USASA REGION IV USSF REGIONAL PLAYOFFS
The Olympic Club, of CSA-North, won the USSF Men’s Amateur regional title with a 2-0 victory over Santa Clara Sporting, also from CSA-North, in a tough, fast paced, well played game.
Chula Vista, of Cal South, kept their hopes for a national title in the USSF Men’s Open Cup alive as they overtook Suki’s FC, from Oregon in a close 2-1 victory.
This year’s playoffs were hosted by CSA-North at the Davis Legacy Youth Soccer League Complex in Davis California. The fields were in excellent condition, well maintained and of match quality and size. All the participants complimented the complex managers on the quality of the site. Clear skies, warm weather, (an average of 80 degrees daily), and good competition made for an excellent tournament.
Most of the teams also complemented the referee crew on their performances, even in the final two games where everything was on the line. Eric Beck and his crew did an outstanding job. The assessors also played an important part in evaluating the performances of all the referees throughout the three days.
Here are the results of the games in both cups:
