The Lady Broncos opened up league play hosting Allendale and controlled play in the first half, outshooting the Falcons 7-2 and having several good looks at the goal while keeping the ball in the offensive half for much of the time while connecting passes and making runs. With all of that, they were not able to get the ball past the Allendale keeper and went into halftime tied 0-0.
Allendale came out after the break and controlled play much of the half, scoring the lone goal of the night on a shot that would slide past the defense into the net just four minutes into the half. The effort was high and the drive was present, yet passes went just long, touches were a little heavy, and shots were minimized to just two on frame in the 2nd half. Kudos to those defensive players who withstood the pressure in the 2nd half - it was very high at points and the defense did well to limit the shots on goal. Shots on goal finished at nine each for the game.
The team is set to travel to Chippewa Hills on Saturday for a 2-game tournament that will see everyone get plenty of time on the field and more crucial experience playing together.
