Gann got the win in a key conference match up today. The game was very even to start as both teams played clean scored with accurate short passing. Gann's junk defense was key as we went on a 7 point run when we started to implement the defense and CSW struggled to figure it out. Good game all around to secure another key win.
Today gann went to one of our favorite away venues, the peacefull and bucolic fields behind Concord Academy. The game was hard thought as wind made scoring difficult and both teams had a rely on their ace handlers to move the disc. Concord took a small but signifigant lead just before half at 8-6. Gann regrouped and charged back wining 10-8 on time. The Micah - Teddy deep combination was key for us taking the win and Ari Rappalino had the catch of the year.
Our away game with CHCH started out as a tight afair. With little wind both teams were able to challenge deep and we capitalized on a few mistakes to get a small early lead. aAfter chch got back to whithen 3 points in the second half we again pulled away by scoring the last five to seal the game. Strong game all around as multiple players scored and assisted on goals.
Despite missing three senior starters Gann stepped up in a big way against CHCH today. Taking advantage of a strong crosswind we used cup and junk defenses to create turnovers and smart play near the goal line to convert into scores. Extra Kudo's to Ben Schwartz and are super sophmores Ari, Kobe, Drew and Nora for stepping up into bigger roles and executing the game plan like starters.
