MOST COMMENTED

[COLLEGE WOMEN]How does the NCAA Division I women's champion stackup against the pro champion of reigning Women's World Cup champion Japan? Very close. The Bruins fell to INAC Kobe Leonessa, champion of Japan's Nadeshiko League, 3-2, in the opening game of their Japanese tour.

The game was played in Okinawa and televised in Japan on BS Fuji. INAC Kobe is led by Homare Sawa, captain of Japan's 2011 Women's World Cup champion team and a former WUSA teammate of UCLA head coach Amanda Cromwell in WUSA.

In 2013, INAC Kobe Leonessa also won the Mobcast Cup, the unofficial women's world club championship.

The Bruins will play second division JFA Academy Fukushima on Wednesday in Shizuoka.
