SACRAMENTO — The American River FC U14 girls’ soccer team, Freedom ’98, placed second at the Suntan Classic Tournament, Aug. 6-7, hosted by the Sac United Soccer Club at Cherry Island! This tough Freedom team beat out their competition all the way to the finals.

They won their first game 4-0 against East Diablo’s Impact Xplosion. In game 2, they defeated MVLA’s Cobras ’97 3-2. A 3-1 win followed in game 3 against the home team, Sacramento United’s Extreme ‘97. The finals against Cap FC United ’98 saw Freedom ’98 apply consistent pressure throughout the game but were unable to capitalize on their chances, losing the game 1-0.  Throughout the tournament, Freedom ‘98 displayed great possession style soccer as they continue to grow as a team.
