NorCal State Cup Quarterfinals Recap: U15 Boys

U15 BOYS STATE QUARTERFINAL A
4/28SC Sporting Green
1-1
(3-4)
Monarcas
In a game with a decent amount of controversy, each of Monarcas and Santa Clara Sporting had goals disallowed at the bookends of the game. Sporting were the first to hit the back of the net, with Evan Balandini striking in the 31st minute. Shortly into the second half, Monarcas scored on a counter attack to level the game and when neither side could find a winner, the game headed to penalties, which Monarcas won via a 4-3 scoreline.
U15 BOYS STATE QUARTERFINAL B
4/28Walnut Creek Blue
2-3
Ceres Earthquake
In what was one of the most exciting games of the weekend, Walnut Creek looked to be an early favorite to qualify for the semifinals when they scored in just the second minute through Collin Moore. But Ceres equalized just 11 minutes later on a penalty from Luis Fernando Mariscal-Ortiz, only for Walnut Creek to again take the lead on a banger from Marko Blazevic in the 43rd. However, the Earthquake simply wouldn’t give up and were rewarded for their persistence in the 48th and 76th minutes when Cesar Yepez Yepez and Antonio Medina Ordonez scored, respectively, to put Ceres into the next round.
U15 BOYS STATE QUARTERFINAL C
4/28Ajax United Black
0-5
Central Valley Leon
It took just 18 minutes for Central Valley Leon to score the eventual winning goal of the match against Ajax United, with Samuel Galdamez half volleying home a shot after a good touch to set himself up. Leon then showed that they will be a tough out in the rest of the tournament, garnering four goals from four different players to advance to the semifinals.
U15 BOYS STATE QUARTERFINAL D
4/28SF Glens Evolution
1-2
Napa Soccer Academy
While Napa Soccer Academy could not stop peppering the goal of the San Francisco Glens early and often, it was the Glens who took the initial lead, scoring in the 34th minute through Diego Grande. They held that advantage until the 47th minute, when Jorge Galcan Guzman scored the equalizer, before Guzman scored again nine minutes later to take the game and propel Napa into the semifinals.
