I will qualify my summary with the fact that I know very little about soccer tactics (not my game growing up). This was not the best soccer game to watch...a lot of "kick ball" from both sides. Surf B let the center backs for South Bay dictate the flow of the game. This was the same approach that led to a 1-1 first half score in bracket play. A free kick was awarded to Surf just outside of the box before half (1-0). Galaxy had quite a few free kicks themselves (from similar spots) but were unable to put one in the back of the net. Surf B stayed with their defensive approach in the second half. I was surprised to see this strategy work on the big field. I assumed that eventually both the width and the length of the field would yield a goal to a very talented and skilled Galaxy team. I was also watching Blues Holley (06) use a similar approach on the small field and there was very little space to connect passes. Anyhow a great run so far for Surf's 2nd team, scary game tomorrow for them [/QUOTE] I'm rooting for a cinderella story!
