Ransom Tournament Part 2
Palmetto vs Ransom was a game that we weren't looking forward to. Ransom has been developing their current team since 2012 which means their team has been playing together for at least 4 years. They were without a top 3 team in the state and one could make an argument that they had the best defense. In other words, they were a team that was a couple of steps better than us. During the game some of the younger players didn't have very much confidence which didn't help our already tough situation. Palmetto managed to get 3 goals all in the first quarter and then the Ransom talent that the whole state fears showed up. They racked up 13 goals in the last 3 quarters to end the game 17-3. Despite losing this game I was happy the game was able to give the younger players some experience against a tough team. After the game was over I talked to the Ransom team and begged for them to beat Belen (another top 3 team) in the upcoming regionals final. Unfortunately they weren't able to but I look forward to coming down from college next year and seeing that young Ransom team perform at an even higher level.
