CFCA coach Michael Breslin talked about his team’s recovery after trailing after 40 minutes. Ella John Dupree scored a hat trick in the second half.
“0-1 at the half,” noted Breslin. “A lot of opportunities that we failed to finish. We moved the ball well, but were still too timid coming in to win free balls.
“We played better in the second half. It was a physical match and the girls were much better about fighting to hold their space. Lexie (Crumley) equalized after getting the ball from Laney Avery. We took a 2-1 lead after Ella John Dupree scored on a penalty kick that came from a hand ball inside the 18.
“Lee Christian tied it at 2 after a scrum in front of our goal. EJ was awarded a second PK from yet another hand ball. The goalkeeper blocked the initial shot, but EJ wisely followed her shot and put the ball in. EJ then completed her hat trick by scoring an unassisted insurance goal.
“Defense was solid throughout the match. Jada Johnson saved a goal on a corner kick by clearing the ball from her position on the back post. Madeline Brocious saved another by acrobatically clearing the ball from an empty goal. Overall, I’m continuing to see improvement in all aspects of the game.”
