McKenna Clifford, a 12-year-old Winters soccer player is this week’s Athlete of the Week. In the last month, Clifford has been very busy on the soccer field. Whether she was playing for the Davis Alliance 12U competitive soccer club out of Woodland or playing for a USA team at the Youth World Cup in Gothenburg Sweden, Clifford left her mark.
At the Gothia Youth World Cup, Clifford scored six goals in the tournament, helping her team to a 3-0 start before falling to another USA team out of the Bay Area. Clifford scored two goals in one game and pulled the hat trick in another, scoring three goals to help her team advance to the championship round.
