Placer’s U9G Elite won their Quarter Final game 5-0 versus Mustang Stars of the Gold 1 bracket, while the U10B Premier beat Livermore Fusion 3-0 in the Silver 1 bracket to clinch their places in the next round.
On to the final stages in Manteca for both teams…the U10B Premier came up against Newark Atlas and after a very close game, Newark scored in extra time to win 3-2 via the Golden Goal ruling. It was a tough loss for the boys since they had played well and can look back on a couple of wasted oppurtunities which passed by in regular time.
The U9G Elite had a semi-final game against Inter Rage and after dominating the first half, a final shot let Placer down so it was still 0-0 at halftime. In the second half, Inter scored early to put Placer on the back foot but goals from Camille Garcia and Grettel Sainz got the girls in front and we eventually held out to win 2-1 and set up a final with Grypons SC.
The final was Sunday and unfortunately the girls’ efforts of the previous day took its toll and the team could not replicate the same result, losing 4-0. However, both teams can be extremely proud of getting to the latter stages of the competition and we’re very proud of their hard work in the build up to the games.
