    Today the Venice Indians finally got to step on the field for their first game of the season, taking on Manatee High School. Samantha started the game playing forward wing, playing a strong game. She was quick and made good plays to her teammates. The overall game was quick and and the play was aggressive, but Venice managed to get the first score. What seemed like moments later Venice scored again to take a 2-0 lead. As the game continued, the field lights shut down and we were left in the dark. After a 15 minute game delay the lights came back on, but Manatee scored to narrow the lead to 2-1. Moments later the lights went out again and parents from both sides started to become frustrated. Once they had the game back underway, Manatee managed to score on us once again, making it a 2-2 tie. In the second half of the game, the girls continued to fight for the win and squeaked in another goal. With a 3-2 lead things were looking much better, with the light situation behind us and Manatee's momentum dying a bit, the girls maintained control of the ball, dominating on their end of the field. Manatee had control in their end of the field, but just when it seemed like Venice regained the ball an unlucky bounce of the ball off of Sam's knee wound up giving Manatee the advantage and a goal, bringing the score to a 3-3 tie. Our girls were doing their best to regain the lead when the lights went once again, causing the referees to call the game. Although this wasn't a league game, the girls played well and managed to run parallel with Manatee.
