Danes Dominate But Manage Only a Tie
April 25, 2012Fountain Valley School
The Danes took the field to defend the home turf against a very tough league team, James Irwin.
Within 80 seconds of play, freshman forward Clare Hamilton (Colorado Springs) netted the ball put the FVS girls on top. The excited Dane girls played awesome the first half with great passing and work from everyone on the team. Unfortunately, they could not score again. The end of the first half was 1-1 because James Irwin scored on one of their few shots.
The defense continues to play incredibly. Led by Captain Emily Greenbaum (Colorado Springs), the backline kept the ball away from their keeper for most of the game. Emily is proving to be a strong defender for the Danes.
Midfielder Hannah Carrese (Colorado Springs) had another wonderful game and almost put the Danes ahead with a shot late in the game.
Everyone on the squad has been giving it their all and working very hard during games. Their only goal now is to make sure they PASS WITH A PURPOSE and not just kick the ball.
The game ended in a 1-1 tie with the FVS girls controlling most of the game. It was unlucky they couldn’t score a second goal. Now these two teams may tie for second in Region 1 standings. Hopefully, the Danes can win the tiebreaker.
