GC Damen: Season Start Victory against Basler HC

Grasshopper Club Zürich - Basler HC --- 2:1

Today we played against Basel. It was our first game after a month and a half of pre-season and we were very excited for our debut. We have been preparing a lot for this new season, with a new project and a lot of desire.

We started the warm-up focused and eager to get our first three points of the tournament. We started the first quarter with a bit of nerves but we had the control of the game.

In the beginning of the second quarter Caro was able to get our first gol of the season, with a good combination from a long corner and a great and strong flat from Eline. 

In GC-Ladies fashion there was a dip in energy and concentration after the half-time, which lead to Basel getting a short corner and scoring. 

In the last break, after a speech by our coach Lucho and the goalie Tanja, we were able to focus again in the game at hand. Our new found motivation was quickly rewarded by a goal by Virginia after a great combination with Blandine. Despite Basel fighting hard to prevent any further chances we were able to keep our result and win the match!

We are very happy to start the season by winning a home game and achieving our first 3 points of the season. We hope to continue our progress in the games to come and we are looking forward to testing ourselves against Black Boys on coming Sunday. Go GC !!!!
