|Samantha and her FC Sarasota teammates had an unusual weeknight
game tonight, as they had to travel to the Tampa area to take on the
Lady Rangers. The Sarasota girls would score early to grab a 1-0
lead, and this game looked as though it might be a blowout. The
Rangers goalkeeper didn't let the early goal get her down though, as
she came up with some big saves to keep her team in it as they
struggled to create offense. Despite pounding the goalie with shots,
the Sarasota girls would go into halftime only up by a 1-0 margin.
The Sarasota squad kept up their attack in the second half, only now
they were making their shots count. They would score on their first
two shots, giving them a 3-0 lead. They would keep attacking, adding
on more goals as time passed. They would have a 6-0 lead when their
4+ game shutout streak would come to an end, as the Rangers finally
snuck a shot past a Sarasota keeper. Sarasota would answer back with
a goal off of a header a short time later, though, and they would be
how the game would end, with a 7-1 FC victory.
