Turlock Tornados
It took just 11 minutes for Lamorinda United to show their quality against Turlock FC Orange as Lamorinda scored twice in a flurry through Martin Galvan and Jose Hernandez. But Turlock FC proved their grit, coming back to bring the game within one two minutes before halftime as Roberto Pelayo hit the back of the net. But three minutes after the break, Lamorinda booked their place in the final as Christopher Rogers struck to essentially end the game.
U16 BOYS STATE SEMIFINAL B

SJ Earthquakes
One week after scoring in a two goal quarterfinal victory for the San Jose Earthquakes PDA, Rayshawn Greer continued his magic, scoring again in a two goal semifinal victory to send the Earthquakes into the final. Santa Clara Sporting fell behind in just the fourth minute through that Greer strike, but managed to get back into the game until Tomas Lozano scored in the 41st minute. From there, San Jose defended their lead with calm and composure to ensure qualification for the final.
