The Placer United U9 and U10 teams concluded their 2014/15 season by competing in the Copa del Rey Tournament December 6-7, 2014. Placer United had three teams reach the final!
Highlighting the weekend for the Club was U10B Black. Coach John Bustos and the boys capped off a great State Cup run finishing in the Final Four and as State Cup 2 Finalist by winning the Championship at the Copa del Rey Tournament. They went undefeated in 4 matches scoring 9 goals and only receiving 1 goal. They beat their local rival Galaxy Blues 1-0 in an exciting final that had all the spectators at the edge of their seats throughout the match. The winning goal was scored by center midfielder Davy Padilla who was dominant throughout and the leading scorer of the tournament.
The U9G Gold team had a fantastic run. Winning 1-0 on two occasions along with a 0-0 draw to help them advance to the final. This battles took it’s toll on the team unfortunately, and they came up against an in form Elk Grove Navy team and lost in the final. It was a great effort by Coach Sarah and the girls, which highlighted their fantastic growth this season.
The U10G Black team also made it to their division final courtesy of two 1-1 draws and a 2-0 win. In the final, the team unfortunately lost out 2-0, but it’s been another good year for Coach Janis’ group who did so well in their State Cup run a few weeks back.
Placer United U10G Gold started the tournament extremely well with two wins of 1-0 and 3-0 to set them up nicely. However, they lost 1-0 in a close game on Sunday morning to knock them out of the tournament and the chance to set up a Placer versus Placer finale.
The U9B Gold team had a mixed bag of results, with one win and two losses. They were in contention to reach the final heading into Sunday. The U9B Black team played well in in a very difficult bracket but came up on the short end.
Placer U10B Gold had a tough weekend in a very competitive division. They had three very narrow defeats but played very well.
The U10B White team had a difficult opening day with two losses. They responded well the following day and ended their season with a 1-1 draw versus Stockton.
Congratulations to all of our U9 and U10 teams this season!
