We had our first rematch of the season this week, meeting for the second time with DV8 who handed us our first loss a couple of months ago. They went ahead first, but we responded with 2 goals to go ahead in the second half. Unfortunately the luck and the wind was on their side as they were able to tie up the game on a fluke shot off the inside of the post. We played hard but were unable to regain the lead, ending the game tied up.
Overall it was a good effort, but we still need to work on being first to the ball, especially on the midfield and forward lines. We need to come back to get the balls that are cleared by the defenders, in order to prevent them from simply shooting the ball back into our zone. Further, once we do clear, we need to bring up the defensive and midfield lines, pulling them out of our zone and moving forward to support the forwards. Lets work towards our first win next week!
Special thanks to Karen who helped us out with a goal and an assist this week.
