Pleasanton Rage u9 Orange girls soccer team hoisted the State Cup championship trophy this weekend.  The Orange finished #1 atop a field of 72 teams.  The girls, led by coach Axel Thibodeau, beat Davis Legacy Red in the Semifinal by a score of 3-0 earning a chance to meet their nemesis, Mustang Xplosion, in the Final.  The girls executed beautifully finding the net in the first ten minutes on a beautiful cross and then again midway through the second half on a rocket from outside the penalty box.  The defense held staunch and the Orange prevailed 2–0.
This was quite a year for coach Thibodeau’s side – having won Rage Showcase, the BooFest, and now State Cup.  A fantastic group of girls, includes Abby Mai, Aishwarya Anburaja, Alden Hofstede, Aleka Mandava, Ava Haviley, Eva Torrico, Gianna Guerrero, Gianna Owens, Presley Cash, Reese Gotchall, and Riley Horn.  Congratulations girls!

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.
