Game 1
 

Home Up


 

    The morning weather wasn't the most cooperative for the first game for the La Forza White Ice girls, but the action was still impressive. The first half was a struggle, as the wind was at the back of the Livonia Lightning goaltender, allowing her to continually outkick the La Forza defense. It was this play that allowed the Lightning to jump out to the early lead over the Ice, and almost allowed them to expand their one goal lead further. Thankfully some spectacular play by the Ice goal keeper kept the deficit from growing. Samantha and the rest of her teammates seemed to really struggle in the first half... it shouldn't be due to unfamiliarity, as they just finished their undefeated indoor season, easily outscoring the opposition. Thankfully the sun began to shine a little brighter in the second half, and that seemed to wake up the girls. They came out really aggressively after halftime, dominating play by keeping the ball in their of the field for a majority of the half. They also managed to score two quick goals at the start of the half, a lead that they refused to relinquish. Sam didn't score either of the goals, but like the rest of her teammates was much more aggressive. That style of play resulted in a couple of shots on goals, one of which would have been a sure goal had it not been for a great play by one of the Lightning defenders, knocking the ball away from the goal at the last minute. Since the ball stayed in their offensive end for most of the half, the Ice goal keeper didn't have to do too much in the second half. Without much of a threat, the girls hung on for a 2-1 victory, their first of the Spring season. Go La Forza!
