GC Damen 1: 1st Round of the Indoor Championship

Rotweiss Wettingen - Grasshopper Club Zürich --- 8:0

After a nice and good practise tournement in Ulm and u few trainings inside, it was time for the first day of our indoor season. A nice and stormy day outside, so a perfect day to play in our own indoorhall in Zürich. We started the day with coffee and a video meeting. After that it was time to get ready for the first match. Not the easiest match to start with: Rotweiss Wettingen. Our tactical plan helped us out, especially the first half we did really well. With a few opportunities on our side and lots of nice saves from Jose in our own goal it was a good game. During the break it was 3:0. The second half was more difficult. Rotweiss knew our tactical plan better and pushed trough. Though, we saved a few corners and a penalty corner as well. Unfortunately Rotweiss became better and better and started scoring, final score - 8:0.

Grasshopper Club Zürich - HC Olten --- 0:4

The second game of the day was against HC Olten.After a good warm up the ladies were ready to fight for some points.HC Olten played the same system as the ladies of GC, what made the first half chaotic.After a motivating pep-talk at half-time the ladies were ready to fight for the first goals of the indoor season. 10 minutes before the end, it was still 0:3. Goal keeper out and Noortje in as an extra player. Despite the hard work in the second half the end score was 0:4 for HC Olten.

GC knows where to work on in the next two week to prepare them for the games in Geneva.
