While we are extremely pleased with the victory at Carleton yesterday, this is only 3 points of hopefully many this season. We need to keep our feet on the ground, and our heads on straight to prepare for a well-coached and organized Trent Excalibur visiting Richardson Stadium on Sunday at 3:15 p.m.
I give credit to Carleton. They were organized and strong defensively. We scored an early goal, which really lifted the boys to a new level, and they maintained a high level of play throughout the match. We played strong defensively across the pitch. Everyone bought into their defensive roles, and as a result, we were prepared to win first and second balls. We played with a level of determination and resiliency that can really be the identity of this team this season. We sacrificed ourselves, for the benefit of the team, and in doing so, were able to come home with a 2-0 victory. The full game report can be viewed at www.gogaelsgo.com/soccer-m.
Our next game is our home opener on Sunday vs. Trent University at 3:15 p.m. Homecoming takes place on Saturday, and we're looking forward to hosting our alumni that evening. Assistant Coach Mike Zanetti will be sending out an email shortly with event information and an itinerary for the day. We're hoping all of you can stick around and support the boys from the stands on Sunday!
Thank you for your continued support, and I look forward to seeing many of you on Saturday.
