Three Placer United girls teams are in the hunt for the NPL Champions League title to be decided this weekend at the NPL Showcase in Davis.
The U15G Gold are currently tied for 2nd place and have a chance of winning the title after they knocked off first place Santa Clara Sporting.
The U16G Gold are sitting at the top of the standings after beating FC Elk Grove Navy. If the girls win, they will be the Norcal NPL Champions.
The U18G 97 Gold are tied for 3rd place with a game in hand. If they win this weekend, they are likely to bring home the title.
The winner of the Champions League will receive an automatic bid to play for the NPL National Championship in Westfield, Indiana July 9-13, 2015. The NPL Finals features the champions of all 19 NPLs across the United States in the U13 through U18 boys and girls age groups. Teams will play several group games before advancing to knock-out rounds to determine the NPL National Champion in every age group.
One of the most prestigious championships in the country, the NPL finals is the target destination for all NPL teams throughout the year-long, league-based competition each season.
Additionally, there will be a large number of college coaches at the event for recruiting purposes. This is a very exciting time for our program.
The Placer United U18 97 Gold boys team won the National Championship earlier this year!
Good luck ladies! Go Placer!
