The Parkland Boys & Girls HS soccer teams play Emmaus tomorrow (Wednesday). There is a long standing rivalry between these teams and it would be great to get our families to come out and support the PHS soccer teams. I believe this is the only home night game for the boys due to PSD budget cuts.
BOYS: (JV) 5:30 pm and (Varsity) 7pm – PHS Stadium field.
GIRLS: (JV) 5:30 pm and (Varsity) 7pm – Emmaus HS
Players could use these games as a learning opportunity by watching players on the field that play a similar position:
Things to look for:
-Movement on/off ball
-Throw-ins -possession is 1st option.
-Offensive - How there are always (3) players “connected” – remember player with ball should always have two options to play the ball to.
-Defense – (2-3) players “connected” pressure/support.
-Individual player speed
-If a player loses possession, what do they do?
-Goalies – Communication, ball distribution after a save, wall set up, corner kick defense.
