I don’t know why, but I could not do anything right tonight. I felt ok all week in training and was even doing extra work outside of training to prepare myself for the match. I think I may have overdone the physical work because I was very tired during the match. I only made two or three runs before I felt fatigued. As a result, I didn’t do what I was put into the game to do which was to stretch the opposition defense and maybe even get a breakaway. Instead, I spent most of my time receiving balls to my feet and with my back to goal; not exactly my strongest skills. Even when I made runs behind, they were so uncommon that the player with the ball was surprised I made it and didn’t pass the ball before I was offsides. To compound my misery, I accidentally blocked a goalbound flick from Kris that may have been the winning goal and I dribbled the ball out of bounds when I thought I was going to get hit but didn’t. It was just a bad day for me overall. There was a lone positive about my performance though. I made a good 60 yard run and got my head on a cross, but the goalkeeper made a great save and I was denied the winning goal.
