The Girls Soccer team and American dueled to a 0-0 conclusion on Thursday night in Fremont.
This proved to be one of the more, if not the most, physical games the Colts have been involved in.
The game appeared to be dominated by American for a better portion of the contest. They displayed an aerial long ball tactic and Logan’s main tactic was playing possession ball by move the ball up the field. Both team’s efforts proved to be futile as this game was a matchup of the midfielders. But nevertheless, American did indeed control the game.
Coach Antonio Villasenor had a different perspective.
“I would say that it was two evenly matched teams,” said Villasenor. “Although we had the best shots [we] could not finish getting the goals”
American’s defense was astonishing as their defensemen stifled the Colts’ forwards all night long. American goaltenders Stephanie Vandenbusch and Katie Blalock combined for the shutout.
The ball moved back and forth as both teams only combined for five shots on goals for the entire game (Logan 3, American 2).
Logan now have a win, a loss and a tie in their record books for the MVAL as they kept American winless(0-2-2). The Colts had lost to Washington and had beaten Irvington prior to this contest.
The fans of American High came out for what was an overall exciting game to watch, despite having the match end in tie and scoreless to top it off.
“Overall it was a good game and exciting,” said Villasenor. “One specially for the fans that went to see us.
The Lady Colts will continue their four-game road trip on Tuesday with a game at Mission San Jose.
