This report is nice but a mention of the Pleasanton girls' names (at least) and a photo would have been nice.

I watched this game. The RAGERs were so good. They gave away a bad goal in the first half, to Mustang. Then the RAGE turned it up, and complete enveloped their opponent. The RAGE first goal was very lucky, but deserved, maybe should not have counted (goalkeeper had the ball in her hands, and a very smart soccer player, nodded it out of the keepers hands, into the goal). The second goal was a thing of beauty. A great cross, to a player whose diving header solidified the game. I am not sure if the Mustang team, made it over the halfline during the second half. The RAGE defense was awesome, squash every attack in the opponents half of the field. What a great display of the "beautiful game". This team is so enjoyable watch.
