Great start to the spring season ladies! A 4-0 win over rivals, Big Apple! Abbi, in what seems to be a new tradition of being the Rovers’ opening scorer each season, got the team off to an early lead with a goal scored off a pass from Mo and slotted into the right hand corner of the cage. The second goal of the spring opener was scored by Jax, who slipped the ball past the Big Apple goalkeeper at a tight angle on the right hand side of the goal, off an assisted Allison. Jax then scored the Rovers’ third goal early in the second half, off a pass by Annie who had carried the ball down the right side of the field on a fast break in transition. The final goal of the game was scored by Andrea in a short corner play with assists by Allison and Jax. All in all, the Rovers’ first game of the Spring was a real team effort and everyone should be commended.
The team played with great chemistry and a focus on building the game with patience from the back field really paid off. The defensive unit did the team proud, with yet another shut out to add to their collection, and the midfielders controlled the space between the 25’s with great composure. It will be exciting to build off this momentum throughout the spring season. Great job everyone!
