Our third game was on a Wednesday, June 19, against Escazu. We arrived at the field and started to warm up. While warming up, it was pouring rain and everyone was soaked. We went to our locker room after warm up and changed into our white uniforms. We came back onto the field and the rain stopped and then the game started. Ten seconds into the game Juan dribbled the ball down the field and scored. After that, we felt more confident and started to play harder. We scored eight more goals and Escazu with none. Juan and Dani both had a hatrick.. Paul, Jake, Triston all scored one. We played three periods thirty minutes each. After the ninety minutes, the final score was 9-0.
