Bay Area Soccer: SJ Quakes face busy schedule without Lima, NPSL / UPSL playoff push

And yes, there is something happening in France about now.  The US women begin play against Thailand on Tuesday.  These players have local Bay Area connections be past or present.  While there is no top flight team right now there are still clubs to support at various levels.  The women’s college game is still thriving from the likes of Stanford and Santa Clara, to the lower tier San Francisco Nighthawks. While we miss FC Gold Pride and hopefully await the next top flight team to play here, the game is still worth checking out.

In the meantime there is our Instagram and the recent game with the San Francisco Nighthawks. Of course, we pick the USA to win a fourth title and to repeat as champions.
