A Look at Game 6
Apr. 22, 2018
On Saturday, April 28th, the Ocala Hurricanes will face the Gray squad, whom they blasted, 5-0, in Game 2, on Field 2.
"That match played into our hands on the bigger field because we played to our wings and wore them out with better passing to spread the field," said Coach Miley. "We really stormed them in the second half after we wore them down. This rematch will be on a smaller field, Field 7, and earlier in the morning without the heat to help our plan to wear down opponents with our passing. We will need to do the same sort of stuff, but even more. Fortunately for us, we are getting better at what we do best, and our defense has been shutting out some very good athletes. The Gray squad has some strong and well coached big athletes, but we isolated their best strikers last time and we plan to do that again."
In that first match against Gray, Eric Osornio slammed in two late goals on surprise attacks coming from the top of the diamond, and later asked Coach Miley, "Tell me what I can do better."
"This is the kind of team we have," said Miley. "They are hungry to do better every time. I push them, but they push themselves harder. We have a good set of dynamics staged by our hardest workers, and everybody rises to the latest leader's example as some kind of personal challenge. That is the kind of group this is. They have what champion teacher Jaime Escalante emphasized as "GANAS". Nobody can teach that, but anyone can awaken that. We are at a place of awakening the GANAS in one another as we find out who we can be as a very young squad in this short season. Eric captures this "DESIRE" with that Escalante-style passion. It is a good place to be when we take up his spark. Our younger kids now know they belong at the top because of their teamwork. They are not about to give that up. The gray squad has an intelligent midfielder named Mia who sets up a lot of their attacks with long field vision and accurate long passes. She is a player we respect For her ability to stretch the field. They are well coached, with a lot of heart, but I have no doubt we will be ready for this Gray squad."
