I see someone from DeKalb is at least fairly active on here so maybe you'll see this before tonight. I was #10 for Goodpasture, I played as a defensive midfielder. First off, Great game last night. We both fought hard the whole 100 minutes and I really feel you guys deserved to pull out the win as much as it hurts. Shame that it had to be a penalty to shift the momentum but you guys would have gotten a goal anyway so it's fair enough. More than anything I'd like to see Central lose so here's the advice I can give that got us to 0-0 at halftime against them. Their main, and maybe only, weakness against us was that they were too eager to counter. This meant we could have our forward dribble towards their back line and then drop the ball back for free 20-25 yard shots. Also, we played a stopper/sweeper (you guys called it in the first 30 seconds you saw it). Central has trouble dealing with a dedicated ball-winning midfielder who stays back when we attack. It messes with their passing flow. They ended up scoring on us the same way you guys attacked (chipping our outside back and hitting crosses) but one single player set to stop counters disrupted their entire attack from the front and they got frustrated fast. I know you guys can take it to Central. Good luck
