It was a tough loss for the U.S. Women's Soccer Team in the World Cup Final Sunday. Japan managed to pull out the win after the game ended in penalty kicks after a 2-2 tie. Mountain View senior Madison Shore, who plays on the new Women's Premier Soccer League team in Bend says despite the loss, the showing was a plus for the sport. “Well, it was great for women's soccer. I know a lot of people who usually don't watch and follow soccer, did. It was an honor for the U.S. to get to the Finals.” The last time the U.S. women were in the World Cup Final was 1999, when they won.
