What a weekend for the Placer United Soccer Club! We had three teams reach the Norcal State Cup Finals which will take place in Modesto at Mary Grogan Community Park on February 14th.
For the second year in a row, our U12G 03 Gold reached the Norcal State Cup Final! The top eight teams in the state played quarter-final and semi-final matches this past weekend to see who would end up playing for the coveted Cup. In the quarter-final game, the girls put on a dominating performance and they beat the Inter Rage Academy Storm 3-0. In the semi-finals, the team squared off against a very talented DeAnza Force squad. The team prevailed 2-0 and now will play for the championship on Saturday, February 14th versus West Coast Fury.
The U12G 03 Black has made a fantastic run through the Diamond 2 State Cup and now see themselves in the final. The comeback kids were down 2-1 in the quarter-finals against Atletico Santa Rosa Espanol and rallied to score two goals for a 3-2 victory. In the semi-finals, the team found themselves down 1-0 but once again came back with a flurry of scoring chances and beat Tahuichi FC 3-1 to reach the final on Saturda, February 14th versus Walnut Creek.
The U13G 02 Gold reached the final of the Premier 1 Cup. The girls up-ended one of our regional competitors, Sacramento United Extreme in the quarter-finals 2-0. In the semi-finals, the girls faced a very athletic San Francisco Vikings squad. The match was back and forth but our girls found a way to win 1-0 and advance to the championship game! The team will face off against SMC Star in the final.
Congratulations to all of the players and families on a fantastic weekend and we wish you the best of luck in the finals!
