It was a long time coming; and we got better each game coming to this point of the season! Finally winning against what has to be the best Maplebrook team in their school’s history is an accomplishment!
With new coaching, and two very good international players, our cross town friends came into this game with an excellent chance of upsetting our young developing team! By stacking our defense, playing to our three strongest offensive players; and putting a couple of ‘red,white, and blue’ defenders in the face of their internationals for the whole game – we came up with the perfect game plan! Jackson and Jack effectively eliminated their best players, a six person defense did the rest – sending balls through to Jimmy, Chloe, and Mary. They responded with six goals!
Final score – Kildonan 6, Maplebrook 3!
A giant step forward, and as Coach Evans said afterwards – a step towards believing in ourselves!
