Sloppy Conditions, Mostly Clean Play

Playing on Farrell Field, we couldn't complain about turf conditions, even as a cold wind and rain kept us from feeling confident in our touches.
 
We knew Holderness would be tough. These two well-matched squads traded possessions quite a bit, even as I would have to give Proctor the nod for keeping the ball more in Holderness' half than they in ours. We executed some awesome passes, creating triangles and showing improvement in our touches. We moved more swiftly to goal and were crisper in our shooting. All this was more impressive given how wet everything was. 
 
Lily Krehbiel and Emma Harrell had outstanding games, largely as a function of hustle and field position. Morgan Hart Nibbrig continued to send balls up into Holderness' half, joined in the second half by Paige Makechnie, Delaney Young, and Cade Wiley. Olivia Ames opened with a goal from the right at minute 19:11. Lily scored the only goal of the second half to get us within a shot in of Holderness, who ended up taking the match 3-2. 
 
White Mountain comes to us Wednesday for our final home game before we take to the road for games at Brewster and then Holderness. A winning season is within our grasp, but only to the extent that we execute our plan and finish our shots.
