Samantha's soccer game tonight was a rematch between
the Michigan Impact team and the AC Milan team that won the previous
game by a score of 5-2. Things weren't looking good for a different
outcome tonight, either, as the Milan team jumped out to an early
1-0 lead. The Impact girls refused to let that happen, however,
eventually netting the game tying goal later in the first half.
Despite both teams getting some good looks, the 1-1 score held into
halftime. The Milan team got on the scoreboard first again, retaking
the lead with another early goal in the second half. Once again, Sam
and her teammate's refused to let up, and knotted the game at 2
goals apiece later in the half. While it looked like this game would
end in a draw, it didn't end up that way, as the Milan team found
the back of the net to take the lead for the third time in the game,
and this time they wouldn't relinquish it. Despite a valiant effort,
they once again found themselves on the wrong end of the score, this
time suffering a 3-2 defeat.
