Sol has sight set on National Premier soccer championship

It's July in Sonoma County and for the past few weeks the summer heat is coming directly from the Sol, the county's fourth-level professional soccer team.

In fact, there has been a "Solabration" going on in Rohnert Park the past few weekends.

The undefeated Sol (11-0-3) defeated the Sacramento Gold on Saturday night 3-1 in overtime at Rancho Cotate High to advance to the final four of the eight-year old National Premier Soccer League (NPSL), a 57-team nationwide league.

The Sol won the West Region by beating the Gold and the San Diego Flash in the first round of the West Division playoffs.

"We have a strong possibility to win it all because of our depth," second-year Sol coach Vinnie Cortezzo said. "I like our chances, our guys are really motivated."
