Nine Placer United girls teams travelled down to Davis this past weekend to compete in the Davis College Showcase. Coming off of the club-wide break, the teams had to prepare quickly to get ready for the event. Six of our teams made it out of group play and into the semi-finals, two of which made it to the championship game and one was crowned champion. There were many colleges represented at the event as they were recruiting in the U15-U18 age groups.
The U13G Red had two wins and one loss in group play getting them through to the semi-finals. The lone loss in group play came to the eventual champion, FCA Storm. In the semi-finals, the girls lost a hard fought battle to Mustang.
The U15G Red had two wins and one draw in group play. The draw came against FC Elk Grove who ended up losing in overtime in the final. In the semi’s, the team came up on the short end against Davis.

The U18G White won all three of their preliminary games to reach the semi-finals. The semi-final game went scoreless through regulation time and the girls lost in penalty kicks.
