U12 Girls 1-1 vs MRO

DSC_9581bOn Sunday, Westmount played a home match versus Mount-Royal Outremont. The result was a 1-1- draw (0-0 halftime).

In the first half, we held strong in midfield, leading to several breakaways with great opportunities on goal. Unfortunately, we were unable to finish our chances.  Late in the first half MRO were awarded a penalty kick for a foul in the box. Emma, making her return after a two game absence, made a fantastic save on the PK and even covered up the rebound!

In the second half we conceded about midway through the half. We continued to press for the equalizer which finally arrived in the 50th minute when Charlotte scored on a breakaway as she fought off the challenges of two defenders and the goalie. There were several other opportunities at both ends of the field before the final whistle.We played with a depleted lineup, having 12 players dressed and only 2 outfield substitutes. The girls dug deep to find the strength and energy to keep going, especially in the midfield where Alexia, Maïté, and Charlotte had to cover a lot of ground.
