Game 5

October 5th, 2013              

    Today's game was a total stinker, from start to finish. The girls just didn't seem to be very interested in playing soccer today, and I don't really know why. Perhaps it was the long drive to the game (which for us was made even longer due to traffic issues, causing us to arrive after the game had started), or maybe it was the dreary weather, but whatever it was it seemed to affect the La Forza girls much more than the other team. I really don't have a lot to report about this game, as the girls were pretty much dominated from start to finish. Samantha played in the field for the first half (as I said, we were late, so someone else had to start in goal today) before moving into the net in the second half. While she made some saves, she also let in some goals that both Tara & I thought that she could have given more effort to try and stop. It wouldn't have mattered anyway, as the Rush team scored a goal as we were arriving, and it turns out that the one goal would have been enough to secure their team a victory. As it was, the final score wound up being 4-0, so all the other goals were just icing on the cake.
