“Plucky”

pluck·y
ˈpləkē/
adjective: having or showing determined courage in the face of difficulties.
That’s what US Soccer said about our team after our Lamar Hunt US Open Cup “Play-in” game.
On Sunday (May 6th) we had a hard-fought battle against the Jacksonville Armada FC. The difficulty faced in the first half was expected due to having only a few days of practice together.
However, we were able to come back to the second half and even up the game. A great long-pass from Gabriel Cabral, a beautiful assist from Leonardo Paiva, and an excellent finish from Gabriel Torres. The final score was The Villages SC 1 x 2 Jacksonville Armada FC. Unfortunately, the result we wanted did come but the future is bright. The 2018 season is going to be one to remember!
