at UVM 8Nov09

Glorious sunny 60˚'s F weather for November! You came out solidly, connecting most of your passes, but UVM's high pressure made it hard for you to organize. When UVM got the ball they were quick to go forward and got off a half-dozen threatening shots, but all five in the first half were wide.

Late in the first half you got more organized in their third, and in the second half you were very energized and dangerous. In the 58th minute when they got a lucky break-away, Dani made an amazingly cat-like one-handed save to keep you in the game.

You kept working very hard, and it felt to me that you deserved to win, but I was worried that time would run out! Finally in the 86th minute, in heavy traffic, Courtney flicked the ball to Maggie who found Felds for the only goal of the game. What a great celebration you had! It was so great that you persevered!

at Harvard 31Oct09

The pressure was on you from the start, with the other Dartmouth soccer teams having just lost and this Harvard team pressing quickly. The new narrow turf field made play very congested, but your patience paid off, and your possession and percent passes connected both increased over the 90 minutes. They were pushy but that didn't bother you enough for you to respond negatively.

Your goals were memorable for their style/technique and beautiful build up! Learning that their keeper was good with ground shots, Maggie's shot from distance on a pass from Emily N late in the first half was perfectly aimed just over the keeper's hands. At half-time we spoke about more communication, quicker passes to feet, and taking more shots from distance. Early in the second half Emily N's beautifully planned header from Sarah's chipped pass just arched over the keeper's hands. Then soon after that Maggie set up Jenn for her powerful and low shot wide that gave their keeper no chance.

The wonderfully large fan base all complimented your skill, speed and cool organization. A prospective '14 from Dartmouth, MA, loved seeing you play and was very impressed, and you made for PROUD team alumnae: Kelly Hackett '09, Kim Rocio '08 and Jenny Fisher '08!!

Pounding rain and immense UVM pressure didn't deter you!

at St Anselm 18Oct09

First half your passing was clinical and you got almost every 50/50 ball.
Second half not as organized but still solid and able to score.
They were a better team than the last time we played them.
Impressive that you could play well in adverse weather with only two subs.

Middlebury 16Oct09

Very impressive recovery with even more tenacity than at Middlebury.
Passing in the 2nd half was clinical.
You learned from the flat passes in the 1st half.
Switches were wonderful.
Communication was more noticeable at the sideline.
You had over 3x as many shots!
Great possession in the 2nd half. Quicker.
Good hustle; maybe you were more fit than they?

at Holderness 14Oct09

They came out strong but you responded increasingly better.
Good give and go passes. Good hussle to 50/50's.
I thought we got better switching the ball across the field.
With better quality passes we could have connected more.

The goals were pretty GLORIOUS! Memorable!

Tufts 8Oct09

You gained more spark as you went along!
Tufts was better competition today than at their field.
You worked hard and got lots of chances.
I REALLY liked your passing and switching!
Looked like English Premier League!
You keep getting BETTER and BETTER!

Next focus: start quicker and communicate more

at Middlebury 3Oct09

Only a few teams are known for coming back after being scored on -- Manchester United and Brasil, to name a couple.
You knew you were playing well in the 1st half and you took your half-time advice -- to keep working hard.

You did all the things we worked on:
  • You completed more passes
  • You switched the ball more
  • Possession was much better: the ball was mostly in their half
  • More shots were on target
  • You were QUICKER and won the majority of 50/50 balls; you showed more stamina.
It was so much fun to watch! The other coach complimented your high quality. You SO deserved the WIN!

A couple ideas:
1 - when you get to their end line send the ball out to the 12 or 18 away from their GK
2 - outside midfielders get wider when it's our ball
3 - outside defenders make more runs forward to be more offensive

at Tufts 1Oct09

You got quicker, did some great switches and had much better possession. I was really impressed at your improvement from last Saturday!

You had LOTS of shots; now we need to get more of them on target. I also think we can improve our already-good quick passing.
