Also the 2nd Gameday of the Lionjacks was in Kaiserslautern. They took their first game against Karlsruhe B/ Ulm. Both teams started strong and especially both defenses and goalies made it hard to score. So after 18 tough minutes #10 Lisa Noe took the first shot. Motivated by that first goal Lisa extends the lead of the Lionjacksacks by another goal. Prilly Oktoviany (#9) who played her first game after a long term injury shot the third goal for our ladies. Then our defense lost a bit of their focus and the guests from Karlsruhe scored twice in a short time interval. So for half time it was a close score of 4:2. In the second half both teams were competing evenly and very good defensive work on both sides made it possible that each team could only score one goal. (Congrats to #17 Cornelia Sorgatz who scored her first league goal this game). With a final score of 5:3 the Lionjacks were happy for their second victory of the season.
For the second game, which was against Stuttgart B/ Heilbronn, the girls kept their spirit. This showed right at the beginning that it’s going to be a tough game. With both teams fighting, the game was quite close. The half time score of 1:1 (#10) promised that it is going to be an exiting game until the end. However, many ball losses during the transitions have shown that the Lionjacks lost on focus and could not keep up the speed from the first game. This led to a domination of the guest team in our half of the field. A good defense and great goali (Jen Scribner #19) could prevent a higher score so at the end the lionjacks were defeated by 2:4. Even the second game was lost, both coaches were pleased with that gameday and can focus on what to work next.
Thanks to Karlruhe, Ulm, Stuttgart and Heilbronn for two exiting games. The next game will will be on 22nd of October in Freiburg.
