Congratulations to the Placer United U12 Boys 04 Gold team as they now join the Placer United U13G 03 Gold team at the NorCal State Cup Finals on Februry 6th in Modesto.
Similar to our U13 Girls, the U12 Boys won all their games in opening rounds one and two and were feeling good going into the knock out rounds.
In the quarter final game, the boys were drawn against #1 ranked Santa Clara Sporting and came out on top with a 2-1 victory to advance into semi-final round with goals from Chase Tanon and Luc Summers.
In the final four round the boys were up against a highly talented Central Marin FC team who had just defeated the higher ranked San Jose Earthquakes team in their quarter final game to deservedly take their place in the top four.
The semi-final round was truly a great advertisement for the youth game as both sides played at a really good pace while producing some fine soccer. With the score 1-0 to Marin FC at the half, the boys in yellow showed some great team character as they came back to win 2-1, both goals coming from Luc Summers, and advanced to the NorCal State Cup Final.
The U12 Boys have kept an incredible 2015/16 season going as they now have played 45 games, won 39, tied 5 and lost one to the team they will now play in the State Cup Final, Bay Area Barcelona.
Great job guys, good luck in the final. Go Placer!
