U10- Team 4 Maroon vs Team 3 Kelly

Team 4 Maroon 4 vs Team 3 Kelly 3

Kelly got a quick lead 0 to 3. After changing goalies and a halftime adjustment focused on positioning, pkaying outside and goalie handling Maroon rallied to 4 unanswered goals to win 4 to 3.

Both teams playing better in space could have turned this game either direction and will continue to reinforce playing proper sides, angles of the field as well as finding open space.
A marked improvement all around from game 1

Team 4 Maroon vs Team 8 Silver

Team 4 Maroon 0 vs Team 8 Silver 5

Good game by Silver. Getting ahead 4 goals in first half. Maroon managed to play better defensively, but getting my new players to understand positioning. Better second half by Maroon, but silver allowed very few shots and the kids should be proud.

We would all do well to remind our goalies not to set ball on ground after a save. Only on goal kicks.
We will see Silver 4 times so hopefully I fix things before then

U-17 Team 4 vs Team 2

Team 4 Royal 5 vs Team 2 Kelly 2

Coming off weeks of preseason preparation Kelly and Royal both came well prepared for tonight’s season opener.
Royals’s early offensive barage yielded no results and Kelly took the lead a little more than halfway through the first half bringing the rowdy crowd to their side.
It was only after the referees took control of the unruly crowd, Royal bounced back establishing a lead that it never lost although the crowd never left Kelly’s side
