A Few Steps Back Before the Next Step Forward.

We have been taking steps forward recently but took a few steps back today. We were unable to deal effectively with Park's attack and gave up fairly easy goals to fall to the Pirates 0-3. Started strong but then failed to mark central runs sufficiently on a cross and Park's Chapman had a free shot and she made no mistake. Ironically, their goal came minutes after our best opportunity where we chipped the ball over the defense to King who headed it over the keeper but hit the crossbar. Their other goals again capitalized on some of our silly mistakes. We have plenty of time to clean those up this week and we know what we need to do.

Part one of the CSM-Park battle went to Park. We get to see them again this Friday, same place, same time (Park's Julien Field, noon) for the MCAC Conference Championship Tournament. We are looking forward to seeing them again.
