Last night we played our final pool play game against the #1 ranked team in the region and #2 in the nation, Legends Breakaway. We played hard the first half and finished the half 0-0. About half way through the second half forward Koree Willer scored off a perfect through ball from midfielder Lauren Roeling. After the goal was scored we shifted into defensive mode. Luckily, keeper Kaeli Schmidt came up with countless big saves to prevent a goal from Legends attackers. At the end of the game we were exhausted, but very excited to away with the win. The final was 1-0.
This morning we woke up around 7:30 AM adjusting our sleep schedules in order to wake up early for our 9:00 AM Quarter Final game tomorrow. After a quick breakfast the entire team headed down to the pool for some water volleyball, light swimming, and a few rides down the slide. We spent the rest of the day relaxing in the rooms, watching the Portugal vs. Czech Republic game, and playing some Mario. The majority of the team went to the mall for some shopping and then a team dinner at Olive Garden. We are very excited about the upcoming game and will update you with the final score as soon as possible.
