Lady Bombers fall short in Atlanta

ImageAtlanta, GA. September 20, 2008. The Atlanta Lady Kookas defeated a joint New York/Milwaukee squad today in Atlanta with a final score of 64 to 18. 

  The Lady Bommbers traveled down south for a rematch of the early season battle with the Atlanta Lady Kookaburras. Joining the Bombers this time were the women from NY. Milwaukee coach Ross Siegel joined forces with the NY Magpie coach Anthony.

The teams had a perfect footy day at Creel Park, high of 80 degrees, sunny, and very little wind. The game started off with on a fierce pace, with both teams looking to control the ball early. Bomber captain Denielle David worked hard on and off the ball, and looked for forward Suzy Thomas often. Nicole Martiny found a comfortable spot on the wing, enjoying her time off the ball for once. In the back, the defense was lead by Minnesota native Kathryn Hogg and Megan Krauss. Megan battled Atlanta captain Judith Stein throughout the day in an elbow-filled battle holding her to one goal.

Playing in their first joint effort, both the MKE and NY teams battled hard. The first half allowed the team new team to find a rhythm and adjustment to each other. Just before halftime NY forward Corynne Pereira found the right portion of the goal for 6 points. The second half was much better as a team – the players were more comfortable with each other and fought hard to the end. Early in the third quarter saw Nicole Martiny sent off in a bizarre decision by the referee after she received a deliberate kick in the back from an Atlanta player. Captain Denielle David was carried off the field (once again) by coach Siegel as the hard effort and heat combination left her dehydrated and delirious. David did not return to the game but was in good spirits after receiving care by nurse-by-day Nicole Martiny.

After the game, coach Siegel noted, “For me it was the best game I've seen from the women's side. Atlanta is a very good team and play extremely well as a team so to toss out a combined team like we did, we knew it was an uphill battle. Once the players got acquainted with each other we really controlled the tempo of the game and gave Atlanta a run. The effort was very impressive and a nice momentum builder heading into nationals for both the Milwaukee and New York's girls.   

Both New York and Milwaukee now look forward to Nationals, where they will compete as separate teams. Nationals will take place in Colorado Springs October 11 and 12. This year a record six womens teams will be competing.
