Marco and Lars
Phil must have given the boys a pretty good half-time talk as they came out for the second half looking more ready to push back after having left the field at the end of the first half looking a bit resigned. Marin's new attitude helped, and we scored our first goal since Monday at 23:16! The whole team got a boost of energy from finally getting on the board, so much so that Lars actually fouled the right D up in the right corner. Here's evidence:
Marco had started the second half as the stopper, then subbed out. At this point, he came back in as center attacking mid. At 28:55, Skene got a yellow card, and Marin had a free kick from about twenty yards out. Goal! 3-2. We endured the last eleven minutes of the game as Skene frantically tried to equalize, but they didn't and . . . we won: final score 3-2! Here are the rest of the photos from this game:
The Lions Girls
Throughout the game was much more physical than the two previous games had been, and the Lions' defense did a great job holding back the Varmol offense, out running their attackers repeatedly. About ten minutes into the second half, the Lions scored again, bringing the score to 3-1. The Swedish team came back with another goal, but two minutes later, right before the final whistle, the Lions scored again, making the final score 4-2. All four goals were made by different players, making this a true team win.
Good night, and Go Lions!
