Florida Cup League Game #3

Jonesville Park Soccer Complex - Gainesville 1st Half 2nd Half Final
Florida Hawks FC 0 0 0
Florida Roots FC 1 1 0 2


Jayden and (some of) her Florida Hawks teammates made the drive to Gainesville this morning to take on the Florida Roots FC at the Jonesville Park Soccer Complex. For a while it appeared that despite making the long drive north that this game would not be played due to pouring rain, but the weather settled down enough to get the game in.

Jayden found herself on the sideline to start this afternoons game. The Hawks had some good looks at the Roots goal, but they weren't able to convert on any of their early chances. They nearly converted on their final shot before the water break, but it bounced off the crossbar and stayed out of the net. The Roots would score back to back goals on their next two shots, both coming on some slick passing plays down the right side of the field. The Hawks keeper did her best to make the stop, but came up short on both attempts. The teams would head into the first water break with the Hawks down 2-0. Jayden got onto the field when play resumed after the water break, and she handled herself decently during her time on the field. The Florida Roots squad managed three shots on goal during the remained of the opening half, but not were of the high quality opportunity. Jay would feel some pain in her knee and a burning sensation in both calves during her time on the field (likely due to overwork between club soccer and school flag football). The coach moved her to center forward for a while, but her team could not really maintain possession while she was at that spot on the field. The two teams would head to halftime with the Hawks down 2-0.

The Florida Roots team dominated the entire second half. They would get the only shots on goal this half, six of them in total, while the Hawks just couldn't get going on that end of the field. Jay wouldn't step foot on the field again in this game, despite asking to go in when one of her teammates had to come out injured. Unfortunately the 2-0 loss moved the Hawks to 1-2 in the Florida Cup Tournament.
