Placer United had an incredible weekend out in Davis at the Nor Cal Regional Championships. All five teams that qualified for the Regional Championships advanced to play on Sunday morning in the semi-finals. Four out of the five teams were victorious in their semi’s and moved on to play in the finals later that day.
With all Nor Cal Regional finals kicking off at the same time, the Davis complex was flooded with Placer United families as they cheered on their teams in the 100+ degree weather.
On Field 8, the Placer U11 Boys, who had earlier beat out a very good Barcelona Academy team in the semi’s, took on another strong team from the Bay area and sealed the first Championship of the day by winning 1-0 in a hard fought game.
Meanwhile over on Field 2, the Placer U11 Girls were in a massive battle with the Barcelona Academy girls who were out to avenge their boy’s loss. The game was a really great game as both teams went at each other despite the high temperatures and the girls were extremely unlucky to lose out 2-1.
Back at field 7 the Placer U14 Girls who had earlier come from behind to win their semi 2-1, didn’t waste any time in the final as they jumped out into the lead and never looked back as they picked up Championship trophy number 2 for Placer.
While the other teams were busy picking up their medals and cooling off in the shade. The Placer U12 Girls were involved in a PK shootout out on Field 4 against the trophy favorites, West Valley Premier. The girls nerves held strong in shootout as they won Placer’s 3rd Regional Championship of the day.
Congratulations to all five Placer United teams that qualified for Regionals.
What a great weekend for the club!
All 5 teams made the semi’s.
4 teams moved into the finals.
3 teams brought home the bacon.
