View Full Version : Tabb 1 Jamestown 0

I would give my normal play by play but there is nothing to report. :) Only our defense made a valliant effort. I won't say anything else because negative attitudes breed negative results hence Jamestown lost. Pick your heads up Jamestown the season isn't halfway through yet. The sooner we act as one on the field the sooner we can accomplish our goals. No pun intended!!!:)

I was just so tired of all the pre season posts constantly letting us know that all the Jamestown girls play on a travel team. Maybe now that will stop. It may be true, but they are still beatable. Only about half of Tabb's girls play on travel teams, and they are a darn good team. The number of travel players does not guarantee a win.

You know that the pre-season predictions do not take in account how a team is going to play with one another. From what I saw last night, both teams really played well. Unfortunately there has to be a winner and a team that comes up short on the scoreboard. No matter what the score is none of the girls that were on the field or setting on the bench could be considered losers.
It is just one sad note that a coach expects a win, and can't put the best team on the field all the time.
Enough said on that matter.

OK- I have to weigh in on this one as well. The score definitely does not reflect the play of the game- in the words of one of Tabbs players as heard after the game " They dominated us"- unfortunately the Eagles just couldn't find the back of the net, girls held the ball too long before passing, defenders were calling for the ball to be played back and then were unable to make a play once the ball was played back- but for the most part Tabbs player is right , Jamestown did dominate the game. I must agree that the Jamestown keeper did a great job as well as Liz Palmer, Meredith Eckles and Lauren Gough. The refs calls again were questionable as this seems to be becoming the norm in the Bay Rivers, Gough was taken down inside the box with no call, J-towns keeper was plowed into with no call, and there were some fouls that should have gone against Jamestown that got no call. After seeing this matchup and the outcome of the Grafton-Lafayette game, it is clear to me that Lafayette should have no problem with a repeat in the Bay Rivers this year.

About the only predictions I got right were it was a great night for soccer and it was tax day.
On to the game, I thought J'town dominated the first half by moving the ball well, setting up good angles for shots and kept Tabb's scoring machine in check. The Tabb girls consistently watched their opponents beat them to the ball, win the 50/50 balls and just plain out play them. Tabb's defensive captain (Kienle) was injured early in the game but the rest of the defense stepped up and Wallace made some great saves. BTW, play of the game goes to Julie Trumpoldt for deflecting a solid shot on goal with the keeper was out of pocket. She also gets player of the game for effort and firing up the Tabb team in the second half.
I'm not sure what happened at half time but Tabb came out refreshed and ready to play while J'town looked tired and confused. J'town had to have at least 10 subs on the bench so I'm not sure how they could be tired. Either way, Tabb picked up the tempo and the mids started controlling the game and moving the ball forward for shots on goal. It was only a matter of time before a breakaway took place or one of Tabb's forwards wrestled the ball away for a shot on goal. J'town's defense was solid but as the game progressed, you could see a gap open up between J'town's mid and their defense which let Tabb fill the hole. Trumpoldt's long lead pass from mid to Mills up front was the deference in the game. Tabb had a four on two in front of the net and that's never good.
Congrats to both teams for a great, nail-biter of a game. Too bad the concession stand was closed, they could have made a lot of money selling Mylanta (or coffee).

I have to disagree. Jamestown did not dominate the game. At times, yes Jamestown 'dominated', but at times Tabb also 'dominated'. It was a well played game by both teams. Tabb won on a great look to one of the forwards. Jamestown had some chances as well but were unable to finish. In the first half, Jamestown had many more opportunities than Tabb, but by the 2nd half, Tabb controlled the tempo. Good luck to both teams in the district.

First off I'd like to say I don't recall any Tabb player stating that Jamestown dominated them, because that's not the type of game it was. Although Jamestown did seem to come off slightly stronger in the first half, the second half was anyones game, or Tabb's as the scoreboard showed. It was definitely one of the best played high school soccer games I've seen, intense from the first minute to the last, both teams playing hard but one with more heart. Which leads me to my next point...
All anyone talked about was "big tuesday" which was when the top teams in the bay rivers district all took on each other. Grafton vs. Lafayette and Tabb vs. Jamestown were by far the most discussed games but come Wednesday morning the article covering the Grafton Lafayette game was miniscule and the article covering the Tabb Jamestown game...oh wait, there wasn't one! I thought the daily press was supposed to cover the big games with the best soccer, not the biggest schools. Hopefully that will change and hopefully there will be something, if not just a score, of the Tabb Jamestown game in tomorrows paper.
Monday will be another big day as undefeated Lafayette takes on undefeated Tabb. Can't wait to see how that one turns out. Although if you want to know what really happens I wouldn't rely on the newspaper giving you anything more than a score...if that.

We pick the best games of the week to get to for coverage, and rely on hosts coaches to call in the results of the rest.
If they don't, then we won't have them. We can't be everywhere and we can't control who reports their results.

Good point Jennifer. I saw both coaches after the Tabb/Jamestown game and they looked like they were ready to head home, grab a Diet Pepsi, collapse in their easier chairs and watch "Deal of No Deal". :lol: Bottomline: it was late and they were spent, so if the scores/highlights don't get in on time, no sweat. Besides, the DP can alwasy count on the parents using HRVaristy to report the unbiased, fair and balanced, details of the games. Your guys (and gals) do fine, keep up the good work.

Oh I completely understand that the coaches were tired and I'm not bothered by the fact that the scores were posted the day after. My main point was that out of the games that week the two biggest games weren't even a story in the newspaper. But no worries, there's a big game Monday and I'm sure the DP will cover it, they usually do a good job with it. And ghostrider I wasn't asking you for clarification, so you can stop your brown nosing now.
