With two early goals in the first half, the Napa United 1839 men’s soccer team defeated Vacaville United Elite, 3-1, last Saturday to improve to 3-0 in La Liga NorCal action.

Napa United struck first in eighth minute when Saiaz Saenz scored after intercepting a giveaway from a defender. Shortly after Vacaville tied the match, Napa United midfielder Juan Flores scored his first first goal of the season in the 19th minute by finishing a good cross from forward Bryan Marin. Luis Garcia scored the third goal for Napa United on a Javier Gonzalez assist.
