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!!
