The Placer High girls put together a superb 80 minutes at Le Febvre Stadium Tuesday night and knocked off Bear River 2-1 to remain in contention for the postseason.

Placer’s opening goal came from Brittany Bartle on an assist by Ashley Noder.
“The whole team played really well,” Placer coach Steve Cook said. “We played well for the first 15 minutes and then had a really strong second half. It was a team effort. Defense was definitely one of our strong points.”
Olivia Holmes and Rachel Callahan played outstanding field games for Placer, which will take on Lincoln at Le Febvre Stadium on Thursday.
In junior varsity play Placer topped Bear River 3-1.
