Saturday, February 6th will go down as an unlucky day for Pacer United when both our U12 04 Boys Gold and U13 03 Girls Gold teams lost out in the finals of State Cup.
The U12 boys went into their last game of a really brilliant 2015/16 season with only one lost game all year, but came up short on the big day to a good Bay Area Barcelona team. The boys, who had come back from the jaws of defeat a few times during the course of the year, couldn’t find a way to get the tying goal and take the game into overtime as they narrowly lost out by a score of two goals to one.
The U13 girls also came up short by one goal in their last game of the season, finishing three to two in favor of CV Magic. Twice the girls fell behind and twice the girls answered back only to concede a third heart breaker with 5 minutes to go in the game. The girls threw everything at the Magic in a frantic last five minutes, but just like the boys, couldn’t find the tying goal to take the game into OT.
Congratulations to both our teams on making the NorCal State Cup finals — ending your seasons as the #2 team in NorCal is a really great achievement!
Great job to everyone. Go Placer!
