NorCal State Cup Semifinals Preview: U16 Boys

U16 BOYS STATE SEMIFINAL A
5/12Napa Soccer Academy
0-1
Cal Odyssey Red
As this tie between California Odyssey and Napa Soccer Academy appeared headed for overtime and possibly kicks from the mark, the Odyssey’s Gabriel Torres wrote himself into the history books of his club. With the referee just about to blow for time, Torres struck to break open a scoreless game, sending the Odyssey into the final and ending Napa’s run.
U16 BOYS STATE SEMIFINAL B
5/12SF Glens Evolution
0-2
Santa Rosa United
Scoreless for much of the game despite the large gap in league play between these two teams -- Santa Rosa United play in the NPL Champions League, while the SF Glens participate in the State Premier Championship -- the favorites finally opened the scoring in the 65th minute through Sergio Villagomez. With the Glens pushing for an equalizer, Gael Cervera Ramirez scored perhaps the goal of the round, hitting a 30-yard volley over the Glens keeper in what turned out to be the last kick of the game.
