OT 4 Poppet - Just one more brag about GR soccer.
Tue Jul 11, 2017 12:50pm

Our Women's team scoring leader won United Women's Soccer golden boot with 14 goals.

Even more amazing is that she had started at outside mid and scored no goals but was changed later in the season to Center Forward and proceeded to rack up 14 goals in 5 games, the last 4 games each with a hat-trick or more. Also, she only played 448 minutes this season meaning a goal every 32 minutes.

Can't wait for the playoffs!

      You realize imma call up Gavin Wilkinson in the Thorns FO and see if we can poach her, right? =P Seriously, that is absolutely stellar. Wishing ya the very best of luck in the playoffs!

              I've missed one Thorns home match ever. =) Smith was impressive (for all that her scuffed clearance led to the Thorns goal). Really good, aggressive player on both sides of the ball.,,

        heh, not sure how well UWS translates to that level. :P Also, the kind of performances the team has put together show it's a whole team kind of thing going on. I think we may be reframing the wonder... more

        We did so well and had proper facilities such that we're hosting the whole thing. I just bought our tickets today. Might even go to the matches we're not in as well.
