Since my last post, we have lost some of our games. Although we lost them, they were still very hard-fought battles. We lost an important player on our team due to a school change. Justina Germano transfered to Cushing Academy. This had been a hard change for us.
After coming off a 4-0 win over Medway with Justina, we couldn't piece together the parts that we needed to beat King Phillip. We had a penalty stroke which Kerri Harrington connected to put us ahead. But KP answered with three quick goals of its own. It was a hard-fought contest, but KP prevailed in the end.
Next game we played Tri-Valley league opponent Medfield. We also lost to them 3-0. We had the momentum to beat them throughout most of the first and second half, but just couldn't make it up into the circle to score. This game we played with a new formation and it really didn't work, so we changed back. We still all played hard and tried to do what we had to. We put forth our best effort.
Our most recent game was against league rival Dover-Sherborn. This game just happened on Oct. 1 and it was a weird match. We were in the game the whole time until there was 12 minutes left. Then the ref saw a strike of lightening. So we had to go inside and wait 20 minutes to see if we could play again. Even if we didn't, we could have called it at tie because we played the first half already so we had an official game played. The refs decided that the game would go on and we resumed play. D-S scored two goals in that 12 minutes that we were back on the field. We had the momentum to score. We had many chances with one goal getting called back because no one touched it inside the circle. You just don't know whats going to happen in 12 minutes.
So that's how our last couple of games went down. We are back again vs. Ashland in our second half of the season on Friday at 6:30 at Flahive Field in Westwood. We hope to win this game and get more points towards the postseason tournament.
Keep up the good work girls. We got this. Keep your heads up!
FIGHT, SCORE, WIN, WESTWOOD!
