Brandeis Tournament 18apr2015

Clear skies, warm 60+F and a great fan base greeted us in Waltham, MA! Lindsay's grandparents Doug and Ginger (with a generous gift to the team -- thank you!), Lindsay's aunt and uncle, Julia's parents, Hannah's family with lunch provided to the whole team by her dad Joe, Christyn's folks with more lunch goodies!

Four half-hour games go by so quickly!

We spoke about making good passes, and we looked sharp versus Emmanuel! Shelby, Julia S and Claire got off shots before Claire converted in the 12th minute. Claire got off another shot right after that, and Nat had a chance in the 15th minute. Emmanuel only got off only three shots, but they put one into our net in the 22nd minute. 

Azzurri, a club team of former college players, always shows their skill and experience, so we were happy to see shots by Claire, Rose, Shelby and Julia before Azzurri could get off a shot in the 14 minute -- thankfully they were offsides and were not awarded a goal. Christine got her shot saved, and Hannah saved an Azzurri shot at the end of the game.

Bentley looked much improved from last year. They got off the first two shots before Claire's free kick and Rose's shot in the 5 minute. Hannah saved one of Bentley's shots before they scored in the lower left corner of our net in the 7th minute. Claire had another of her shots saved in the 10th minute, and Hannah made a huge save at her left upright in the 19th minute. Bentley fired a rocket of a shot into the upper right corner of our net in the 21st minute. Still working hard, after Caroline G's shot and Julia S's shot were saved, Christine put the ball into their net.

We usually play Brandeis last, but this time it was newcomer Babson, who looked strong and sharp with their passes. Claire and Julia S had shots saved, and Hannah saved a Babson shot early in the game. A questionable call gave Babson a free kick, that Hannah got her fingers on, but an aggressive Babson player stole the ball away to put it into our net in the 11th minute. Claire and Julia S had three more shots, and Babson had a shot over our crossbar before Elise made a huge save by blocking a Babson shot for a corner in the 22nd minute. Babson converted a penalty kick 4 minutes before time was up.

We felt humbled by playing varsity teams, but we did well to be competitive with these teams -- creating many chances and getting off good shots in every game!
