Deer In The Headlights
Several crossing the road from a farmer's field on the way home from volleyball.
So we played 2 really good, competitive games, determined by a couple points each, which we split. The reason we lost our match today was the first game in which we played like deer in the headlights. Hard to win when you spot the other side 9 points right off the bat. After how well we did last week, we were bound to come back to earth.
I played pretty well overall, ignoring that first game. I've been putting more power into the serve, but I'm still having a hard time keeping the ball down, so I'm missing long. I tried working on that after our match--one team didn't have enough players and had to forfeit, so we had 3 pickup games. I improved a little and played really good ball during the first couple games, but I pretty much was worthless at the end. Fun all the same!
