Game 4

May 10th, 2014              

    After telling the coach that she would play goal full time, Samantha got the opportunity to make good on that during today's game. She played pretty well in goal overall, despite giving up her first two goals of the year. The first goal that she allowed was pretty controversial, as the ball hit off the crossbar and headed straight down before Sam grabbed it. The referee told the girls to play on, but the associate referee (what I've always called the side judge) ruled it was a goal despite the fact that he wasn't anywhere near the end line to see if the ball ever crossed the line. Sam claimed that it never fully crossed, but there was nothing that could be done about. From a La Forza fans perspective it surely seemed as though the side judge had it out for us, as he made several highly questionable calls throughout the game. Sam made on big mistake later on, kicking a low ball out on a goal kick that went to an opposing player who promptly kicked the ball high in the air, over Sam's head, and into the net. Her mistake didn't cost the team, though, as they were unable to score once again to help support her. When the final whistle blew, the girls had lost by a score of 2-0.
