Road Report: USWNT Victory Tour in San Antonio

Both of your Violet Crown Soccer correspondents made the trip down to San Antonio last Thursday to see the U.S. women’s national team on the Texas leg of their 2015 Victory Tour. Though we didn’t see the world cup trophy itself – thanks to the Alamodome’s goofy no re-entry policy – we did see: a lively American Outlaws tailgate & march, a Christen Press hat-trick, a six-zero final scoreline, and lots of enthusiastic USWNT fans. Below are a few pictures from a nice evening and a good, if lopsided, game.
