MONDAY, SEPT. 12
This past weekend we had the opportunity to travel to Fort Worth, Texas, to play in the Horned Frog Invitational. We went into the weekend preparing for two tough matches against Northwestern State and Boston University.
Our weekend to Fort Worth started off great with a trip to the coolest restaurant ever, The Italian Inn. There were many reasons the team was excited to start of the weekend at the restaurant. First of all, it is under ground and you can write all over the walls. They also have people singing and dancing while you eat. It was a great atmosphere and, needless to say, we loved the food.
Our first game was against Northwestern State. We played great as we cruised to a 7-1 win. We had lots of people score and Anna Schuch got a hat trick. It was an exciting game to play in as it was good to see the team playing together and to have everything working.
On our day off, Saturday, we had a chance to relax, hang out as a team and watch tons of football. My roommate for the weekend was Jessica Hutton and she is one of the players on the team who loves football. We had so much fun watching football together as we watched games all day long. Saturday afternoon we went to Flower Mound to eat lunch at Kandyce Farr's uncle's house. We had some great food and watch more football as we just enjoyed the night together as a team.
Sunday we played Boston University and we did not play well. We lost 2-0 and we were not happy with the result. We know we are better than what we showed and we are working hard to get to where we need to be. This weekend is one of our toughest weekends this season, and we need to be prepared for it. We play SMU on Thursday and then get a chance to face one of the best teams in the nation, Portland on Sunday.
We appreciate everyone's support and we hope to see you out there this weekend. Thanks guys!!!
