OK Cougars, not a great start to the season if you are basing greatness on our win/loss record. We lost to Duchesne, 1-3. We lost to Bellevue West, 1-3. (Is there an echo in here? Is there an echo...?)
The games were similar in score only. Our performance in the BW game was far superior to our first game. In terms of effort, hard work and intensity, we played great in that second game. The score difference comes down to two things: not taking advantage of some fantastic scoring opportunities and making silly mistakes defensively.
So far our goals have been scored by Zenovia and Julie. Both goals scored because they pounced on a mistake by the opponent. Well done girls!
One thing I really want to improve upon is our team's defensive mentality. I want to be a team that is difficult to score upon. I want a team that our opponents have to sweat blood and bullets, work extremely hard and be very, very skillful in order to on us. We were not there this past week. We will get there.
We play at Central this Saturday, March 26th at 1:00 pm. I anticipate it to be very cold because I don't think we have ever played Central when the weather has been warm. Be there and bring a blanket.
