TSR2015 Day 2 (LSL vs. Lanaudiere)

Match #2: #LSL v #LAN (lac st louis v lanaudiere)
Result: 1:0 #LSL

After match 1 there was a lot off buzz on the parents side over the selection of players for the PKs… speculation was rampant but in the end the 5 that were selected were selected and there was no real issue with it… personally knowing the players well I would have gone a different way but hey what the hell to each is own, no?.. I think the only surprise if anything was that the coach told the 5 they had to choose the order and what u ended up getting was 3 unsure players who didn’t want to be ‘that player’ and in the end emotions got the best of them. At the end of the day this PK result will be used as a tie breaker for placement if it comes to that and I can tell you it won’t.
Yesterday’s match was an earlier start; 9am.. #LSL started very slowly out of the gate.. slow paced.. do I dare say borderline boring…they looked lethargic.. late night and early morning does that to you. As was the case in the 2nd half of the first match… no scoring chances for #LSL whereas #LAN came close twice to scoring.. #LSL goalie coming up big with a little luck mixed in as well. #LSL did pick it up enough to generate one scoring chance which they made good on.. sometimes that’s all that is needed.. unlike the first match, tactically the coaches decided less is more and whereas all but one player saw the field game 1; 4 players did not see the field game 2 and I believe had there not been an injury I would say that number would be 5.

This #LSL team could easily be 0:2 but find themselves currently tied for 1st with Chaudière the team they face tomorrow, Friday July 31st… should be a dandy..

This team is kinda reminiscent of the Italian National teams of the past that were notorious for coming out slow during the group stage and then picking up steam as the tournament goes on.. 🙂

Looking forward to tomorrow’s match.
