What a relief... the switch from Castro Valley HS Athletic Stadium to Pioner Stadium in Hayward, did not jinx the winning #1 team in the WPS! FC Gold Pride defeated the Boston Breakers 1-0 at their new home thanks to a score by Kelley... not me, Kelley O'Hara ;-)
At half time the owners came out and asked everyone to bring a friend to the next match, trying to boost ticket sales... in support, I can honestly tell you these games are exciting! Not to mention the local team is the #1 in the league, has 4 current and former US Women's National Team players and 6 current and former national team players from other countries, including FIFA player of the year the last 4 years, Marta!!! Tickets start at $12, for live entertainment!
Just before the second half, they recognized some of the girls father's on the field for Father's Day, pretty sweet and you know they must be so proud! It's great to see super supportive parents... I know a few ;-)
