Gasparilla Cup Game #1

Ed Radice Sports Complex - Tampa 1st Half 2nd Half Final
Florida Hawks FC U16-2 0 0 0
Florida Premier FC CP MIT Sirens 0 1 1


Jayden and her Florida Hawks FC teammates played in their first tournament together, as they got a chance to take on the Florida Premier FC MIT Sirens in the Gasparilla Cup in Tampa.

Things didn't start out well for them, though, as they were severely out shot in the first half of action. They never really put up much of an attack early on, as they didn't get a shot on net until after the water break. Shots were 4-0 going into that break, but the Hawks settled down and it evened out a bit in the latter part of the first half. Neither team was able to get a shot past the other team's goalkeeper, so we headed into halftime tied 0-0.

It didn't take long for the Premier squad to get on board in the second half, however, as they were able to make a nice move along the endline that resulted in a high kick that found its way into the back of the Hawks net. I'm not sure if the goal deflated the Hawks players a bit, but they didn't get a shot on goal of their own until the half was nearly over. They didn't look as though they had given up by any means, but they weren't able to sustain an attack long enough to get a shot on goal. They were out shot 7-1 in the second half alone, but aside from that one goal their keeper was good enough to keep the score at 1-0 as the final whistle blew.

Get 'em next game Hawks!
