    The La Forza U13 girls played game #2 today, and did so in a steady rain in cool weather. For the second game in a row the girls played a strong, aggressive first half. They managed to take the early lead on a shot that probably should have been stopped, and they held on to that one goal lead into halftime. Coming out of half Samantha got a break from goal keeping duties, getting some time in at forward. She was on the field when her team scored again, giving them a 2-0 lead that seemed good enough to hold up for the rest of the game. Unfortunately after that particular shot when in, the La Forza girls seemed to coast a bit, and the opposition put a ton of shots on net for the rest of the game. They managed to get one past our substitute keeper, making the game 2-1. After that Sam was put back in goal for the remainder of the game. The girls held on to the 2-1 lead into the closing minutes, when a handball by our team inside the goalie box resulted in a penalty kick. Unfortunately Sam was unable to get to the shot on time, tying things up at 2 goals apiece. The La Forza girls got a boost of energy after that, but were unable to get another shot into the back of the net.

    So, for the second game in a row the girls had to settle for a 2-2 draw after leading the game 2-0. One day they will learn to hold on to these leads!
