Riverdale 1 Liberty-Benton 1

Ugly game from the Falcons. It was almost embarrassing to watch how many of our boys were cramping up. A Liberty-Benton boy in the stands yelled "that's what you get for drinking pop..". Unfortunately, that's the mentality of the kids in the crowd. My son drinks very little pop during soccer...the coaches preach against it...they know better. It was my opinion that we get out-passed by other teams so far this year. We looked like U6 players chasing the ball around and kept the dribble far too long. What caused our players to cramp so much is the fact that they probably ended up running twice as far as the L-B kids did during the game. Playing smarter would have saved them not only some embarrassment, but might have ended up giving us some opportunities we didn't allow ourselves to have to get a win.

So until the boys start to play like they're able, they'll be labelled a "lucky" team by their opponents...just like last year.

I don't mean to sound negative, because I want the kids to reach their potential...which could be a very nice thing. If nothing else, I want these poor performances to turn into motivation to get there. Go Falcons!

Not sure who thinks Rdale is "lucky". Always a quality side, and your future is bright having seen the 8th graders demolish Kenton.

After winning their league last year, beating L-B in 2 OT's and shootout at district, there were rumblings that Riverdale was just lucky in some of their wins. That's why I used that term. The team had a pretty successful summer tourney/scrimmage record, but are in a funk right now. They have the makings of a good team, but until they discipline themselves to play at a high level consistently, they're not going to impress their competition...and therefore...when they beat a "good" team, they might just be considered "lucky" by some of the teams they played earlier in the season.

"I'd rather be lucky than good." If luck got them a league title and district final appearance, then keep wearing those clovers & be happy. Also, you don't get lucky without putting in the work to be in position to be lucky.

"Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity" is another quote that goes along with what you are saying. I guess I'll take some luck over a loss any day...but it sure is nice when there is some respect to go along with the spoils of victory. It's just frustrating when you don't perform to your capabilities consistently.
