This coming weekend California United will have three teams (U14-Girls, U12-Girls and U10-Boys) playing in their Spring League Championships along with another California United team (U17-Boys) playing in their semi-final game and looking to keep their championship dreams alive. It has been an impressive season for California United as 5 of the 7 club teams reached the playoffs, some in their first season with California United, and one other narrowly missing out on playoffs by 1 point. That alone would be great progress, but seeing the overall success in the pressure filled playoffs is yet another milestone for the individual players as well as the Fillmore club as a whole.

U10-Boys: 5-0 Xolos Academy, Goals: Christian Solis (1), Christian Ramirez (1) Julio Ballesteros (1), Jaycob Guzman (1), Jesus Canchola (1). Overall record 11-0-0.

After a full month of rain outs CU was back in action.

The U-14B took on the VC Galaxy in what ended up being a shootout. Julio Negrete and Daniel Sandoval were the standouts this game as they each had 2 goals in the 5-4 loss.

Unlike the boys, this was a defensive nail biter the whole game for the U 14-G team as they took on the VC Galaxy. With only one goal scored, CU was always in it and applied plenty of pressure on the defense, but ultimately lost 1-0.

The U-13B team also took on the VC Galaxy this weekend in a tough loss with a final score of 5-0.

The U-12 girls looked extremely well this Saturday in their 8-1 win over USA as their passing was on point the entire game resulting in a number of touch goals. Leading the charge was Kari Terrazas with a hat trick ( 3 goals ) followed by Marlene Gonzales with 2 goals and Brooke Nunez, Jessica Rodriguez and Livi Cabral with 1 goal each. It was a great team effort with Fatima Alvarado, Miley Tello and Marlene Gonzales each with an assist and the defense looking extremely strong as well.

The U-10G were in action versus Oxnard Wave which resulted in a 8-3 loss. The offense was lead by Sara Diaz who ended the day with a hat trick ( 3 goals ) for CU. After a tough first half that saw CU down by quite a few goals, the team responded well by making adjustments and playing hard until the end.

The U-10B came out strong against the Santitos and scored often in the 6-1 victory. The scoring leader for the day was Jesus Canchola with 4 while Christian Solis and Jayden Guzman had 1 goal each in this big win for the young team.
