U14 Boys State Quarterfinals Recap

U14 BOYS STATE QUARTERFINAL A
5/6Sacramento United
0-4
Heritage SC
Heritage SC proved to be a thorn in the side of Sacramento United early and often, with Josue Parra collecting a brace and Justin Villegas scoring in the first 24 minutes to down United’s hopes of a semifinal early. Sacramento United pressed and pressed to get back into the game, but it just wasn’t in the cards as Heritage’s Diego Ramos capped off a sweet win for the NPL 1 side in second half stoppage time.
U14 BOYS STATE QUARTERFINAL B
5/6Atletico Santa RosaAtletico_med
1-0
SF Glens Evolution
The one-off nature of cup soccer means that upsets can, and will, happen, and that’s just what we got in this match between NPL 1 and Champions League sides. It was the former that came out the victors, with Atletico Santa Rosa Cobras grabbing a hard-fought victory over SF Glens Evolution thanks to an Adrian Gonzalez goal in a match that really could have gone either way.
U14 BOYS STATE QUARTERFINAL C
5/6Napa SA
2-0
Force South
In a colossal match between Champions League squads that could have easily been the final, Napa Soccer Academy scored early in each half to down their rivals from the other side of the Golden Gate Bridge in an otherwise fairly-even match. Justin Sotelo scored just 15 minutes into the match, while Roan Goertz added an insurance goal five minutes into the second half to send Napa into the semifinals.
U14 BOYS STATE QUARTERFINAL D
5/6Monarcas Academy
3-1
Turlock Tornados
The first match of the U14 Boys division was all-but decided in the first 19 minutes when Monarcas scored twice through opportunistic strikes from Bradon Azpeitia and Samuel Clement. But NPL Champions League side Turlock then clamped down on defense, while looking to capture a goal for themselves. Their hopes of a semifinal berth, however, were downed late when Alex Tejeda-Garcia punched NPL 1 Monarcas’ ticket to the semifinal with a dagger that was their 16th goal in three knockout round games. To Turlock’s credit, the Tornados never gave up and were rewarded late with a goal of their own, with Kaleb McDonald ensuring that Turlock wouldn’t be kept off the scoresheet.
