Preseason Lessons...

A-B 1, FSU 1.
There are lessons to be learned from every match we play.  One of tonight's lessons was pretty clear - we did not have a good start and we're not really prepared to play the physical and athletic team that Alderson Broaddus was tonight.  They were able to disrupt our rhythm and force us into mistakes in the back and took a 1 goal lead as a result.  We increased the pace of our game and had a much better 2nd half as we created a few good chances but could only get one goal back on a terrific Heather Fleishell header.  Being prepared to play hard, especially at home, is a habit we must have as a team this year if we want to accomplish our goals.

A Good Preseason Result

FSU 2, Dickinson 0.
Over 3 30-minute periods at Dickinson College today, the Red Devils had lots of possession but could not score against a tough Frostburg defense in a preseason scrimmage in Carlisle, PA.  Amanda Wharton scored in the 2nd period after Adria Graham forced a turnover and put her into great space.  Wharton beat the keeper neatly and pushed the ball into an open net.  Lauren Russell also scored on a terrific individual effort as she corralled her own shot off the keeper and put the rebound in from a narrow angle.  Everyone on the roster put in a good shift today as we tried different combinations and continue to experiment with some new formations.  Our final scrimmage of the preseason will be on Saturday at home at 7pm...
