After some big victories eight days ago for the U12G Gold and U18G Gold at the Davis Girls College Showcase, and the U18B Gold at the NPL National Finals in North Carolina, the Yellow Submarine set sail again this past Friday with stops at the Davis Boys College Showcase, Girls College Showcase in Pleasanton, and the Girls Mustang Stampede.
Thirteen Placer United boys teams dropped anchor in Davis, six Placer United girls teams pulled into the port of Pleasanton and our U10 and U11 girls surfaced and went ashore at Mustang. With the new club colors drawing rave reviews from both inside and outside of the club, and the sound of Yellow Submarine being hummed on sidelines, the Sub had an awesome weekend on the green seas.
There were close to 100 college coaches in attendance at the Pleasanton Girls College Showcase. The teams had a really good showing as they competed against lots of strong opposition. In the Girls Super Groups, the U15G Gold and U18G Gold finished the weekend as finalists. Over at Mustang event, our U10 and U11 girls also faced some really good competition. Both teams played four games over the weekend and had identical records as they each tied two and lost two in the premier brackets of the tournament.
Meanwhile in Davis, our U12B Gold, U14 Academy, U15B Gold, U18B Gold and U18B Black teams all advanced to the semi-final round. Unfortunately, the U12 Gold , U14 Gold and U18 Black came up a little short. But, a big shout out to the U14B as they were playing up in the U15 bracket and narrowly lost out in the semi’s to the eventual tournament winners from So Cal.
The reigning U17 NPL National Champs had another dramatic semi game as “Captain Clutch” Corban Anderson tied up the game with less than 30 seconds remaining on the clock. In the PK shootout, the boys took care of business with “El Gato” Robert Quintero saving 2 PKs to move on to the championship game. In the final, the boys came out flying and beat a strong Cal Odyssey side 4-1 to win their second big championship in back-to-back weekends.
The U15B Gold won their semi-final 4-0 against a highly ranked Washington State team to advance to the final. The boys really raised their game another notch in the final as they scored three brilliant goals in the first 20 minutes to be crowned U15 Davis College Champions.
During the awards presentation, Omar Oseguera was named MVP of the U15 boys age group and “The Clutch” Corban Anderson received the MVP award in the U18 boys age group.
Congratulations to all the teams on a good weekend and to our champions and MVP players on their latest achievements.
Way to Go Placer! “We all live in a Yellow Submarine!”
