Coach Trisha Gonzales leads Manteca Rangers U11 Girls to a second Cal North State Cup



      DANVILLE, Calif.  (December 17, 2023) - Coach Trisha Gonzales has been with this Manteca Rangers United 13G Gold team for the last three years now and in those three years, they have already won two Cal North State Cups.

      Last year's Cal North State Cup was also in December and teams managed to get their Saturday games in. That was before the cup was postponed to a later date due to inclement weather that happened overnight into Sunday. It wasn't until April 22nd of this year that the tournament completed it's second day of competition for the U9-U12 age groups.


      This time around, the beautiful Mustang Soccer Complex welcomed the 2023-2024 Cal North State Cup with no issues whatsoever to crown a TRUE State Cup Champion in Northern California.

      "The girls were really focused trying to take each game at a time," said Coach Trisha Gonzales. "We had kind of a slow start, but they did well and finished with a good win." 

      The Manteca Rangers United 13G Gold were in competition with AC Marin Girls 2013 Black, Lamorinda SC United 2013G Pre-GA and Ajax United 13G Academy, who they played and beat in the Final in April.

      Rangers started the tournament with a 2-0 win over AC Marin and faced Ajax United in their second game on Saturday. That game proved to be just as competitive as the U10 Cal North State Cup Final, finishing in a close 1-0 game in favor of Manteca Rangers.

      "This is my third year going in with them, every year they've progressed," said Gonzales. "Right now they're probably ranked in the top 5 for their age group."

      The Manteca Rangers United 13G Gold finished their journey of back-2-back Cal North State Cup Champions with a dominant 4-1 win over Lamorinda Soccer Club. 

      Overall, Rangers scored seven goals and conceded only one during the tournament, going 3/3 and claiming glory for Manteca Area Soccer League.

      Next year this team will be looking to win their third Cal North State Cup at the U12 Girls age group, which would grant them a spot at the 2025 US Youth Soccer Far West Regional Championships. 


      The 2023-2024 Cal North State Cup for all U13-U19 age groups will be taking place on April 13-14, 2024 at Morgan Hill Outdoor Sports Center in Morgan Hill, California. Several District Cup Champions are already confirmed and waiting for opponents. If your team is interested in playing Cal North State Cup, you have until March 30, 2024 to register. Learn more Here.
