Congratulations to the Placer United U16 and U17 Boys for qualifying to play in the National Premier League Champions League Division. Over the last weekend, both boys teams had to travel and play really strong opposition in order to reach the NPL Elite Eight. The U16 Boys played the highly ranked San Jose Earthquakes 97 team and the U17 Boys had an even tougher game as they traveled to play the 9th best U17 team in the nation, Atletico Santa Rosa. The U16 Boys had stunning strikes from Nico Carpignano and Riley Holbrook to earn a 2-2 tie which put them through. The U17’s won 6-1 on the back of a hat trick from Striker Kristian Heptner.
Both teams can now look forward to playing some very strong opposition in the Champions League Division of National Premier League.
Great job boys and Go Placer!
