PHS v Emmaus Soccer

Wednesday, September 19

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:           
 -First touch
 -Movement on/off ball
 -Communication
 -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
 -50/50 balls
 -If a player loses possession, what do they do?
 -Goalies – Communication, ball distribution after a save, wall set up, corner kick defense.
