U16 BOYS NPL 1 SOUTH
Lamorinda SC Navy 0 – Santa Clara Sporting Green 0
In a match between the top two teams in the U16 Boys NPL 1 South, neither side was able to break through as Lamorinda and Santa Clara played to a scoreless draw. The lack of goals was somewhat surprising for Lamorinda, who have peppered their opponents for 18 goals on the season, while Santa Clara improved on their strong defensive record which now stands at less than a goal per game.
U16 GIRLS NPL 1 EAST
FC Elk Grove Platinum 1 – Folsom Lake Earthquakes Premier 0
Elk Grove Scorer: Ceja
Folsom Lake Premier entered their marquee match against defending Champions League champions FC Elk Grove with a chance to move to within one point of the highly-touted side. But a moment of brilliance from Kassandra Ceja in the 33rd minute ensured that Folsom’s upset bid wouldn’t be successful as FC Elk Grove improved to 5-0-0 on the season.
