A beautiful day in the 20's C/70's F at Sachem. We spoke about being quicker and more diagonal with passes and dribbles.
Middlebury came out fiesty and caught us with one early mistake, putting away the first goal. We had the most shots and were rewarded by a free kick after a tackle on Caroline in her burst into Middlebury's penalty box. Molly blasted a shot into the upper left corner, beating their GK.
At half-time we talked about being quicker and better organized in the back. We reminded ourselves to send passes on a diagonal. The team suggested subbing every 10 minutes rather than every 15 minutes.
In the second half we improved on our possession and ability to get into their third of the field. We had six or seven good scoring opportunities while Middlebury was not able to produce any that I noted. We got much better width and kept the ball in their third most of the time.
