The first league game for the CMFSC U13 Girls Metro Predators set them against the PoCo Metro team. While tied at the half the Predators pressured up-top while limiting chances against. Very shortly into the second half Claire Furgusen was able to bury a right-footed strike from the right side after being set free with a pass from Jasmine Bowen. The second goal was from a corner kick. Olivia Spyridis served an outswinger into the box that Emily Moon volleyed in on off the bounce.
Jaime Alexander, generally an outside back, stepped up to play centre back. Jaime and her teammates on defines were able to limit scoring opportunities by forcing opponents outside, dispossessing them of the ball, and starting either quick transitions or building up play through good decision making and strong passing.
