"Beaufort West is a little town of about 40,000 people about halfway between Johanesburg and Cape Town. It's really a rough place. We were told there was a lot of violence there, domestic and otherwise. Soccer seemed like a positive force because it gets the girls out of their homes. These girls were in a school league and they were playing during a school break."
