    Who is our preseason No. 1? The schools on Treat Blvd know how to win. While De La Salle is the Bay Area News Group’s top-ranked boys soccer team, defending North Coast Section Division I champion Carondelet has also been selected as the top team on the girls side. Standouts such as Lauren Kenney, who scored 10 goals for last year’s champions, and Riann Juroff are back for their senior seasons. St. Francis, which bowed out in the second round of the NorCal tournament, could also challenge for the top spot this season. Carondelet’s toughest competition in the NCS comes from its own division, where teams such as San Ramon Valley, Dublin, Monte Vista and Amador Valley all boast talented teams in the East Bay Athletic League. Mountain View and defending NorCal D-II champion Leigh should also be some of the better teams in the region. And of course, Archbishop Mitty could very well regain the form that made it a four-time CCS Open Division champions from 2018 to 2021.  Early-season storylines Carondelet and Monte Vista have alternated NCS D-I...
    Girls Soccer Lancaster 2, Minford 0 MINFORD — The Minford Lady Falcons fell for the first time in eight total matches this season, but they were at least competitive against a team two divisions larger. That would be the Lancaster Golden Gales of Division I, which invaded the Falcons’ Nest on Thursday —and escaped with a 2-0 non-league shutout. The loss dropped the Lady Falcons, following a pair of monumental one-point home wins over Rock Hill (7-6) and Wheelersburg (2-1), to 7-1-0. All three matches took place in the past week, as Minford made the most of what it had left in the proverbial tank. “I was proud of how our girls played against them, after having two physically and emotionally exhausting games in the last seven days. Lancaster is a fundamentally sound team. No errant passes, defensive errors, mishits…just strong technical and tactical play,” said Minford coach Shane Tieman. “It is good to play some games out of your weight class and see how you match up.” Minford goalkeeper Neveah Porter posted an impressive 17 saves, 10 more than...
    Minford Principal Jeff Pica was once the athletic director for the district and knows what goes into maintaining athletic fields. He can recall a soccer field with mud up to the knee and uneven divots that made for rough play. He was ecstatic last week, when the district cut the ribbon on a new field for boys and girls soccer. “The new soccer playing surface is amazing. It looks great and is an example of what happens when everyone pulls together,” Pica said. Just before the girls team brought home a win, a ribbon cutting was held, with a voice booming over the field, “In March, the soccer coaching staff had a vision to upgrade our field conditions for our student athletes. With the support of so many community members, businesses, parents, and school board, we have been able to complete this project in six short months.” The crowd collectively cheered on the new field and the ribbon was cut. Coach Shane Tieman, girls head coach, and Jacob Hackworth, boys head coach, are largely responsible for the field updates. Principal...
    LONDON (AP) — In soccer-mad England, which sees itself as the home of the world’s game, women and girls finally have a team full of heroes who look like them. Some 7,000 singing, dancing, flag-waving fans — many of them mothers and daughters — jammed into central London’s Trafalgar Square on Monday to celebrate England’s victory in the 2022 women’s European championship, the first major soccer victory by any England team in 56 years. The tournament, hosted by England and watched by record audiences on television and in stadiums across the country, was the culmination of years of investment in women’s soccer that organizers hope will spur more girls to play the game, which is known here as football. Madison Fullerd-Jones is already on board. The 9-year-old from Maidstone, southeast of London, got up early and came to the capital with her mother, aunt, two sisters and a cousin to celebrate with the Lionesses, as England’s soccer team is known. Wearing an England shirt and waving a flag bearing the national Cross of St. George, Madison said she...
    Woodside High soccer player Elise Evans was named the 2021-22 Gatorade California Girls Soccer Player of the Year Thursday. The senior forward was limited to 12 games this season but made a tremendous impact for Woodside (15-2-1) as she scored 18 goals and was credited with four assists for a Wildcats team that reached the CIF Section Open Division Quarterfinals. As a state award winner, Evans is now a finalist for the Gatorade National Girls Soccer Player of the Year, which will be announced later this month. The award recognizes athletic excellence, outstanding academic achievement and exemplary character on and off the field. Evans, the Woodside High student body president and president of the school’s Black Student Union, has quite a résumé. With a weighted 3.95 GPA and impressive on-field skills, Evans has signed a letter of intent to play at Stanford this fall where she’ll be a fifth-generation Stanford student-athlete.   “I chose Stanford because it provides the resources and environment to achieve all my goals on and off the field,” Evans said in a team press release on...
    COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (CBS4) – The U.S. Women’s National Team is getting ready to play Colombia on Saturday at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park. A couple of Coloradans on the team took some time on Tuesday to host a soccer clinic for a group of girls. Lindsey Horan from Golden and Mallory Pugh from Highlands Ranch teamed up with UCHealth to help 15 girls on the Colorado Rapids Youth Soccer Club. (credit: CBS) “I think it’s a great opportunity to meet my heroes and I want be like them someday. So I get to see what to do to get there,” said excited 12-year-old participant Sophie Lyons. She and other 12 and 13 year old girls got help with their soccer skills at the Hawkins Clinic in Englewood. “Actually being there, and connecting with them, I think it just makes a little bit more authentic and that they can just realize we’re just normal people and normal soccer players,” said Mallory Pugh. (credit: CBS) She and Horan will be joined by Sophia Smith and Jaelin Howell as the four Coloradans to...

