Featuring 12 players headed to Division I college programs, Pleasanton (Calif.) Foothill High School was one of the most heralded teams to ever come out of Northern California. The Falcons, who had given up only five goals in their first 21 games, were the heavy favorites to win California's North Coast Section 3A championship but lost to San Ramon Valley, 4-3, after giving up all four goals in the last 15 minutes of regulation and overtime.

Before more than 1,000 fans, San Ramon Valley overcame 2-0 and 3-1 deficits and a hat trick by Carlee Payne to win thanks to a tying goal by junior Grace Leer, who has orally committed to California, two minutes into stoppage time and Allie Begin's overtime goal, her second goal of the match.

For the fourth straight year, the Wolves won the NCS 3A after not being the No. 1 seed. Their motivation: According to the Tri-Valley Herald, SRV coach Mark Jones told his players he would take them to Disneyland on his own dime if they won.
