RICHLAND, Wash.- Some local moms say they have a few good reasons to be soccer fans.

Richland High School Graduate Hope Solo helped win a game Wednesday sending her team into the World Cup Finals.

Meantime, some moms were watching their children play other games.

They say having a local athlete go on to compete on an international stage sends a good message to their daughters.

@"Look at where she's at now! And that would inspire my daughter to aspire for what she wants to do and that she has dreams that are endless," says Adria Bervew

"You could be playing here at Jason Lee Soccer Field when you're six years old and grow up and become a world class athlete. How awesome is that!?" says Dori Gilmour.

The moms say they're excited for the World Cup Finals Sunday.
