Emany Plasencia scored four goals in the 14-and-under Broncos’ 4-0 win in the CYAA championship soccer game against Templeton on Saturday, Nov. 7.

The Broncos first defeated Atascadero on penalty kicks; then Bronco Diego Garcia scored three goals to beat Paso Robles and get the Broncos into the final game against Templeton, according to Coach Luis Plasencia.

CYAA director Chris Gutierrez said that Plasencia’s team was the only local team to win its playoff games. “Everyone else was eliminated early.”
