From The Pitch: Titans Shorthanded But Strong

October 9, 2012 - The last couple of weeks have been tough for our Lady Titans. Serious injuries have resulted in three of our players being out for the rest of our season. As if that was not enough, the victory against Broward College caused us more harm when two of our players suffered concussions and one received a red card. Our challenge grows as our roster decreases.

Even though the loss of players is hurting us, we have a strong team with talented girls who will show their strength and dedication. They will step up and fill the spots with great success. The situation means we have to come closer together and work even harder for each other. I have no doubt in my mind we will continue our winning streak, because I know we have the capability.

I wish all of our injured players the best and hope for quick recoveries.

We are one game away  — tonight at Polk State College — from winning the conference, and we will fight hard and take that victory. History has demonstrated the most notable winners usually encountered heartbreaking obstacles before they triumphed. They won because they refused to become discouraged by their defeats.
