I do not usually write after games but I wanted to share our feelings of how proud Sarah and I were of how the girls played today. For the first time all season I saw kids marking up on defense and moving around on offense.
Leia- was in a open position for shooting and took some great shots. She hustled on middie and brought the ball down many times in the first half.
Tess- Stayed on her man when she was playing defense and was open all the time on offense
Lulu- Kicked it up a notch. used her speed to get ground balls, was open on attack and, found players to mark up on for defense. She got a stellar goal when she ran the crease at the end.
Kingston- had many amazing interceptions on middie, was open on attach and had some great shots. She was able to mark up on defense and find the open player.
Charlotte- was able to mark up on defense, and adjusted her body to the correct position when I said "Watch body position"
Carter- was open on attack and moved around the arc to get open
Hazel- hustled a great deal, saw open players to pass to and played very tight defense
Addie- had the game of her life. She was all over for defense, dropped to help get the players with the ball, had great defense positioning. She worked the ball around the crease on offense, made many great passes to open players.
Sierra- had an amazing game as well on middie. She played solid defense and adjusted her body to play defense. She saw many open players, made some great assists.
Penelope- was standing with me on sideline and said " you know, I would like to try goalie, my parents said I would be good at it.' So she went in second half at goalie and killed it." Way to go!
Caroline- had an amazing game as well with hard shots on goal, passing to the open player on offense. Her defense was rock solid. She had great body positioning and was able to adjust her body when I reminded her. She also crashed and helped her teammates when a girl was coming into score.
My favorite part of the game was when I looked at our defense and every girl was marking up and their bodies were in the right position. Fantastic Job Team Gold!
Have a great Mother's Day!
