U16 AC Team is BIG SIS to U10 White
US National Camp Invite - Milan Moses U14 Premier
The Olympic Development Program (ODP) is an opportunity that I am very happy I was able to experience. I was able to meet girls from throughout the western states. I strongly recommend every player who has a chance to try out for ODP do so. They will benefit from the experience.
The first stage of ODP is the District level. The competition was good and I was able to meet girls from other teams in the area. After making the District team, I was invited to tryout to be on the State team. Now, this is where the competition gets tougher. I had to compete with girls that come from Fresno all the way up the California border. Everyone brought a unique skill and ability to the tryout and the competition was fierce. I played hard and strong and was invited to try out for the Regional Team in Idaho with 13 western regions in the United States. There were many impressive players, but I had to be all in and hold nothing back. It was very important that I had faith in myself and use the skills I had learned. At the Regional camp, it was very intense because your every move was being evaluated on and off the field. Regional was not all work, I was able to make friends who I will never forget. At the end of camp I was selected to go to Regional Holdover Camp in Ontario, Ca. I was very proud to be selected.
While at Holdover Camp, I was invited to the U14 National training camp in Portland. I was able to play with the 72 top players of my age around the country. This was an amazing experience; it will be with me for the rest of my life. We also met members that were once on the National Team. Training at the University of Portland was great, and the coaching on the field was outstanding.
Being in ODP, I had to be flexible with my positions. I played forward for 7 years and I was moved to midfield by the state coach. While playing in Idaho, the regional coaches moved me to defender. Not only was I concentrating on mental toughness, but I was also concentrating on mastering my new position.
I have been fortunate to have these great opportunities. I am blessed to have the support of family and friends and I want to thank them. In the five years I have participated in the Pleasanton Rage organization I have received great coaching from Trish Gonzalez and Walter Pratte. I want to acknowledge Philippe Blin for the encouragement he has given me throughout the process. I truly hope as I continue to work hard that these opportunities will continue to present themselves to me.

Capping a an incredible year of highs and lows the U12 Orange team won the Premier 1 State Cup championship title against Davis Legacy in PK’s.
This scrappy team filled with a host of brand new players picked just last spring started by winning the spring gold division title. That allowed them entry into the prestigious fall premier league where they ended respectably in the middle of the pack.
However nothing was more exciting than their journey to the State Cup finals on February 12th. After playing several qualifying games throughout the season the girls found themselves facing Davis Legacy a playoff qualifier. The game was pretty even throughout until the Rage scored a quick goal that popped in and then out so quickly the referee evidently did not see the goal and the Rage was denied the win. The game ended in a tie 0-0.
In another qualifier the Rage took no chances and let loose against the NBEFC Rapids winning 5-0. The goals were a mixed bag with Tiara Lewis scoring the first two. Ariana Nino made a direct kick to make it 3-0. The last 2 goals came from pure team work when Rachel Rice assisted Megan Von Sosen and then Sadie Grozier set up a nice play for Sam Frost who capitalized on it.
In the quarter finals Rage faced Placer United SC. Megan Von Sosen started things off with a solo goal followed by an assist from Mia Banducci to Sam Frost, and finally an assist from Sam Frost to Jessica Hayes. The Rage won 3-1 and moved to the semi finals where they faced COSC-Odyssey in a nail biter that came down to the final minutes of the game when Rachel Rice broke down the left wing and put a left foot shot over the goalie for the 1-0 win!
Rage had made it to the finals of the State Cup Premier 1 where again they faced Davis Legacy. Davis scored first, but Megan Von Sosen tied it up. With a 1-1 score the game went into overtime. After a scoreless 10 minutes. The game would be decided on PKs. Sam Frost was up first and drilled the ball into the net; Davis answered back score: 1-1. Rachel Rice up next was able to score, but then Davis missed, score: Rage 2-1. Jo Salinas stepped up and put her ball straight in too, score: Rage 3-1. Davis answered back making it 3-2. Megan Von Sosen scores Rage now 4-2, but Davis answers back, score: 4-3. With tremendous pressure riding on the final kick Tiara Lewis calmly placed the ball down looked up and with all her force shot the ball past the goalie for the 5th and final Rage PK!
The U12 Orange team had won the championship game and ended 9th in the NorCal standings! Congratulations to all the girls for a terrific and exciting season! posted: February 19, 2011

