Game #18

Venice High School - Venice 1st Half 2nd Half Final
Venice Indians 0 1    1 1 3
Lakewood Ranch Mustangs 0   1      1


Samantha and her Venice Indians teammates faced off against the Mustangs from Lakewood Ranch for the second time this season, following a 4-2 victory early in the season's opening game. The Indians were hoping for a similar outcome tonight.

Early on the game was dominated by the Indians, as they outshot the Mustangs 6-0 over the course of the first half. Unfortunately for the Venice players and fans, they weren't able to convert on any of those shots. The game would wind up at halftime tied 0-0.

Although it was the Mustangs that got their first shot on goal to start the second half, it was the Indians who converted on their first shot of the half, allowing them to grab a 1-0 lead. The Mustangs tied things up shortly after the Venice score, however, thanks to a penalty kick that they were able to convert into points. The Venice girls wouldn't let that unlucky break get to them though, as they fought back to reclaim the lead on their very next shot, which they would not relinquish. It took a while longer, but they were able to add on an insurance goal three-quarters of the way through the second half, sealing the Indians 15th win of the season, and keeping them undefeated. (I know what you are thinking... undefeated with 15 wins in game #18 - that can't be. Three games were cancelled over the course of the season for various reasons, and I refuse to renumber the games any longer!).
