a strange game

Our game against Pomfret was unexpected in the sense that they only brought eleven players. They did not have any subs and, to make things more interesting, during the warm-up time one of their players got injured, so they only had ten players. Therefore, we played a 10 vs. 10.
There is a maxim in soccer that says that soccer is better played with 10 players instead of 11. Whether that is true or not, we did play well. We were able to move the ball from side to side, make the field wide and attacking not only from the center but also from both sides. Kudos to Alyssa for her hat-trick and to all the team for a game well played.
