Game 1
 

Home Up


 

February 13th, 2016              

    Samantha and her Venice Falcons travel soccer teammates returned to the pitch after taking a hiatus for high school soccer. The game got off to a slow start for the girls today, as they looked to be a step slow and a bit out of sync. After going to halftime with a 0-0 score, things started to pick up in the second half. The Falcons got on the scoreboard first, grabbing an early goal and a 1-0 lead. The Fusion team had a chance to tie things up at one apiece, but the Venice keeper came up with a big save on a penalty kick to help keep the Falcons in front. Venice wound up with a penalty kick of their own moments later, and Sam stepped up to take the kick. She very nonchalantly sent the ball into the back of the net for a 2-0 lead. Before the game came to a close, the Falcons tacked on one more goal to seal the 3-0 victory over their neighbors down I-75 to the south, North Port. Way to re-start the season girls!

...and winding up...

...before sending the ball towards the goal...

...and watching as it very nearly wrapped around the pole and into the net before sailing out of bounds.

...and making contact with the ball...

...and gently kicking it on goal...

...and watching it get past the goalkeeper...

...and settle in to the back of the net.
