FH at Monmouth

Did I read that box score correctly?  15 PCs and no goals??!!  You can't win anything like that!  I know it's game #2, but, come on.  What happened to the offensive corner execution?

The Monmouth Field is awful. Yes 15 corners with 5 inserts that didn't even get a stop. Aside from it being hard there were actual bumps in the circle. I think we should have gotten there early and practiced on the field!  There was a mystery call of a stroke in the second half. It was near the edge of the circe near the end line, no way a deliberate foul either. The monmouth folks told us that referee, refs virtually every Monmouth game. Terribly officiated game. Monmouth was primed for this game. ( They also had no classes this week). They were aggressive and their goalie was on!!Still think we had better personnel.

I would recommend we no longer schedule monmouth@ monmouth until the field is fixed. I note Monmouth had no shots ( except for the stroke)  in the second half. they also had no corners. ( we had eight)

Sunday's game against Longwood now becomes important. They are off to their best start ever after beating Villanova yesterday. We need this win!!

Field or no field, you can't let that happen at this level and expect to be an elite program.  Monmouth was begging to lose by giving you 15 shots at the cage.  Apply the average conversion rate and you win the game.

I hope they are working on corners today.  Losing to Longwood would be ...well, how to say it ...embarrassing.
