A Moral Victory

Tonight was the make up game from the rain out with Concord on Saturday and the weather was drastically different.  The rain clouds were gone from the weekend leaving a hot, sticky afternoon for soccer complete with bees nests on the score board and the dug out.  Despite the heat, bees and tough opponent the girls played well.  They had an opportunity to score early, but couldn't quite convert.  At the break the game was a close one with Concord leading 1-0.

The second half was much like the first.  Doug had to substitute more than normal because of the heat.  He had a lot of girls asking to come out and for the first time since he has been coaching the refs required a water break after 20 minutes of play.  In the end Concord was the winner on the books, but the Wawasee girls scored a moral victory.  It was the best that they have played against Concord in Doug's tenure and certainly was fun to watch.
