The incredible regular season was capped by an improbable run to the NCS Semifinal game as the 7th seed. In the first round, the it was the battle of the Falcons as College Park took on Foothill HS from Pleasanton. With a 12-10 win, our Falcons advanced to face the #2 ranked Monte Vista Mustangs. It was a hard fought game that saw multiple players earn 3 ejections, but the Falcons prevailed 10-8, with a 5 goals from Misha Popov and 4 from Nic Austen. The Falcons fell in the Semifinal game to the eventual D1 Champion Redwood Giants 11-8.
Congratulations to our three graduating seniors; Mason Gourley, Zac Gartner, and Alex Lam.
Next year, the College Park Falcons are moving up to the DAL Foothill Division to join some of the East Bay's finest teams in Miramonte, Campolindo, and Las Lomas. The tough competition should help prepare for another deep NCS run in 2024 and 2025.
Thank you, and Go Falcons!!
