OutRageOus Wins California Cup

The U14 Flight OutRageOus girls wrapped up their 2015 Pleasanton Rage season winning the California Cup in Fremont.  The girls showed great character and resilience during the tournament, and they staged a dramatic come-from-behind victory in the final minutes of the championship match.
OutRageOus never gave up as they battled against Rage Revolution, another Pleasanton team.  The final goal was scored by Constanze Huebner with 4 minutes remaining in the game – a long shot that found the upper corner of the goal, despite outstanding goal-keeping.  Earlier in the second half, Jordyn Self tapped a beautiful cross from Abbey Baer into the net to tie the score.  The match ended with a 2-1 victory for OutRageOus.  The entire OutRageOus team contributed to the win with tremendous defensive and goal-keeping efforts as well.

The team passed the ball incredibly well and quickly found Gianna Owens up top for a quick 1-0 lead. Rage continued to dominate possession and eventually Gianna Guerrero found net again early in the second half, putting Rage up 2-0. They would go on to win the game 2-1 on strong goalkeeping from Reese Gotchall and Eva Torrico; relentless defending and midfield play from Presley Cash, Ava Haviley, Abby Mai, and Alden Hofstede; and further offensive firepower from Riley Horn, Aleka Mandava and Aishwarya Anburaja.  This is Rage’s second high profile tournament win and readies the Orange for the upcoming Norcal State Cup.

u11orange
Congratulations to the Pleasanton RAGE U11 Orange team on winning the 2015 Santa Cruz Breakers Cup – Premier Division. 
The team, coached by Darin Preszler, went undefeated to win the championship.  Together with her tremendous defenders, goalkeeper Elizabeth Fineberg did not allow a single goal in four games.  On the offensive side of the field, Mia Corpuz, Emma Fuller, Alura Hagan Kaitlin Lemus, Alana Owens, Shiranika Rajsekar, and Kiana Tahmassebi were tenacious in their possession of the ball, passing and communication.  The defenders, Casey Currie, Ava Hofstede, Paige Morgan, Kelly Queen, and Elizabeth Williams, were relentless in keeping the ball on the opponents’ side of the field and pressuring the other team to turn the ball over. In pool play, RAGE outscored their opponents 7-0 with goals by Emma Fuller, Alura Hagan, Alana Owens, and Kiana Tahmassebi. The team won the championship game 1-0 with seamless defense, and a second half goal by Emma Fuller.  Winning the tournament was a tremendous team effort, and all the girls were instrumental in winning the trophy.

RAGE U9 Orange

u9-orange
Congratulations to the Pleasanton RAGE u9 Orange on winning the 2015 Pleasanton Rage Showcase.  The team, coached by Axel Thibodeau, went undefeated (4-0) to win the championship.  Following the Spring season where the girls played up at u10, this was their first time playing at their age group – and they didn’t disappoint.  They beat Santa Rosa, Clovis, and Mustang Mercury before heading into the championship game against Mustang’s #1 team, Xplosion.  
 
Led offensively by Giana Owens, Giana Guerrero, Riley Horn and Aishwarya Anburaja – the girls went ahead early with two quick goals.  Alden Hofstede, Ava Haviley and Aleka Mandava held down the midfield; while Abby Mai, Eva Torrico, Presley Cash and Reese Gotchall stellar defense limited Mustang’s scoring opportunities.  At full time the game was 3-1, Orange on top and riding momentum into the Fall season.
