Game 3

Home Up


April 24th, 2016              

    Samantha has been playing with the U18 team during their trip to the State Cup tournament, and they came into today's game know what they needed a victory to secure their spot in the next round. After playing the #5 team in the state in an extremely close game yesterday, the girls knew that they had it in them to do what was needed today. Thankfully they came out fired up and ready to play. The girls maintained possession of the ball for the majority of the game, and were able to find the back of the net late in the first half to take a 1-0 lead into halftime.  They maintained their intensity in the second half, and found the back of the net once more to grab a 2-0 lead. Although the Clay County team did their best to battle back, the Falcons held strong and kept them from reaching the back of the net, winning the game 2-0 and securing their spot in the State Cup Sweet Sixteen. Way to go girls!

...and lining up a kick...

...and contacting the ball...

...but not getting as much on it as she wanted, as the ball rolled to the keeper slower than she would have liked.
