It all ended in a shoot out – and I missed.
After a loss to Bethesda, we battled back as the wildcard in the semi-finals, beating NJ Crush Tsunami 3-0. I was able to put one in to put us up 1 against PA Classics in the final, but a goal from them late in the game put us into overtime. After a scoreless overtime, we headed into the dreaded shoot out.
I send pk’s to the back of the net all the time, but not this time. Disappointed, I felt I let my team down. But I was reminded that even the best miss sometimes, and I have many more games to look forward to, like my first state cup this weekend!
Here are the game results:
- Game 1 – v. XTreme Select FC. 5-0 Win (2 goals.)
- Game 2 – v. Ukrainian Nationals Blasters Black. 5-1 Win (1 goal, 1 assist.)
- Game 3 – v. Bethesda SC Academy 01 Blue. 0-2 Loss.
- Semi Final – v. NJ Crush FC Tsunami. 3-0 Win (2 goals.)
- Final – v. PA Classics Academy 01. 1-1 before heading into the shootout (1 goal). We lost 5-3 in pk’s.
Tough loss, but next up – the NYW State Cup, May 30-31 in Cortland, NY.
