Our season opener proved to be challenging for reasons unrelated to the opponent. Our personnel took a major hit missing Gabby, Alyssa, Aurore for starters. Additionally, Maddie had a stomach issue, and Avery played on a sprained ankle without substitutes to give her a break.
Our team made no excuses, and never quit. Bailey and Lydia took turns in goal, others filled in spots that were unfamiliar, while still finding ways to possess the ball as much as possible.
Our new Gunners did great adjusting to the challenges. Ryan found a way to score a goal, Mollie kept her defensive duties sharp, and Andrea's relentless work rate added a much needed boost in midfield.
Marshfield took full advantage of the wounded Lady Gunners team, scoring at every opportunity for a final count of 7-1 in their favor. One can't help but wonder what the outcome would be with a full Gunners Squad.
Mollie, Ryan, Andrea all made a significant contributions to a new team they are still in the process of getting familiar with. The effort, hard work, desire to succeed was a great sign for this unit, who has yet to train outdoors.
Welcome aboard; you have limitless potential. We are happy you are a Lady Gunners!!!
