Great season for Pleasanton Rage U12 D3

The Pleasanton Rage U12 D3 captured its league title with a thrilling 1-0 win over the Walnut Creek Raptors on Nov. 15.

The game was a hard fought event, with both sides having a number of scoring opportunities. Pleasanton GK's Maddie Aston and Mo Baker each had to make saves on direct kicks from outside the penalty box. Both girls came up big with their saves. The goal came in the second half by Liz Unpingco, as she nailed a high corner finish from 18 yards out off a beautiful assist from Julia Amos. The game was fast paced and physical, as the defensive back line of Jessica Amos, Natalie Reichenback, Ally Nickel and Lauren Epps did their best to help keep Walnut Creek off the scorecard.

The Rage U12 D3 players ended their season with a 10-1-1 league record and title and a super season. Players include Jessica Amos, Julia Amos, Maddie Aston, Madalyn Baker, Kate Berrigan, Kamryn Brown, Devon Buteau, Anna Copenhagen, Kalyn Epps, Lauren Epps, Nicole Lindke, Allison Nickel, Jordan Niermeyer and Sarah Peas.
