2021 Sacramento Sirens/Women's Football Thread

Post by SuperHornet »

This is going to be a LONG season for the Sirens. A last-minute glitch forced the Sirens to move their game from easy-to-reach Sacramento (CA)-Kennedy HS to way-out-in-the-middle-of-nowhere Wheatland (CA) Union HS. The Sirens suited something like 19 players, about 3/4 of which were playing their first game ever, AND they had to contend with the 2019 defending Women's Football Alliance Division 3 National Champion Nevada Storm. It showed. The Storm won 58-6, and it wasn't even that close.

The small roster forced the Sirens to play one-platoon football. (In other words, everyone except QB Jessica Khalil, a converted linebacker, played both ways.) The entire line consisted of rookies, and they were standing straight up at the snap, and you can imagine the holes that resulted against a championship-caliber squad. Officiating was decent, though there was ONE shot I thought MIGHT have been targeting, though it wasn't called, and it wasn't so blatant that one could didactically declare an officiating boner. The Sirens couldn't block for either the backs OR in pass pro, and Khalil took a LOT of abuse on the night. Two bright spots, though were WR Svetlana Stepanchuk, a holdover from the Sirens' glory era in the mid-2000s, and newcomer WR Brie Barry. Both Barry and Stepanchuk were pulling wobbly passes launched by a harried Khalil out of the air when they weren't picked or allowed to fall incomplete, and both were doing about as well as anybody in breaking tackles. Barry went 50+ yards on a jet sweep (or something similar to that) for the Sirens only score. The PAT went UNDER the crossbar. Surprisingly, the Sirens crossed up the Storm at that point with a surprise onside kick, but recovering it did no good as Khalil promptly threw a pick.

Both teams had issues with cramps, and both were using time outs early and often. (I don't think I've EVER seen the first quarter end with BOTH teams down to one time out for the half.)

Next outing: Sirens at Cali War (formerly the California War Angels) in Los Angeles.

In addition to running into a buzzsaw in a national-contending squad in Cali War, the D-III Sacramento Sirens ALSO had to deal with Cali War's big mid-week signing: Sami Grisafe, the first woman to throw for 10,000 yards and the first girl to start a California Interscholastic Federation game at quarterback. The results were predictable: Cali War won in a landslide.
