My record so far this season is nothing to rave about that is for sure. Course, I am at the mercy of the teams I am on. I played a decent game with Village Bike Shop in my first with them against a high powered offense in So What. They torched me for a goal real fast and I held them to a 2-0 lead at the end of one. We just didn’t have the horses to keep up with that team and it ended up being 7-1 at the end.
Last night, I had a solid game going in Bronze. My team led 6-2 at one point, but with only 2 subs the whole game, they were dead physically at the middle part of the game. I thought I played an awesome game, and I stopped a lot of shots. I still didn’t get the win as the other team rattled of 7 straight goals to win the game. Our defense just collapsed.
I realize I am at the mercy of my team’s defense and these losses so far are not a reflection upon me. I just need to keep playing well. If I can turn in an effort like I did in intermediate/advanced last night, I am going to be good to go.