    Girls No. 3 Leigh 1, No. 1 Granite Bay 0 Leigh won the California Interscholastic Federation Northern California Division II regional championship on the road Saturday over Granite Bay as UCLA-bound America Frias scored the only goal, five minutes into the game. “She’s a very good player, but what makes her great is that she makes her teammates around her better.” Leigh coach Nick Hatzke. Leigh made a 120-mile trip to the Sacramento area for the second time in three days. Both times resulted in a celebratory ride home.  “All the credit goes to the girls,” Hatzke said. “I think they’re really good players and some really good individuals and leaders.” Leigh finished 19-1-2. No. 1 Christopher 1, No. 2 Pioneer 0 In a matchup between teams from the Central Coast Section, Christopher came out on top to win the NorCal Division IV crown over Pioneer.

    LUCASVILLE — Quite blunt, high school soccer has been an entirely unique experience for Valley’s Lucie Ashkettle. But just think about it. It’s highly likely that Southeastern Ohio hasn’t seen a soccer standout quite like Lucie. And, although entirely subjective —one can easily state the case that Ashkettle is indeed the best girls soccer player, despite playing on a predominantly boys team, in all of Scioto County. Maybe, just maybe, most of SEO as well. Ashkettle completed her junior season this past fall —and after earning first-team all-Southeast District Division III GIRLS accolades as a sophomore, she made the BOYS all-Southeast District Division III list this season, as a second-teamer. Thus, that kept her from making all-Ohio by not officially being a first-team honoree, but often times those lists are deemed meaningless — or even imaginary. The truth is Ashkettle can flat out play —lighting up the boys pitch with girl power. She was a shoe-in selection for the Southern Ohio Conference Division I first-team unit, as the Indians swept their way to their first league championship since 2002. “I...
    It was a big "win" for the Afghan women’s youth development soccer team. The girls, many in their teens, plus coaches and family, 130 in all, arrived recently at a London-area airport. The girls are happy and grateful after their lives had been threatened by Afghanistan's new, harsh Taliban rulers, who oppose many freedoms and rights for women -- especially in sports. Former Afghan women’s soccer captain Khalida Popal was a key "player" in getting the girls and others out.      "Some of their family members were killed or taken by the Taliban," Popal said. "So the danger and distress was very high, and that’s why it was very important to move very fast to get them outside Afghanistan."   TALIBAN ACCUSED OF USING TRICKERY TO LOCATE EX-SECURITY FORCE MEMBERS TO KILL THEM   Former Afghanistan women's football captain Khalida Popal poses for a photographer at Farum Park stadion on Dec. 21, 2020.