RAGE U11 PREMIER
The spring soccer division winning Rage U11 Premier team took home another title (and a very large trophy) over the weekend when they finished in first place at the Santa Cruz Pro Am Beach Soccer Tournament. 10 members of the team participated in the 2 day event. All five games were played on sand; the games consisted of three exhausting 12 minute periods played in temperature that reached 85 degrees.
Saturday’s 8am game was the only game played on “packed sand”, as the Rage took the field against Dublin and won it decisively 19-1. Then under the blazing sun and a very loose playing field of sand the afternoon became a little more concerning as the girls tied the Placer Pride 10-10, but thanks to careful strategy planning by beach coach Jim Frost the girls knew they needed a shutout in their third game on Sunday in order to advance to the playoffs, and boy did the girls deliver, an 8-0 shutout over the Thunder.
Onto the semi finals, another hot tough game, but the Rage was determined to advance, and beat the Wipeout 8-6. The finals were just by coincidence against Livermore a team that these girls have gone head to head with more than once. It was hot, it was getting late, but nothing was going to get in the way of the Rage winning this tournament. The team stayed on top of Livermore throughout and won the championship title with another shutout 2-0.
Our girls were tough and determined throughout the entire weekend! Congratulations to those that played and brought the 1st place trophy back to Pleasanton!

RAGE U11 PREMIER
The Rage U11 Premier girls fought till the bitter end for their first place position against the Livermore Rampage 98. It was a total team contribution and the girls battled hard throughout, forwards Rachel Rice, Jo Salinas, Megan Von Sosen, Sarah Broacha went on goal numerous times, but were shut down by the notoriously tough Rampage defense. Midfielders Hunter Vice, Bianca Stubler, Jessica Hayes, Sam Frost, Sadie Grozier, Brooke Williams and Mia Banducci did their part to move the ball forward, but the Rage could just not convert. Fortunately as good as the Rampage defense was Pleasanton’s was even better, backs Ariana Nino, Tiara Lewis, Lorna Roberts, Amy Schoendienst and Haley Okumura were stellar in silencing any Livermore attempts and keeper Juliet Allen ensured there would be absolutely no Livermore goals. These two arch rivals ended with a nil-nil game, but it was enough to keep the Rage on top! Congratulations ladies on your 6-2-0 spring season and your division title!

PLEASANTON RAGE U16D3 ORANGE WRAPS UP SEASON WITH SECOND PLACE FINISH AT ASSOCIATION CUP
The Pleasanton Rage U16D3 Orange team completed its season with a second place finish at the Association Cup last Sunday in Elk Grove. In the finals, Rage Orange faced the Clovis Crossfire 98G, the winner of the other semifinal round. Rage Orange surrendered a goal early in the first half, but quickly locked down on defense while the Rage attack looked to create scoring chances on the other end of the field. Neither team would prove able to convert throughout the rest of the game, however, and in the end the Crossfire outlasted Rage Orange to take the championship 1-0.
Despite the tough loss, the girls' success at the Association Cup capped off a tremendous season filled with noteworthy accomplishments:
- In reaching the finals, the Rage Orange advanced more deeply in the Association Cup than any other Rage Division 3 team has in the last ten years
- Three first place finishes and once second place finish out of four tournaments entered
- A second consecutive undefeated season in league play, with an uncapped goal differential of 45
- A second consecutive District 3 league championship
Congratulations to the girls and coaches Joe Santana and Malcolm Cerri on a season well done. Go Rage!

PLEASANTON RAGE U16D3 ORANGE ADVANCES TO THE FINALS OF THE ASSOCIATION CUP
The Pleasanton Rage U16D3 Orange team advanced to the finals of the Association Cup this past weekend with back to back victories in single elimination play. The quarterfinals pitted the Rage against the Sacramento SA Velocity, a team that averaged over 5 goals per game while shutting out their opponents in last week's pool play. Undeterred, the Rage held steadfast and broke through in the second half, when midfielder Nikki Cerri one-touched a cross from Cassie Santana into the net from the 5 yard line. This proved to be the only score of the game and enough to advance the Rage Orange squad into Sunday's semifinals.
In the semifinals, the Rage faced a tough and talented Clovis Crossfire 95G team. The game started ominously with a serious knee injury to a Rage player within minutes of kickoff, halting the game for 30 minutes. Sunshine then turned to wind, rain and hail as the elements wreaked havoc throughout the hotly contested match. Both defenses asserted themselves, stifling numerous offensive attacks throughout the game. The game would remain scoreless at the end of regulation, through the first 15 minute overtime, and deep into the second. It appeared the winner was going to be determined by penalty kicks when defender Kayla Cerri wheeled on a rebounded corner kick to carry the Rage to the finals on a dramatic last second goal and 1-0 victory.
With these victories, the Rage U16D3 Orange team advances to this week's Association Cup final in Elk Grove. Congratulations to the girls and coaches Joe Santana and Malcolm Cerri on their success to date. Go Rage!

