Cincinnati Friendlies

Posted by

Some of our '06 & '05 girls traveled down to Cincinnati for 3 friendly games against Nationally ranked teams.  The competition was CUP North (#3), TFA Elite (#11), and Century Gold (#57).

The first day saw the girls beat TFA Elite 5-3 and then hold on for a 2-1 win against CUP North a mere five hours later.  This is the only game we saw on their record where CUP North was held to 1 goal when playing in the 2005 age group.  Their average over the last thirty 2005 age group games is 6.033 per game.  This was a very big win.

The euphoria after the Saturday wins was very high.  Everyone relaxed and everyone lost focus on the one remaining game.

The game against Century Gold on Sunday ended in a 2-1 loss.  This was the first time that our '05 girls team was held to 1 goal for the first time.  Ever.

The end result was a great weekend.  The girls gained some very serious confidence by beating two very good teams back to back.  The girls then learned just how vulnerable EVERY team is when they are not mentally prepared for any given game.
