Rowdies take top spot in Sonoma Tournament
The U14 Pleasanton Rowdies captured first place last weekend at the Sonoma Honey Invitational Soccer Tournament. The Rowdies won all four matches against teams from San Jose, Rancho Cordova and a pair of teams from Sonoma. In the Championship Game, Goalkeeper Siena Moca led the Rowdies to a 2-0 shutout victory over the Sonoma Challenge, which was the only other previously undefeated team in the tournament. Offensively, the Rowdies scored 10 goals throughout the tournament, led by Megan Cavanaugh, Rachael Butler and Haley Isaacs. Defensively, the Rowdies limited their opponents to only 3 goals, with outstanding defensive play from Nicole Dantzig, Lauren Chew and Jessie Granucci.
