Rage White shuts out San Leandro

Pleasanton Rage White under-13 girls commanded their home field in a 4-0 shutout against the SACYSA California Northstars from San Leandro last weekend.

From kickoff, Rage's left forward, Lucia Castaneda, dribbled the ball to the Northstars' penalty box where she crossed it to Isabella Clark, who kicked a low shot toward the net. Blocking Clark's shot, the Northstars' goalie wasn't able to contain the ball. Isabella quickly seized her opportunity to shoot a second shot, this time finding the back of the net for the first Rage goal.

Rage mid-fielders Hunter Faria, Lauren Londono and Allison DeFazio demonstrated their possession skills by keeping the ball in the Northstars' half of the field until teammate Gabriella Smith, taking a shot from just outside the penalty area, scored Rage's second goal. The Northstars hustled the ball in the Rage half of the field, but Rage defenders Sarah McKeever, Emma Monsen, Ariyana Walling and Julianna Pereira proved to be impenetrable.

When the Northstars fired off a powerful shot in the 17th minute, Rage goalie Cierra Lofthouse-Wolf saved it. Jessica Stubbs and Ashley Lopez assisted by moving the ball back into Northstars' territory. In the 25th minute, Smith executed a textbook-perfect cross to Brooke Delaney, who was there to tap it in for Rage's third goal. In the 55th minute, Cierra, playing forward, crossed to Gabriella, who scored the fourth and final goal of the shutout game.
