The Loudoun Magic played their first game of the Fall 2006 Season at the Dulles National Tournament in Herndon, VA on Saturday, 26 August 2006. We had to get up early because our soccer game was at 7:30 am. Our entire team, except Kristin was there, and Olivia was a guest player. This was an 8 v 8 tournament so we played a double diamond shape. The Majestics took tons of shots, but Megan K. and Kaylyn did an awesome job in goal. In the first half, Megan W. got a great breakaway and took a hard shot and scored. Dakota took the first corner kick of the season. Maddie did a good job of clearing the ball when she was a defender. Janna made a great pass to Elizabeth and she almost shot. Erin made lots of great passes. Near the end of the game, Olivia made an exciting defensive save by kicking the ball over the goal. Jessie controlled the ball at center mid and did a good job as the target player. She got hurt, but came back in to play because she was tough. The Majestics scored when everyone was smooshed together trying to get the ball and they tapped it in to the tie game. Kylie cheered us on from the side lines because she had a broken toe and could not play. The game ended in a 1-1 tie.
