U12 Orange “RAGE” through to win the VACAVILLE SHOOTOUT
Hustle and heart set the RAGE U12 Orange team apart from the competition as they went undefeated in the Vacaville tourney. They totaled 19 goals and allowed 0 making it a true championship run. When asked how it felt to win the championship… ”It’s GREAT, but we know that as a team and only as a team can we make a championship dream come true.”
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.

Coach Mike Beiler’s U18 Premier team had some success August 2nd and 3rd at the Sac United Suntan Classic. After only two weekends of playing together, the team brought home the U18/U19 Championship trophy! Besides battling the hot weather on Saturday the girls had to endure two rounds of penalty kicks in order to secure the First Place prize.
Well fought weekend win, girls!
The team also was the finalist in the Soccer by the Bay tournament August 16th and 17th. Facing the Marin FC team in the finals with limited substitutes, the team held the Marin to just one goal. Quite an accomplishment against a team who had outscored their opponents in bracket play 16-0.
