The U.S. Women’s soccer team trounced Chile last night 4–0 in San Jose in front of a boisterous Bay Area crowd. Fans and future female footballers alike got to cheer on (and maybe meet) their favorite players, including superstar Alex Morgan and hometown favorite (out of Menlo Park) Tierna Davidson.

This latest win maintains the squads streak of 21 undefeated matches ahead of the big World Cup qualifier early next month, which will hopefully situate the women on the world’s stage where the men were so noticeably absent this past summer.

Six Fifty photographer Adam Pardee put in the leg work last night to shoot every phase of the match, from the pre-game tailgate to post-victory autograph session. Take a look…..

Enthusiastic fans held up signs for their favorite player including crowd favorite, Alex Morgan. The Quadrini family pose for a photo on their way to their seats in Avaya Stadium.
