I had a much more successful season this year with MFA, than I did last year. In the 15-16 Match Fit season, I only had 2 goals and 7 assists. This season, I was grateful to be made a captain and I started every game but 1. I had 18 goals and 7 assists this season. I played left and right outside mid as well as forward and center mid. My goal each year is to improve over the last year, so I’m happy I accomplished my goal.
We ended our ECNL season in Chicago for playoffs, where we won 2 and lost 1. I had a lot of fun with my roommates. Even though we had a coaching change and new players come on the team, I was proud of what our team accomplished. I’m looking forward to a new season with my team!
The season ended on a high note when I got to participate in a week of training in Berlin followed by the Gothia Cup in Gothenburg, Sweden. Our team was made up of players from a few of our ECNL & NPL teams. Not many of us knew one another going in to the tournament. We surprised everyone when we made it into the semi-final game against a team from Spain. We were sad we lost in pk’s but happy we made it so far! The week before, we spent time in Berlin where we played three German teams. They were nice and it was a fun time.
Up next ~ The 2017 DHS season.
