Phoenix vs SCSA ONE7 (NC)
With the weather being chilly and raining at times, the Phoenix took charge of the game early as we scored two quick goals in the first 15 minutes of the first game. The girls were trying hard to stick to our routine, which is trying to move the ball around. They executed that beautifully in the second half as they moved the ball nicely. I heard Angela H. shouting "lets pass the ball around girls". I was happy with the way they combined some of the passes. At times they seemed very comfortable at the back to pass the ball around even though the field was wet and bouncy at times. We were happy to come out with a win. The team we played against did a very good job by not giving up. They had a lot of speed and they managed to beat us to a lot of first time balls. The quicker you get to the ball, the better it is because you will have possession of the ball and then you can do whatever with it. See if you don't have possession of the ball then you need to run around and try to win the ball back, and guess what, that's not FUN.
All in all,the girls did a great job by coming out with a win. Well done Phoenix.
