South Valley G95 Klippel Win SoCal National Premier League!
South Valley’s U17 girls’ team took first place in the Southern California National Premier League this past weekend. After finishing bracket play on Saturday morning, they advanced to the quarter-final match where they defeated the Carlsbad Elite G95 2-0. On Sunday morning, they defeated Platinum (Inland Empire SURF) G95 2-1 in the semi-finals, and then they met Albion’s G95 team in the finals on Sunday afternoon. The score of the game was 1-1 through regulation and over-time periods! South Valley won the match in PKs, going 9-shooters deep with Goalkeeper, Kate Hamilton, forcing one shot error and making two saves. Nikki Barnes tucked with winning shot past Albion’s out-stretched goalkeeper to claim the victory! The team will now travel to Colorado this summer to compete in the National League’s Championship which includes the first-place finishers from all sixteen US Club Soccer National Leagues. Great job, G95s and coach Shelby Klippel!!
