2017 Ghost and Goals Champions!

Congratulations to our boys for winning the 2017 Granite Bay Ghosts and Goals Tournament!  The “Slayers” ’05 RR played some great soccer over the weekend, winning all their games and allowing only 3 goals against…a great way to end the Fall outdoor season.

Huracan in Semi-Finals of NNSL

Congratulations for our partner team in the Northern Nevada Soccer League (NNSL).  Huracan had a great game in the Quarter-Finals, beating Antequera 3-0 but unfortunately lost in a tough Semi-Final match-up to Reno Inter.  Thank you boys, coach Chinto and coach Julio for a great season!

Players 05 RR to Semi-Final of CUFA. Out On Penalties.

 Great weekend for Players 05 RR at CUFA in South Lake Tahoe.  After a comfortable win Saturday morning against Spanish Springs, our boys faced a highly ranked team (top 60 in USA) from Impact soccer club in CA and came away with a convincing 4-1 win and the top spot in our group standings.  Our Semi-final match-up on Sunday was South Tahoe La Onda – a team we have seen in many times over the last year.  After a very tight game, remarkably, we were were tied after regulation ( again!  4 out of the last 5 games have been tied) and we ultimately lost on penalties.  La Onda went on to win the tournament.

Reno Select ’05 – 2nd Place in Elk Grove

Reno Select ’05, an all-star team representing 7 GBYSL teams (and 4 different clubs), competed in the Elk Grove Kickoff Classic this weekend and came home with 2nd Place Medals in the Gold division. An impressive result being that they had never played a game together until Saturday morning. Reno Rovers was represented by 6 players on the tournament roster and another 3 players on the local practice squad.
