Development Player League Game #16

Bomberos Field Park, Orlando 1st Half 2nd Half Final
Florida Hawks FC 0 0 0
Orlando City Soccer School - Lake Nona 0 1 1 2


Jayden and 10 of her remaining teammates made the drive to Orlando this morning to take on the Orlando City Soccer School in what would turn out to be their final game of the season. There really isn't much to report on about this contest, as the two teams would battle to a scoreless first half. The Hawks would struggle to generate much offense, as would be expected seeing as they were so shorthanded to start the game, while the Orlando City squad would control the ball for the majority of the half. They would outshoot the Hawks by an eight to two margin.

The second half appeared to be heading in the same direction, as both sides remained scoreless going into the first water break. Once again the Orlando City team would outshoot the Hawks, but strong goalkeeping would keep them in the game. Unfortunately the time following the final water break saw some extremely questionable calls go the way of the Orlando team, and as a result of those calls they were rewarded with two penalty kicks. As one would expect, they converted on both. That would be it for scoring - those two questionable goals resulted in a 2-0 loss for the Hawks, though I can comfortably say that in my mind this was a 0-0 game until the end.

Just like that, the season is over, and it appears that Jayden has decided that her time with the Florida Hawks FC will be coming to an end as well. Here's to better things in the fall, potentially with a new team!
