Game 8

October 7th, 2013              

    Since I was unable to attend the Bronchos victory on September 25th, I have never had the chance to see the team play really well together as a whole. Tonight was one of those nights where everything seemed to click for them. Despite ultimately losing the game 2-0, the Bronchos played hard, passed, and really gave it their all. Even the two goals allowed were a little on the flukey side, as the goal keeper was in position and the Lapeer East team managed to deflect the shot just slightly right in front of him. Tyler managed to dribble the ball a little tonight, and he did a good job pressuring the opposing players when they had the ball. He had a supreme scoring opportunity staring him in the face, as he and a defender raced after the ball. Unfortunately the defender got their a couple of steps before Tyler did, booting it right into Tyler's midsection (or slightly lower...). Tyler crumpled to the ground and had to come out of the game while he recovered for a while. Had he won that battle, he almost certainly would have scored. Bummer for him...

    Only two more games remaining in the season. Let's go Bronchos!
