Calm Under Pressure

Pompano Tornadoes vs M Stoneman Douglas HS on 11/7/2008
Posted Monday, November 10, 2008 by Karen Morgan
"Calm Under Pressure" was the motto for Goalie Jennifer Johnson at Friday nights game against defending state champs Douglas.  Jennifer saved 20 shots on goal against the Eagles offense.    With a defensive team consisting of Shelby Petik, Ashley Quintal,  Claire Engle and Gia DiRoberto  the Lady Tornadoes were able to hold Douglas scoreless in the first 35 minutes of play. 

Pompano never lost their focus even though Douglas scored 2 quick goals late in the first half.  During half time Coach Fry talked to the girls about staying mentally strong and finishing what they started.  Our Lady Tornadoes can be proud in the fact they held Douglas scoreless in the 2nd half.

The game was a learning experience for everybody and a show of what determination and teamwork can accomplish.  Even though the game will go down as a loss, Pompano Tornadoes  knew it was a win for the growing program!
