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.
