Like I said it my last post, it was a boring game, but an even one, I agree. I think our girls were feeling the pressure to win from the parents in that one. We were also guilty of banging the ball around and I don't like that at all. Yes, Ajax are similar, but they don't try to play like EG does, they just bang the ball forward. That is why we didn't do any play dates after the first one. The fields were like 55x35 and these teams were just blasting the ball long all game. It wasn't good soccer at all and it was a big waste of time. Teams playing to "win" the play date instead of using it for what it was intended for.