Despite injuries that decimated the squad to starters and just two subs, the Rage showed their resilience in their final pool match, soundly beating Central Marin United 4-0 to advance to the championship against tournament host Sonoma Riot!. The girls took control from the start in the final, scoring four goals by halftime while smothering the Riot! attack with stout defense en route to a decisive 5-0 victory.
The following week, the girls closed out their season with impressive 8-0 and 5-0 victories over DYS Impulse and Walnut Creek Impact--their 26th and 27th consecutive wins in District 3 games dating back to 2008/2009. In capturing the District 3 championship for the second year in a row, the girls recorded a league high 48 goals during their unbeaten season while limiting opponents to just 3.
With additional tournament victories this season at the Santa Clara Rotary Cup and Santa Cruz Classic, and a 2nd place finish at the Soccer City Warmup, the girls continue to impress with a potent combination of offensive firepower, stingy defense and steely resolve.

U19 D3 White Soccer City Champions
Rage U19 White participated in the annual Pleasanton Soccer City warmup tournament. As their last chance to gauge the teams progress before the league schedule began, the team came prepared to give it their all. In their first test as a team two weeks before, the team struggled a little scoring goals. Due to that, the team was ready to come out hard and get a quick start to the tournament. They did not disappoint! They quickly jumped out to an early lead and were winning 4-0 by the half. An excellent effort by the offense resulted in a final score of 7-0 Rage. The defensive core put forth an amazing effort limiting the opposition MDSA Elite Barcelona to very few opportunities on goal.
Goals were scored by Sasha, Carly, Shelby and Kennedy. In the second game, a shorthanded Santa Rosa Outlaws team put up an amazing fight. After battling to a 0-0 draw at the half, a lack of substitutes and the relentless attack of the Rage team took its toll as Rage got an early goal to take a 1-0 lead. Later in the half we scored our second goal to help secure the victory. Once again exceptional work from the defensive core and two critical saves by the Goalie Bryanna ensured a second team shutout. Final Score Rage win 2-0. Goals were scored by Sasha and Katie. The third game against Roseville Ambush on Sunday really tested the teams determination and grit. The entire game was extremely physical and tested the teams willingness to fight hard through adversity to reach their desired goal of a third win that would guarantee a place in the championship game. After a hard 30 minute first half the team came away with a 1-0 lead. The very physical play in the game resulted in a scary injury to Katie. After the injury, the team rallied around Katie to get two quick goals to put the game out of reach, ending in a final score of 3-0 for Rage.
Goals were scored by Shelby and Sasha. Once again the defensive core played a huge part in ensuring that the team registered their third straight shutout. In the Championship game Sunday afternoon the team played a tough Mustang Blast team. We started a little slowly which kept Goalie Bryanna more busy than she had been all tournament but her saves early in the game gave the team time to settle down and get back to their winning game plan. Again a hard fought first half ended in a 0-0 draw. In the second half Rage came out and the team built on their late first half momentum to put more pressure on the Blast defensive core and that resulted in an early goal.
The team continued to pressure the opposition which resulted in an insurance goal with about 15 minutes to play in the second half. In a great back and forth game that saw many great plays from both sides the final whistle blew to result in another Rage shutout. Final score Rage 2 Mustang Blast 0 and a championship for the Rage White team. Goals were scored by Shelby and Sasha and once again the defensive core was amazing. What an incredible team effort! Congratulations to the team and coaches who have worked incredibly hard to gel the cores of two different teams from last season into what we can now see will be a very strong team in the upcoming league season. What an amazing time was had by all. You should be extremely proud. 4 wins, 4 shutouts, 14 goals for and 0 goals against, and one amazingly hard fought championship.

