The Lou Fusz 2007 Girls Academy Bryant team, coming off of their 2nd place finish at the National Championship in July, opened their second season with three wins. Monday’s match against Lonestar SC (Austin) finished 2-0 as the team scored a pair of quality goals on set pieces. The first came on a corner from the right side that was sent on the ground to the near side but a beautiful dummy allowed the ball to find the ACM #31 about 10 yards out and her one-time effort went in off the underside of the crossbar, freezing the GK. Not long afterwards Peyton Duffing, a center back who handled all of the corner kicks, scored directly from a corner from the left side. Both goals came in the first half and the team shut down Lonestar, allowing only one shot on goal in the second half, for the win. LFA 2007 GA Bryant Start Strong
I’ll have more to report once I receive the rosters I requested so that I can properly identify the players in my report. There are over 150 college coaches who follow my Twitter account (and the reason you should have a Twitter account, for college recruitment) and my independent reporting offers an important channel for their recruiting efforts.
The team won all three matches this weekend as noted earlier for a strong start to the 2021-2022 season. They finished with a +12 goal differential, giving up only a single goal to the Houston Dash Sunday. The games were part of a season opening tournament against the three Texas-based programs that came to town to compete against LFA, Sporting STL and Kansas Rush.
