Game 10

October 19th, 2014              

    Today's game marked the end of the Michigan Impact U14 White soccer season. Things were looking kind of iffy early on in this contest, as once again the girls got off to a slow start in a late day game. Thankfully the girls seemed to find themselves a bit as the game went on, and they wound up cruising to a 4-1 victory when the final whistle blew. Samantha played a pretty good game overall today, making some moves around some girls, battling for the ball in tight spaces, and taking her shots when the opportunities were there. Once again she sent a high kick towards the net, and it appeared for a second that the goalkeeper was going to bobble the ball and let it into the net, but unfortunately for Sam she found her grip on the ball and made the nice save.

    Today's victory moved the girls to 8-2 on the season, good for second place in their group (and just 3 points out of first place - one victory!). This is quite an improvement before the team's 3-5 record before Sam's arrival (as well as a couple of other girls... it isn't all just her!).
