On a chilly, wet night in Constantine the Falcon ladies prepared for their first home game of the season. They welcomed neighbor Bronson to their field in front of quite a home fan base.
The first 15 minutes were engaging on both ends with Bronson putting up quite a battle on controlling the ball. The Viking GK denied the first 7 shot attempts from the Falcons before the first one got through. K. Roberts finally found her touch in the 17th minute which helped the team reset on the field. There was a lot of substitution on both sides of the field which kept the game pace fast.
The Falcons got caught in a lot of offensive attacks when they got closed in by the invasive Viking defense. Trying to keep the possession of the ball was successful for the Falcon team until one too many touches caused turnovers and the Vikings capitalized as much as they could. At the close of the half the Falcons led 2-0.
Coming out the second half with a new game plan and some strategy the Constantine team was quickly able to capitalize on their speed and passing skills. There were 4 goals in the first 15 minutes of the second, 2 from K. Roberts, a second from Leah Dumm, and a season first for M. Moore. The attacks were all possible by implementing self-less play and quick decision making from the team starting from our d-line. A.Herlein and A. Walker both contributed greatly to getting control of the ball and starting offensive attacks.
For the first time in Falcon Soccer history the game ended early due to a Mercy-Rule effect in the 65th minute. The Constantine Falcons were on the scoreboard 8-0 in a victory.
