The Butte United U14 traveling club soccer team is rolling up opponents on the pitch.
On Saturday at East 20th Park in Chico, Butte United defeated Dixon SC 8-5 in a high scoring affair. The victory improves Butte United's record to 36-4-9 in their last 49 matches.
But what's perhaps even more impressive is how this group of teenagers is playing at the state tournament level.
There are more than 300 teams in the U14 age group in the state and Butte United has advanced to the quarterfinals, meaning they are one of only eight teams left standing in the state.
Butte United will head to Modesto next weekend to compete in the state tournament.
