The Placer United U9 and U10 girls teams played in the second round and Quarter-Finals of the Norcal State Cup this past weekend.
The U10 Girls White had three wins in their second round bracket play and advanced to the Quarter-finals of the Bronze 2 Cup. They defeated Merced 2-0 to advance to the Semi-Finals on November 17th. With a win, the girls will advance to the Final on November 18th.
The U9 Girls Red had a great run in the Cup. They won their first two games and then lost to a very talented Santa Rosa squad. The girls then had a 2-1 defeat to MVLA in the Premier 1 Quarter-final and ended the State Cup run as one of the Top Ten teams in the state.
The U9 Girls White also had a great run in the second round. After a tough loss to Mustang in Game 1, the girls roared back with two wins to reach the Gold 1 Quarter-finals. In the Quarters, the girls were up-ended by Diablo FC.
The U10 Girls Red also had a very impressive run in the Cup. They won their first two games and then squared off against FC Milpitas and lost 4-3 in a game that went back and forth. The girls lost a tough game but still did enough to grab the #8 seed and played for the Norcal State Cup Championship. In the Quarter-finals, the girls squared off against the #1 seed West Valley. The girls came up on the short end but finished the Cup as the 8th best team in the state.
Congrats to all of our U9 and U10 girls on a great Norcal Cup season! Good luck to the U10 girls White!
