After a massive Republic FC soccer event in Sacramento on Thursday night, the Placer United boys and girls teams were back doing what they love to do, playing the game competing in tournaments up and down Northern California. Over this past weekend we saw Placer United teams strutting their stuff at the Davis College Boys Showcase, Pleasanton Rage College Girls Showcase and the Mid-Summer Classic in Turlock. Both showcase events had a huge turnout of college scouts.
Out in Davis, where the competition was very tough, the U14B Red, coached by Jorge Fernandez, and the U17B Red, coached by Jason Gantt, took home the championship trophies in premier brackets. The U17B White made it to the semi-finals and tied 1-1 in regulation time. Unfortunately they lost out in a PK shootout 7-6. Also competing in the premier brackets were the U13 Red, U15 Red, U16 Red and U18 Red.
Over in Pleasanton our U15 Red, U16 Red, U16 White, U18 Red and U18 White girls teams competed at the Rage College Showcase.
The U16G Red had three wins and one draw in the Super 1 group and ended the event as semi-finalists. The U18G Red had two wins and two draws and also finished the event as semi-finalists. The U15G Red had one win and one draw, two narrow defeats and finished in 5th place. The U16G White and U18G White both had excellent weekends versus some very good competition. The U16G White had two draws and two one goal losses. The U18G White had four one goal defeats and were extremely competitive in the Super 4 bracket.
Down in Turlock our U9B Red, U10B Red, U12B White and U13B White all played in the Mid-Summer Classic where not only was the weather hot, so was the opposition. Unfortunately no teams brought home silverware but they all competed hard and had a fun time.
Congratulations to all of the players and teams on a great weekend of soccer and collegiate exposure!
