U19 Boys NPL Spring Showcase: Recap
Marin FC 99
Coming into the weekend, Marin FC led this division by just a single point, but only needed a win in their Saturday matchup against Placer United to garner the title. Marin FC then took care of business, downing Placer by 2-0 scoreline and clinching a ENPL National Finals berth.

East Bay ended up winning their only match via a 2-1 scoreline against Galt, but Peninsula posted nine goals during the Showcase to win this division.
Walnut Creek Blue
A two-point lead in the table was what Walnut Creek came into the showcase with, and they garnered four points against tough competition to make sure that they would come out on top ahead of Mustang SC and Palo Alto SC, who each finished two points off the mark.
San Juan Lightning Blue 2
Coming into the weekend, San Juan SC needed just a win against then second-place Impact SC to claim the title. San Juan made no mistake in their endeavor, beating Impact 5-2 to claim the title, while Santa Rosa United finished in second, three points off the mark.
