Marissa's first game was against Sting. Three of the Sting girls had previously played with Marissa last year at FC Dallas. Their goalie was the girl who broke Marissa's arm last summer. Marissa's team drew first blood early in the first half. They held until late in the first half, when Sting Stung. In the second half, Marissa got a jump on their defender, but lost the ball to the evil Sting keeper. The Horns played tough until very late in the second half, when Hanna, one of the other girls that Marissa played with, put the ball in the net. Final Score - Horns 1, Sting -2.
We had to wait two hours for game 2, which was against Granbury United. The Horns jumped to a 1-0 lead early. And just as against Sting, they held that until late in the first half. It was tied 1-1 at the half. The Horns came out strong in the second half and went up 2-1, and then five minutes later added an insurance goal. Marissa played hard and was instrumental in several key attacks. Final Score was Horns 3, Granbury United 1.
Tomorrow Marissa will have two more games. The first one is against Andromeda (Logan's Club) and a team coached by Marissa's old FC Dallas coach. She will know several players on that team as well. Then they will play a second game against Texas Spirit. I'll take some photos tomorrow.
