Day 121 – The Strikers

Posted in Landscapes, People by Dave on May 1, 2010

The Strikers are playing really well these days.  Today was tough and we played a big, physical team.  The girls were intimidated in the beginning of the game and were really getting pushed around. Except Ally. She doesn’t let anyone push her around. She was mixing it up with girls who are literally twice her size.

We gave up an early goal. Ten minutes later, they scored another on us. After their second goal, Katie took the kickoff and dribbled around their entire team and drilled one in the goal. 2-1.  A couple of minutes later, she dribbled around 3 players and did it again. 2-2. Halftime.

In the second half we took over and our speed and conditioning won out. We ended up winning 4-3 for our 4th consecutive win. It’s really fun to see the kids put into play what we’ve practiced.
