Amador grads face each other on the soccer field

St. Mary's vs. Cal Poly has familiar faces

The St. Mary's College vs. Cal Poly San Luis Obispo women's soccer game held at the Moraga campus last Sunday featured two players from Pleasanton -- one on each side.

Brooke Mayo, a sophomore at St. Mary's, graduated from Amador Valley High. She played her soccer only for the Pleasanton Rage Premier club program, where she was a starting defender and team captain, and helped the Pleasanton Rage play in the California Surf Cup five times.

She plays defense at St. Mary's and was in 17 games her first year with seven starts as an outside back and finished the season with one assist.

Cal Poly's Braelyn Fetsch, who plays centerback/defender, was a four-year letterwinner at Amador Valley High and was named three-time most valuable defensive player. She is a freshman at Cal Poly, majoring in kinesiology. She is the daughter of Darren and Celeste Fetsch.

The Gaels scored three goals in the first half, resulting in a 3-1 win over Cal Poly. The first goal came in the 16th minute, with the second goal coming just a minute later. The third goal came in the 33rd minute.

The Mustangs scored their goal late in the second half off a free kick from 20 yards out.

With the win, St. Mary's improves to 3-1-1 while Cal Poly drops to 3-3-0.

You think 1 v 1 is impressive (which it is), try the SDSU @ Santa Clara woman's game on October 2nd.

SDSU has 3 players from AVHS.

SC has 4 players from FHS.

Many, if not all, played on Rage too. Plus some of the players not from Pleasanton were on Pleasanton Rage as well.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
