looking at 10 bodies for Louisville defense in box. Totally packing it.
Payne was not. Bogren was. Mark does not sub along the back line. I hope he has convinced Bogren to stick around b/c we lose MB and GC this year. Emily could also choose to leave if she wants.Were Newton and Bogren even present for the ND game? When will Payne be back?
Yes! lt was not a fluke win either. It's not like either team dominated, but when ClemsonWas the Clemson 3-0 win over UVA as surprising as it seems?
I thought so. Clemmons scored early and were in control from then on out. UVA depth seems to be an issue.Was the Clemson 3-0 win over UVA as surprising as it seems?
Yes we are going to face a lot of bunkering defenses. That said, this team has enough skill including at the wings to successfully attack those. If we played Louisville again we likely win three or four to nothing. Teams like UVA and North Carolina that don’t Bunker are going to risk some serious counter attack goals. Jody Brown and her exceptional speed and skill will really show well against teams like North Carolina and Virginia in my opinionDoes everyone think it's going to be another year (including the soon-to-be-approved spring season) of teams keeping all 11 inside their own 30 to neutralize our offensive plans?
I know it was 1-0, but there were a few shoulda been goals that the crossbar and a whiff canceled out. Just curious to see how we attack the soccer equivalent of the bear-front defense.
A very succinct and accurate summary of last year.Looking back the 2019 team gave up an exceptionally high 27 goals. On the offensive end they would pass 18-times and still not get off a shot.
It's only two games in but this year's team has a much better dynamic.
A very succinct and accurate summary of last year.
I had no clue that losing Kuikka would impact us that greatly. Add to that the rash of injuries and Gloriana's early departure, and were porous on defense and plodding on offense.
I agree. Not only was she smart with her angles, fast to the ball and aggressive, but she had her team mates backs and more than once got into an opposing player's face.I think people knew Kuikka was great....but even that understanding may of been an underestimate of her value to the program. She was really one of the all time greats.
I watched about 25 minutes of UVA vs VT last night.
Ugghh! VT was brave and played decent defense in the final third, but they lack quality in the midfield and up top. Their passing was high level high school at best.
UVA is experiencing injuries like we did the last couple of years. In addition to graduation losses, they have lost 3 key midfielders for an undetermined period of time.
I honestly believe we will smoke them.
The only thing that scares me about them is Ordonez and her heading prowess on crosses and set plays.
UNC is the only team that will challenge us IMO, unless you count bunkering as a challenge in which case several teams will challenge us.
Don't forget - I believe the NCAA will be a reduced number. If we don't win the ACC Tournament, we ill have to fight it our for an at large bid (although I see this team getting one easily).Maybe talking soccer will take my mind off the football team.
I'm anxious to see how good Stanford, UCLA and USC are.
Can't wait to see what a spring schedule looks like.
I actually believe we will finish the 8 games undefeated.
Playing UNC in the tourney will reveal just how good we are.
Actually I should have said, playing UNC will give us a glimpse.
Losing Wuben Moy and Russo really hurts them.
It could be that the ACC is just waaay down and the PAC is the power again
Hope we schedule UCLA and or USC/Stanford in the spring.
Let's see what the standard is.
Me too! Basically yes, players can be substituted with some limitations that I don't fully understand.Still learning soccer - could a new player not come on for Berkely?
The knee must have been bothering her, because she almost never leaves a game.Jaelin jumped high for the header following her injury. I took her exit after that to mean she was being taken out because the game is over and to rest her. I agree she is our most important player right now and we need her to make the best run we can.
