This weekend saw the Placer U13B 02 Black take 2nd at the Davis Classico Mother’s Day edition tournament, in the League 1 Division.
Throughout Spring League, this team has been battling a number of first teams from around the region. It has been a big learning experience and has paid off at tournament time.
In the four games played, Placer scored three goals in each game, beating Ethos 3-0, Folsom 3-1, and Davis 3-1. The boy’s only loss came in the first game against the Idaho Rush. Placer had the lead early but Idaho squad was relentless and came back for a 4-3 victory.
The disappointment of losing this game fueled the remainder of the tournament as Placer looked to control each game, scoring early (35 seconds in the 1st half against Ethos), and being more responsible on defense. Although the boys tied with Idaho at top of the group, Placer’s loss in the head-to-head game resulted in 2nd place. A morale boosting, exciting weekend is just what this team needed, showing players, parents, and coach, that this team is capable of enjoying success and just how much the boys have grown in a short few months. Onwards and upwards…Go Placer!
