Coach Pete’s Placer United U11B 06 Black gave their moms a huge gift on Mother’s Day by winning the U11 League 1 Championship at the Davis Legacy Tournament.
The boys edged out a tough Santa Rosa team in their opening game to win 5-4 and followed up with wins of 9-0 versus Galaxy Blues and 3-0 versus SDA to advance to the final.
Their opponent in the final was a very strong Peninsula SC. Placer United led 1-0 at halftime in a very tight encounter as both teams created a ton of chances in an entertaining back and forth game. In the second half, Placer scored three late goals to secure the win to the delight of all the moms who gave up their champagne brunch plans to support the boys in their first big final of the year.
A special mention to Eric McGuire who also received a “Player of the Tournament” award.
Congratulations Coach Pete and 06B Black!
