Our Women return home from a tough road trip against the perennial powerhouse Pali Blues (2-1-2) and newcomers Santa Clarita Blue Heat (0-2-1) with another pair of non-decisions.
That's right, 5 straight draws to begin the season.
One can easily look at this start to the '10 campaign with either the glass-half-empty or half-full point of view. On on hand, our ladies cannot seem to close the door on clearly subpar teams to the likes of Santa Clarita, the Colorado Rush, or the Force, who each have yet to notch their belts this season. However, earning a tough point, on the road, against a formidable Pali side, is no small feat indeed.
So where does this put our ladies?
Well, we're undefeated with the heavy road trips behind us. We sit a mere three points behind 2nd place Pali with 4 of our 5 remaining matches at home.
So, no wins, yet our future remains ours to decide, much like the USMNT in South Africa.
Wednesday is critical for both teams. The US must defeat Algeria to control their own destiny and our Women have a critical home match against arch-rival and table-topping Vancouver; a big chance for our ladies to prove themselves amongst the W-League elite and begin their climb back atop the Western Conference.
Let's make sure there is a lot of support Wednesday night as the ladies do battle on Field #2! See you on the balcony at MAD Pizza!
