    Hey, they were actually fun to watch! Good. high paced possession soccer - Barca style - with MANY chances in both halves. Still need more composure and guile in the final 30, we can't always rely on Abby to pull us through. Is it just me or does Amy R. always seem to tighten at the critical moment? Brings a lot to the table but may lack the assassin's heart. Hopefully with all the chances she'll get past it. Still wonder why Natasha Kai, Lori Chulupny and Kia McNeill aren't on the roster. All high quality.
