladies from northern California got the last laugh, scoring the final goal in a back-and-forth battle on the pitch in Idaho yesterday that dropped EFC to 1-1 in pool play. They play the Washington Timbers from southwest Washington’s Clark County today. A win for Eastside will likely put them into the playoffs.

“Mad Dog” leads her age group in scoring moving into playoffs: Cedarcrest High School’s Madelyn “Mad Dog” Davidson has been getting it done for Eastside’s girls’ G04Red U15 team at the tournament. She scored another goal yesterday and will move into the playoffs with the scoring lead in the entire regional in her age group with four goals. Eastside fell in their final pool game yesterday to California’s Santa Clara Sporting Green 3-2 despite Davidson scoring a goal in the contest but punched the second seed out of their pool into the playoffs tomorrow, and they will meet the Las Vegas National League team from Nevada tomorrow in that knockout game. (this is an error…the final game in pool play was against Washington Timbers and ended with a 2-0 win)

“Mad Dog” aids in rally sending her team to semis: Cedarcrest High School’s Madelyn “Mad Dog” Davidson sparked a late Eastside FC rally, scoring the tying goal in the 57th minute, before teammate Catherine Lewiston put Eastside in the lead to stay 15 minutes later, as EFC’s girls’ G04 Red rallied from a 2-1 halftime deficit to sink the Las Vegas Soccer Academy’s National League squad from Nevada 3-2 in their knockout quarterfinal yesterday. The win sends Eastside into a semi today against the host Boise Thorns with the winner advancing to the finals tomorrow, either against Santa Clara Sporting Green from California, who Eastside fell to once already in pool play, or the Salt Lake-based Utah Celtic FC.

On the ladies’ side, the host Boise Thorns blanked Eastside’s G04 Red U15 girls’ team 1-0, sending Eastside home and the Thorns to the finals where they’ll meet Utah Celtic FC from Salt Lake City. Cedarcrest HS’s Madelyn “Mad Dog” Davidson did not score any goals, of course, in this one, but she finishes the tournament second in the age group in goals with five, so perhaps a little more attention’s going to be paid to her this fall when she suits up for the Red Wolves.
