Better

Filed under: Tigers — Lex @ 1:36 pm

The Tigers lost again yesterday, 7-4. But they played much better than they had a week ago, against a team substantially better than last week’s opponent, and the game was closer than the final score indicated.

Just for starters, the other team scored two goals on long, rolling breakaway kicks after a kickoff (the under-6 teams play without goalkeepers). Subtract those, and it was a closely contested 5-4 contest.

The Tigers as a team were faster this week, more aggressive toward the ball, better at passing and better at pulling the ball back. The two goals mentioned above notwithstanding, the game could’ve gone either way; indeed, the Tigers were threatening to score again when time ran out.

Victoria played very well and aggressively, making some excellent defensive stops. But she missed most of the second half after bending her right pinky back so badly it swelled. Still, she had a good time and is looking forward to next Saturday, which is the whole point.
