The dust is settling on tonight, and I find myself looking backwards and forwards.
Against Fort Knox last year, we played two matches, and we lost by a combined score of 0-6 (0-2 in the first match; 0-4 in the second match).
Against Fort Knox this year, we played two matches, and we won 4-3 on aggregate (2-1 in the first match; 2-2 in the second match).
It goes without saying (though I’ll say it anyway) that tonight’s draw felt like a positive for us. Twice we went behind, and twice we responded with quick goals of our own. The game was very back and forth, and it was a great one to watch. Both teams could have emerged with a win, and a draw was a fair result. It felt better for us, though, because we came from behind twice to get the draw.
That gives us some momentum going into tomorrow’s second installment of the Rough River Derby. Rivalry matches throw records out the window.
It will be a battle tomorrow.
I’m looking forward to it.
See you there.
Coach (Mr.) Garrett
