Coach Rachelle said of her U10 Red Team today:
“We started off the game with some heavy hearts after last night’s result and played in freezing temperatures.
We played a really good side who gave us a challenge and something to learn from them.
Heads were down after the result in the first quarter but the team’s performance improved in the second and third quarters where they were able to return the challenge to the opposition and battle it out for the rest of the game.
POTM – Louis. He was upset after the first quarter with not being able to do what he wanted with the ball but after playing a quarter in goal and making some fantastic saves, he came back outfield for the second half of the game with a more positive and focused mindset. This shift lead him to stay mentally strong and his performance noticeably improved as a result. It was a great demonstration of resilience 👏🏻
Also, thank you to Aaban, James, and Louis for stepping in as goalkeepers today.
Thank you to LUCA FC & Academy for making the journey down here despite the cold conditions!”
