I was able to watch second half of the game this morning because that's where we struggle and lost game yesterday. First half was even game with limited chances for each team (few free kick for each team and some corner kicks). They had one good chance in the last minute of first half with breakaway but Luke made great save to keep 0-0 at the half.
Second half Ginga players look like they had been injected with steriods compere to our players. They look 3 times faster , beat us to the ball everywhere in the field and if wasn't for Luke and Brayden score should be much worst.
Ginga kick the ball forward 20 yards Heagan and Garret didn't communicate well enough instead controling the ball Haegen made short pass toward Garret that forward took the ball and dribble 40 - 50 yards than made pass to open player in front of goal who hit the post ball come back to the player that just run over 60 yards and he was able to kick ball between Brayden legs to score first goal. Both Garrett and Haegan should do better job running back to help out Braydon if htey did that they will probably not score gol. Other thing Haegan can do is kick ball out of play in the middle of the field if he felt pressured they will get throw in and score will be 0-0 still.
Evan should clear ball better than he did but after that we had 6 guys ball watching and Ginga players shooting at goal two times nobody wanted to block the second shot since we look so tired.
They played great ball thru our defense and Ginga player just was too fast for our defenders he had 1v1 with Luke and finish with easy goal.
Things we need to improve-
Keeping ball in our possesion for longer period of time- we run too much n first half because we couldn't make passes in the middle of the field - we couldn't find our forwards that often.
We need to be more dangerous going forward except 2-3 free kicks we had no oportunity to score any goals.
We need to get in better physical shape except 2-3 players rest of the guys are winded after 10 -15 minutes of the play.
Players need to adjust to play in multiple position on this team. If we have some players missing games they need to sacrface what they need / want for team success.
Soccer is team sport unless all players want to play for each other and do dirty work we will struglle to win any games.
Today will be recovery training for boys. We will play soccer tennis and 3v3 tournament with some scrimmage in the end.
Starting tomorrow we will prepare for Saturday game against Western Pioneers.
Monday 5-6:30pm I know some players will be late and some not coming do to middle school games
