In a game that was rescheduled from a prior rain-out, the team (a combination of Red and Blue due to player availability) struggled. There was a mix up in scheduling and Carroll intended that we play 2 full games. With our reduced numbers (13 players) , we agreed to play 3 halves instead of 4. In the half against the Carroll 7th grade team, Isaac Lorenz was able to put in 2 goals to win the half 2-1. In the 2nd half against the Carroll 8th grade squad, they scored 4 goals. While there were several good opportunities for Mac, the ball would not find the net. In the 3rd and final 30 min against the 8th grade squad, Zach Sparks scored on an assist by Nolan Jones.
Main takeaways from this game was that we have to get better at striking the ball and running thru the ball in thick/long grass. The Carroll squad was clearly used to playing in tall grass and Mac is more familiar with playing on Turf. This has proven in multiple games to be something that challenges Mac teams.
The team falls to 10-3-1 on the season with 2 games remaining.
