Some very good moments of soccer sprinkled amidst some very disappointed moments of soccer. Especially defensively. Now, when I say defensively, I don't just mean the defenders...Still. This is typical for the first scrimmage. Even the year we had 3 games where we 10-0 scored teams, we lost this scrimmage 5-1. The good news is that the problems that led to the goals are usually easy to fix with some training.
So, we will use the film on this game to make us better and get ready for the REAL games that matter.
Excellent start to the season. Some real moments of very good soccer. Team defensive shape was very good compared to the scrimmage. We kept the ball well and were dangerous going forward. Good work boys. Now if it would just stop raining we could train some more and get even better!
Solid Win. We were excellent early. Could have been 4 or 5-0 at half easily. We took our foot off the gas for a while and started to make some poor decisions and lower our work rate. Let them back in the game a bit. We need to learn to put a team down when we have the advantage. Not let up.
Still, a good win with some nice goals.
