Live Blog: Oakland Soul at Stockton Cargo

Hello and welcome to the blog’s first live coverage of Oakland Soul, coming to you from Stockton’s San Joaquin Delta College where Soul take on the Cargo.

In Bloom’s preview, he goes off making fun of Cargo’s logo. And I agree, I do not see a cargo ship in their logo.

You will just never get me to associate Stockton with big maritime shipping. Moreover, saying that the Stockton Blue is “inspired by the cities [sic] connection to the sea” is overdoing it with the maritime connection, right? Stockton is 55-ish miles from the nearest salt water. “The white in the Soul away kit represents the snow at Lake Tahoe, a thing many Oakland residents enjoy during the winter.”

Here is a list of Stockton’s player announcements prior to Saturday: Kassandra Ceja, F/M (Cal State Long Beach), Abigail Souza, CB (Nevada), Kaya Scott, M/F (Fresno State), Yareli Hernandez, FB (Delta College), Heather Tarabini, F/M (Sac State), Miette Sessoms, F (UC Riverside–commit), Niella Sessoms, D (UC Riverside–commit), Tiana Cello, M/F (SJ State).

Here is a list of Oakland’s announced players via its website:
