On Thursday, the Lady Braves met with the Lady Sultans in an intense and competitive game.
The Lady Braves offense was rewarded with 2 penalty corners, but ultimately could not score against the Lady Sultans defending players.
Of the 15 Lady Sultan penalty corners against the Lady Braves, 2 ended as goals. With 4 goal keeper saves, the Lady Braves defense, led by goal keeper Marina Ybarra (’18), were able to defend against the other 13 penalty corners successfully.
One Lady Brave whose play and determination stood out during this match was Emily Lopez (’18). Emily could be seen running the ball down the sideline and making incredible passes, then could be seen defending in the midfield in order to keep the ball on the Lady Sultans’ half. For Emily’s play and improvement, she has been chosen as Player of the Game.
Keep checking back to see how the Lady Braves have improved as they enter the second half of their league season!
