|Samantha and a mixture of Liverpool FC club mates travelled to
Traverse City for the Autumn Classic. Normally I would say
teammates, but this wasn't her normal 99/00 team as we were led to
believe. The team for this weekends tournament consisted of 5 girls
from the '02 LFC team, and several more girls from the 00/01 team
than usually play with the 99/00 team. Throwing all these girls
together made for a challenging weekend, as the majority of these
girls aren't used to playing together in any form. Despite these
challenges, the girls were prepared to give it their all in the top
Gold level of the tournament.
On to the game action... For the
first 30 minutes, the girls held their own against the host North
Storm team. They managed to keep the game scoreless, heading to
halftime at 0-0. Unfortunately the second half didn't go the way of
the LFC girls, as they surrendered two goals to fall behind 2-0.
Despite their comeback efforts, they weren't able to find the back
of the net to narrow the goal, and fell by that 2-0 score when the
final whistle blew.
