Vélez Continues Improvement this Weekend - 2001

Posted by Miguel Nuila on Nov 03 2001 at 04:00PM PST
The mighty Vélez team continued their developement of total soccer this weekend beating the 1st and 3rd place teams in the league (2-1 against T/E and 4-0 against Spirit). In both games, it took a while to establish a flow with the Spirit game being the toughest game of the weekend. Even though T/E had us 1-0 early on, we really were never out of control holding most of the possession and the dangerous runs. The Spirit game proved to be totally different playing our first game at the VERY wide South Ardmore field on a bright sunny day where players literally could not find each other in their sky blues. Second half, with the sun at our backs, Vélez took over possession and established itself with four goals. Both Spirit and T/E were formidable foes and so the victories are sweet ones. But believe me when I tell you, the boys still don't really understand just how good they will be when their brains grow a just a little more and they are better able to understand what we are trying to accomplish. I expect this spring's Vélez team to be the best to date.