U19 D3 Orange
The 3rd Annual Rage Orange excursion to Ft. Bragg took place the weekend of August 13/14, with the team netting third place. Everyone – parents and players – seemed to have a great time. There was great support all weekend, with a bunch of elements that made the weekend such a success: the hotel and view, the water activity, team meals, a scavenger hunt, a bonfire on the beach... While the tournament itself was certainly an important part of the weekend, the opportunity for the girls (especially those new to the team) to spend time together was invaluable, and that seemed to work out very well. The weather was glorious all weekend (even for those who stayed longer), and all in all the trip was a wonderful break for everyone, especially with the return to school looming.
And yes, there were games to write about. Overall it was a very pleasing performance, with just disappointment for the girls that they did not make it to the Championship game. They played some really great soccer, and certainly well enough to get to the final, but it transpired that we needed to win our third game 2-0 to do that… The defense was solid throughout, and we created more than enough chances, and except for one game we were pretty deadly on offense.
Game one against Rocklin Blue Heat was a repeat of last season's tournament, except that this time the 3-0 advantage was increased to 5-0. We took 15 shots at goal (ten on target), and while Rocklin managed five efforts themselves, they fell away as we stepped up towards the end. Mary Gruen opened our account from Haley Boehmer's pass on 9 minutes, and Nayo Clinchard made it 2-0 on 22, with an amazing long-range speculative effort that looped over the GK's head and in off the far post. Haley headed home Amy Moore's excellent corner on 38 minutes, and then delicately placed the fourth in off the post after 49 minutes, converting Mads Nethery's excellent through pass. Sarah Machado completed the scoring right at the final whistle, hitting one of her free kick specials (this one even longer than normal), after missing with one just a couple of minutes before.
Game two was on a poor field against Azzurri Pelligrini from Yuba City . Kicking against a strong wind, we took a deserved two goal lead and our opponent seemed well out of it, but then some comedy defending allowed them back in the game, visibly raised their spirits, and we were a little fortunate to emerge 4-3 winners. Mary Gruen opened our account on eight minutes with a glorious long-distance finish off the post, with the assist going to Autumn Whitney, and when we went 2-0 ahead with Amy Moore's well-placed penalty kick five minutes later, it seemed game over. However, we began to lose our focus; we picked up a yellow card and there was a very rare fumble of a long-range free kick five minutes before the break, which dribbled over the line. Amy had a couple of saves early in the second half, but poor clearances and general panic allowed Azzurri to tie it up on 37 minutes. We took the lead two minutes later when Olivia Zhu scored from a narrow angle, but the scoring was still not over. Having all watched a Sarah FK special fall short, we were still watching when the resulting clearance went downfield, was well collected and then brilliantly hit over and wide of Carly Boehmer with arguably the goal of the tournament on 44 minutes. Having come back twice, Azzurri's tails were well and truly up, but we scored the winning goal four minutes later, when Olivia took a quick free kick to find Mary, who hammered home an unstoppable shot. What a wild afternoon! We had 14 shots at goal, only three of which were off target, while Azzurri scored with every effort completed.
Game three against Wesco Vipers was a travesty, but taught us how failing to finish can ruin your championship aspirations. We won the shots at goal race 24-0, but the game, amazingly, ended 0-0. Some of our misses defied belief, but in mitigation, their GK played very well. We could have done with the extra ten minutes playing time (the game was shortened to allow for a possible third game in a day), but based on the evidence perhaps we would not have scored with another hour of play! In the other two brackets similar strong performances meant that there were two teams with more points than us, so we found ourselves meeting Wesco again in the Consolation game.
Wesco were delighted to be where they were, having a record of 0-5, 1-1, 0-0 and a 1-0 win in the 8am game, whereas we were all probably disappointed at finding a 2-0-1 record not enough for the final. It was important to raise our spirits, put the past behind us, and demonstrate that we were a better team than the 0-0 suggested… and we delivered to order, winning comfortably 4-0. Haley Boehmer opened our account after nine minutes, and Ari Siegel made it two just three minutes later (both assists unrecorded). Olivia Zhu made it 3-0 after 35 minutes, after good work and a pass from Nayo Clinchard, and playmaker turned scorer with a volley from close range, following Amy Moore's corner, four minutes before the final whistle. We created 16 chances (only two off the frame), including one from Mads Nethery that hit the post, and allowed only four Wesco efforts on target.
So our final account was three wins and one draw, and an excellent 13 goals scored with three against. Well done to everyone, and I hope you will all treasure the memories of what was a wonderful weekend away.

Rage U15 Orange Wins Their 3rd Title of the Season
The Rage U15 Orange team overcame a weekend of adversity to capture their third tournament title of the season. The girls persevered through injuries, illness & sweltering heat at the Bob Fowler Memorial Classic tournament in Concord to win the U15 Girls Division. In the first game, Rage dominated the TPSC Sharks 6-0 with an impressive display of offensive teamwork & passing skills while six different Rage players scored. The second game was played in the afternoon heat against Walnut Creek Impact but the Rage defense held strong and the team outlasted their opponents 3-0. On Sunday morning, Rage and Livermore Fusion SC squared off for the top spot in the bracket & the chance to play in the tournament championships. Both teams fought hard for the victory but the Rage offense was too much for Livermore in the end & the team earned their spot in the final game with a 1-0 victory. The tournament championship paired our Rage girls against Mustang Stampede in the heat of the afternoon. Once again, the Rage defense held firm and the offense needed only one goal to secure the championship title. This is the second tournament where the girls have held their opponents scoreless. Excellent job ladies!

