Hello again bloggers! I hope all you guys are enjoying the blog as much as we are! The game last night went well with us winning 3-1 against New Mexico AUFC. We scored two early goals in the first half. Other than our two goals in the first half we were on our heels and forced to play a lot of defense. At the start of the second half Katy Couperus hit a bullet that put us up 3-0. Not too long after that New Mexico was able to score to make it 3-1. Again, we were forced to play tough defense as New Mexico made a strong push to get back in the game. Our four defenders; Madi Ott, Kaelin Trippe, Taylor Nelson, and Ashley Evans, were vital to our win as they turned away every opportunity that New Mexico was able to create. Kaeli Schmidt came up with some big time saves as well. Although we didn’t play our best that win automatically put us into the quarterfinals on Friday.
Today, we have game against Legends from Southern California. They are currently ranked 1st in Region IV. If we win the game we will get first in our pool and will play a second place team from another pool. If we lose the game we will get the second seed in our pool and will play a first seed team from another pool. Tomorrow will be our day off before the quarters. Right now we are all hanging out watching TV and playing Mario getting focused for the game tonight at 7pm!
