Girls Varsity Field Hockey vs. Glenbard West - 9.6.17
LFA came out strong and had great ball control in the middle of the field for the first 15 minutes of play. Lena Ansari shut down their first of 4 total corner attempts which gave LFA some momentum. Unfortunately, once GBW put one past the keeper after 16 minutes of play, they quickly tallied another 2 goals. The girls regained their strength after a time-out and held the score to 0 - 3 in favor of GBW. In the second half, GBW was only awarded one corner. They did, however, score two quick goals. LFA was awarded four offensive corners which allowed Izzy Moody and Lena Ansari to record some good shots in the second half. Yvie Gerber, Isa Blankers and Carlee Wolters had a couple opportunities at the far right post while Suzie Newton held the middle field to put pressure on net. However, LFA was still unable to score, and at the end of 60 minutes, LFA lost 0-5. Despite the outcome, the girls played impressively against a very talented team.
