So I haven’t really made a post like this in a while but holy crap, this was probably one of the best Sundays in a while.
First, got to play two games. One was at 5 with the top tier team, got the call at ~4:15 and rushed out. Made it there for 10 minutes to change and for my mental prep time, I get nervous before games. It was against a team that usually played at my level (they move three up every indoor season) but it was tight. Maybe from before I use to think that my top tier team was amazing, but everyone was having an iffy game for some reason. Not horrible, but definitely not at the level I was use to seeing them play at. So we were up 1-0, they tied it up, got ahead and it was 2-1, then went down 3-2 and we tied it back up. And I got the last goal! :) We won it 4-3! It was a three-on-two break, the girl with the ball was on my right, one of the top goal scorers on the league on my left, the girl tried passing to the other girl, hit the heel of another and the ball just trickled to me and I tried slotting it. But it went in! I just kind of stood there watching. Then I was like…SWEET! But yeah, overall, I was never on when we got scored on which is one of my big goals whenever I’m playing up. And I also got an assist! Overall, probably a good game. Last like 1:30 left of the game, he called a midfielder off and then asked me to go on when there was another midfielder in front of me. So that was nice, I was just terrified that they were going to tie it up. My defensive game hasn’t been as good this season cause I just recently restarted playing it. Went from striker back down. Oh well. It was definitely fun and I’d love to play again!
Second game started at 7:15, not at the same center so right after the game, my mom and I went to go pick up a snack then headed off to my game. I counted 19, which meant pretty much a full bench (4-lines…which is almost unheard of for indoor, most play with 5 defenders, 6 mids and 2 strikers - but we play a different formation 2-1-2). So as my coach is reading off the lines, the first defensive line was two players, one that I would partner up with if my friend played mid that game, after that we just high-fived cause we knew that we were going to be playing together. Anyways, overall game was good, it ended 5-2. We were up for majority of the game, except when they tied 1-1. Weird since they were having a really good run against the top teams. But pleased that we were up. Kind of a weird game since they just collapsed when we had the ball. We almost played it like a power play.
Overall, definitely one of the best Sundays I have had. Two games, two wins. :)
