Score!

Illustration for article titled Score!

In a story about L.A.-based Guatemalan women passionate about soccer, Molly Hennessy-Fiske writes: "During the week, [sisters Francisca, Elda and Celestina Lopez] spend their days like scores of other illegal immigrant women in Los Angeles: Wedged behind Singer sewing machines… But on the weekends they play a game that was off-limits to them in Guatemala. It is on the soccer fields that the Lopez sisters feel like American women." When Celestina - a 40-year-old mother of two - first put on a pair of cleats, she felt "like a cow in shoes." Now she coaches her sisters (34 and 30), telling them: "Be like the men - aggressive." [LA Times]
