SoccerGame Recap: Sky Blue FC vs NC Courage by Paola Garcia Cardenas April 4, 2018 Cary, NC (March 31, 2018) – If my predictions accounted for only the 90-minute length of the games, I would have predicted this game correctly. Though this was not the case and I am now 0/1 on the board.The game was 0-0 up until the 92nd minute. A late goal from Jessica McDonald handed the 1-0 victory to North Carolina Courage over Sky Blue FC, and the Courage now sit in first place of the standings for week 2.The First Half Goes to Sky Blue FCI definitely liked what I saw in the first half for SBFC. The presence and leadership of Carli Lloyd in the midfield was essential in the creation of opportunities for the team. There were great plays by Savannah McCaskill and Shea Groom. Despite only getting three shots on goal, SBFC displayed good teamwork and ball movement for the first half.After halftime, the NC Courage team regrouped and came out more aggressive. We saw dangerous plays by the Hamilton, Dunn and McDonald trio. Regardless of the many opportunities created by NC Courage, it took them additional time added to the clock to be able to convert and take the three points from SBFC..@J_Mac1422 breaks open the scoring on Saturday afternoon, and breaks open the win for the Courage.#NCvNJ | #NWSL | @go90Sports pic.twitter.com/UOacmYbGC2— NWSL (@NWSL) March 31, 2018Next, Home Opener in New JerseyThis upcoming weekend there is a FIFA break.
