Fall 2013 Game 2 versus West Deptford SC Wildcats

 Well it was yet another great day for soccer this weekend. It was cooler today than our last games, which was a welcome change.  The girls were up against the West Deptford SC Wildcats.  The history with of these two teams matches have usually resulted in a win for the BlueStorm. And today was no different. In the first half we had what I like to call a “mixed bag” for long stretches our girls watched the ball and won zero 50/50 balls and then suddenly they would switch gears and win all of them.  So if I had to classify the first half, I would use the word inconsistent.  At the end of the half it was 2-1 with the two goals scored for the BlueStorm, one by Kelsey and one by Sophia D.   

In the second half the girls came out to play more consistently and at full speed for the duration of the game. In the second half the girls conceded two goals but scored 3 additional.  We had some great glimpses of brilliance in-terms of give and goes and passing up the field. Our first touches and lack of confident passes seemed to keep us from maintaining possession during some critical moments, but the girls aggressive play helped make up for these break downs. Goals in the second half were scored by Kaylin, Jordan and Maddy. Kaylin’s goal was a beautiful 35 yrd blast that brushed the goalies hand  on the way into the goal. This was very reminiscent of the goal in last week’s game scored by Jillian. The remainder of our goals were worked tight into the six and finished the “hard way” for the goal, nice job girls.  

Props this week go out to Maya for some great defensive work in the second half. She shutdown the Wildcats ability on to advance the ball on numerous occasions and therefore denied them the opportunity to shoot. Props also go out to Lindsey who stepped it up this week and saved 8 of the 11 shots on goal. Great job you two keep up the good work, I’m sure your teammates appreciate your efforts.
