NorCal NPL Match Day #14

The first match date following the NorCal NPL showcase took place this past weekend. The girls opened Winter play this weekend with NorCal NPL Fall Champions U14 Girls Placer United, U15 Girls Davis Legacy, and U19 Girls Placer United Red all looking to win the Winter League to become overall NorCal NPL Champions. On the boys side, most teams played their first two matches at the NPL Showcase over the November 23/24 weekend. Several Fall boys teams booked their NorCal NPL Champions League spots at the Showcase and Winter playing teams will be battling to join them in the Spring Competition. The winner of the Boys NorCal NPL Champions League will become NorCal NPL Champion. The NorCal NPL Champions will represent NorCal at the US Club NPL National Finals in July.

Sac United and Marin U17 boys went head to head in a highly competitive game Saturday, both teams were tied for first place with 4 points a piece after the NorCal NPL Showcase weekend. The defenses held strong until the 80th minute when Sac United's John Dollison put away Elias Rieland's shot off the post. It seemed as though Sacramento was going to steal three away points as the match neared the final whistle. Marin began to push forward and scored a stunning volley in the 88th minute by Alejandro Vasquez. The match ended in a 1-1 tie, a fair result considering the number of chances each side created.
