Today we started our day off with practice time where we did some drills to work through scoring strategy. We played our first game against the Amazons this afternoon. The Amazons are a team of strong women from around the world. For this game we decided to sit some key players. This gave an opportunity for some ladies to step up and we executed some nice plays and drives. It was a challenging and fun scrimmage.
We had another practice time which we invited the USA men to scrimmage us. This was a good opportunity for us to practice our defensive strategy. Thank you to Team USA men for scrimmaging us!
For our final scrimmage of the day we played Australia again. This game we sat some other key players for the first half. Australia made some adjustments and were stronger than yesterday. We spent a lot of time playing defense. For the second half we mixed up the line up and this re-invigorated the team so we were playing more offense. Australia definitely stepped up and played well today. It was a good scrimmage.
Friday is our final day of friendly play before the official tournament begins. We have two games tomorrow against the Amazons and Canada. We will also be finalizing the 2016 Team USA Women's Elite roster which will be attending the World Championships in South Africa! It will be an exciting day for Team USA!