U16 D3 White
Rage U-16 D3 White Takes 2nd At Benicia Fall Classic!
The Pleasanton Rage U-16 D3 White team played extremely well in the extreme heat at the Benicia Fall Classic this past weekend. Winning three straight games against tough teams, Rage advanced to the Championship game and took 2nd in a tight match that was undecided until the last few minutes.
Game 1 was against a familiar competitor, Mustang Rush. Rage came ready to play, fought hard, demonstrated excellent possession and passing, and walked away with a 2 - 1 win. In addition, the Rage team represented league values well showing restraint and good sportsmanship in the face of some challenging situations.
Game 2 was a great match against El Cerrito Futbol Club. Rage dominated the field with the majority of the game played in the attacking half. But with temps above 95, the girls were fighting conditions as much as their opponents on the field. Great support from parents with cold towels, shade, and water in ice helped the team get a the 2 - 1 win.
Game 3 was the only thing standing between Rage going to the Championship game and the girls knew it. The defense was tested with several fast-footed strikers on the Sacramento Inferno team. The forward line kept the pressure on and scored 3 vs. 2 for Inferno.
The Championship Game was against Vacaville Aftershock and played in 95 degree weather as well. The competition was the toughest yet. Rage rose to the challenge and scored first. Before the half was over, Inferno scored as well. The second half was 1 - 1 until the very end when an Inferno striker shot off a rocket to unfortunately end the game 1 - 2. Rage Coaches Julie Solomon and Wayne Buchanan are immensely proud of their team's showing and fortitude. Congratulations to Vidya Awasty, Rachel Black, Ashley Buchanan, Brooke Campbell, Isabela Castaneda, Alex Dickinson, Rachel Duggan, Alexis Faria, Jenel Firneno, Sasha Greenlee, Bryanna Miller, Carly O'Brien, Annette Ramirez, Jessica Sanassarian, Maddie Solomon, Katie Styles, and Cely Thomas.
Pleasanton Rage U15 Orange wins their second tournament of the season!
After winning the 16 Gold Division in the Magic Cup Tournament last month, the U15 Orange team follows up with another tournament title at Rage Soccer City Warm-up. The team won all four games with exceptional defensive play as they held all of their opponents scoreless for the tournament. In the first game, they defeated last year's tournament finalist MTH Pac Inferno 2-0 with outstanding offensive play from both the forwards & midfielders. Rincon Valley Impact put up a strong fight in the second game but Rage finally took advantage of their many scoring opportunities late in the game to come away with a 1-0 victory. The team came out very strong in their third game against Palo Cedro Sting and cruised to a 3-0 win to earn their spot in the finals. Rage faced last year's Association Cup Champs from Fair Oaks in the championship game but they were up for the challenge. The teams battled to a 0-0 tie thru regulation play & 2 overtime periods so it all came down to penalty kicks. Rage prevailed 4-2 winning their second tournament in a row in dramatic style with PK's. Both Rage goalies played an outstanding championship game and had several key saves to help the team earn the victory. Great job ladies!

U19 D3 and Mendocino coast Skunk Classic
The Rage U19 D3 White skunked the competition in winning the Mendocino Coast Skunk Classic. Sydney Okumura’s long-range strike from 30 yards held up as the lone goal in a 1-nil victory over the Newark Freedom at Timberwolf Stadium in Fort Bragg. The championship victory capped a perfect weekend that saw the Rage defeat the Rocklin Blue Heat (4-1), Ft. Bragg Hot Salsa (3-nil), and Yuba Azzurri Peligro (2-nil). Haley Boehmer led the offensive charge with 3 goals along with Arielle Siegel (2 goals), Mary Gruen (2), Co-captains Madison Nethery and Sarah Machado, and Okumura. The North Coast’s chill was only matched by a stellar defensive effort, with the Rage allowing a first-game goal before completely freezing out the last three opponents. Autumn Whitney and Kara Matsune kept speedy forwards in check while Co-Captain Carly Boehmer made countless incredible saves in goal. The White will try to make it two in a row when they take the field next weekend in the Santa Clara Rotary Cup. Posted: August 15, 2010
