NPL/ECNL-RL Matchday #6

With just a month remaining until the NorCal Spring College Showcase kicks off, league action in NorCal Premier Soccer is heading down to the wire. Several of this week’s featured matches could end up as defacto title games as teams from all across the state are making one final push to become champions.

Here are your NPL/ECNL-RL games of the week:

U14 Girls ECNL-RL
9:00 a.m. @ Crittenden Middle School
WSC Crush
In a battle between first and second place, neither MVLA nor WSC Crush have dropped points yet this season. However, while MVLA have played just two games, WSC Crush have already played five, meaning that if they beat MVLA, they'll officially clinch the U14 Girls ECNL-RL title.
