Yellow Rolls

The second scrimmage of training camp was this morning. The teams were re-structured from the first game, but the final result was still decisive, with the yellow team defeating the blue team, 3-0, in a 90-minute match. Amy Rodriguez scored again, sneaking in between a defender and the goalkeeper to steal the ball before slotting in an empty net. She’s sneaky and speedy that Rodriguez. Tobin Heath scored on a blast from outside the box that took a nasty deflection and looped over the goalkeeper. Sarah Huffman added the final goal, finishing a goal mouth scramble. This training camp has been a bit odd, with the two groups training and eating separately, passing each other on the field and in the hotel, but there has been a whole lot of soccer going on at The Home Depot Center and that has been excellent for the U.S. coaching staff. U.S. head coach Pia Sundhage will narrow the camp down at the end of this week and start training one group on Feb. 9.

Well done A-Rod, Toby & others who showed well. Keep impressing Pia. Toughest decision a coach has to make.., who to keep & who to let go.