    LISBON, Portugal (AP) — Girls from the Afghanistan national soccer team who were recently granted asylum in Portugal have had a surprise visit from the captain of the senior team. Farkhunda Muhtaj, a professional player who from her home in Canada spent weeks helping arrange their recent rescue from Afghanistan, flew into the Portuguese capital, Lisbon, for an emotional reunion with the girls’ team late Wednesday. As the sun set over the River Tagus, the girls aged 14-16 and their families gathered on the riverbank and hugged and kissed Muhtaj amid smiles and tears. “They have dedicated so much, they have been so resilient, and to finally see them in person has been so emotional because I knew how much they went through,” Muhtaj said. After the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, the girls and their families tried to leave their country. They feared how their lives might change under the Taliban — not only because women and girls are not allowed to play sports, but because they were advocates for girls and active members of their communities. What made...
    The girls on Afghanistan’s national soccer team were anxious. For weeks, they had been moving around the country, waiting for word that they could leave. One wants to be a doctor, another a movie producer, others engineers. All dream of growing up to be professional soccer players. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM Then the message finally came early Sunday: A charter flight would carry the girls and their families from Afghanistan — to where they didn't know. The buses that would take them to the airport were already on their way. "They left their homes and left everything behind," Farkhunda Muhtaj, the captain of the Afghanistan women’s national team who from her home in Canada had spent the last few weeks communicating with the girls and working to help arrange their rescue, told The Associated Press. "They can’t fathom that they’re out of Afghanistan." Since the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, the girls, ages 14-16, and their families, had been trying to leave, fearing what their lives might become like under the Taliban — not just because women...
    ARCADIA (KABC) -- It's no surprise that girls play football. But when Arcadia High School's football coach asked three sophomores to consider joining the team - it came as a bit of shock."I was kind of surprised and I didn't think he was being serious. I just thought it was a joke like why would you have girls on a football team?" said Victoria Kenworthy.Victoria Kenworthy, Morgan Zimmerman and Kayla Ibrahim are on their high school's soccer team. Their skill at kicking got them walk-on spots on the varsity team. That was the easy part."I don't know anything about football until now. So, I was like what am I even supposed to be doing? Like I didn't know there where kickers until I was one," said Kenworthy."It's really different than soccer. It's a lot bulkier and a lot more stuff and it smells really bad," said Zimmerman.Over the course of the summer the three trained with their new teammates who were still warming to the idea."It wasn't easy at first I guess a lot of them where iffy about it....
    'We need to do everything that we can to protect them, to get them to a safe situation.' They move from place to place at a moment's notice in a desperate bid to evade the Taliban — girls whose lives are in danger simply because they chose to play a sport they loved. An international effort to evacuate members of the Afghanistan national girls soccer team, along with dozens of family members and soccer federation staff, suffered a crushing setback last week after a suicide bombing at the Kabul airport killed 169 Afghans and 13 U.S. service members during a harrowing airlift. Now, frightened and desperate, the girls worry whether a far-flung coalition of former U.S. military and intelligence officials, congressmen, U.S. allies, humanitarian groups and the captain of the Afghanistan women's national team can get them and their loved ones to safety. "They're just unbelievable young ladies who should be playing in the backyard, playing on the swing set, playing with their friends, and here they're in a very...

    08/09/2021 at 8:02 PM CEST Donald Trump is the antagonistic figure in American women’s soccer. Despite the success of the national team, which won two World Cups in 2015 and 2019, the former president nor stop attacking a group that has already made history for being the first women’s team to win two consecutive world championships. After reaching the bronze medal in the Olympic Games, the former president of the United States released the following statement: “If our soccer team, headed by a radical group of left-wing maniacs, were not ‘woke’, they would have won the gold medal instead of bronze, “he wrote. ‘Woke ‘means you lose, everything that is’ woke’ does badly, and our football team has certainly done badly “he added. However, the criticism of the national team did not remain here. He focused on Rapinoe, with whom he has had a tough fight for two years: “The purple haired woman played terribly and spends too much time thinking about radical left politics and not doing her job!“, he concluded. ...
    KENNEDALE, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – The Kennedale soccer team had a very unique season. One in which they definitely stood out from the rest. READ MORE: 7 Collin County Jail Employees On Administrative Leave Following In-Custody Death Of Man Arrested For Marijuana Possession Boys Head Soccer Coach Heath Wakeland says, “I had no doubt they were gonna be able to hang.” Coach Wakeland wasn’t referring to his guys.

With Covid-19 limiting the number of young ladies who wanted to play soccer this season and falling short of the UIL required 7 players to field a team, it was suit up with the guys or not at all.

It's a soccer program that focuses on teaching girls life and soccer skills through healthy competition.

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Conditioning for Taylor Allderdice’s girls soccer team is canceled for two weeks after a player tested positive for coronavirus.

    A college athlete-driven fundraiser in California raised nearly $80,000 for Black Lives Matter earlier this month. The premise of the fundraiser was simple: Athletes around the country would walk, run, bike or swim 8.46 miles to signify the 8 minutes, 46 seconds in which a Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin kneeled on the neck of George Floyd last month, killing him. Blake girls soccer coach Kelsey Hans caught wind of the fundraiser when the UCLA women’s soccer program announced it was joining the effort. Hans immediately thought to ask her team’s captains — Amelia Reyes, Cate Moe, Bailey Abraham and Rachel Winkey — if they would like to do something similar. They were in. “We went from there pretty quickly,” Reyes said. The team decided to do 8.46 miles Wednesday — by walking, running, biking or swimming — with a goal of raising at least $8,460. They had nearly hit the $5,000 by mid-Tuesday afternoon. While Hans sprouted the idea and helped set up the GoFundMe page, her players have since taken the reins. ...
