Day 7: Roda JC Training and Match 3 vs. Sporting Heerlen

::by Andrew Austin

Us Mainers are no strangers to rainy weather. So it came as no surprise when we woke up this morning to foggy skies and a slight drizzle. We can't complain, since the weather has been beautiful every day leading up. After breakfast we took a short bus ride to where Roda JC practices and got to watch them train. It was very cool to see what drills a professional team does and the high level of skill and intensity they play at. After the practice we got to meet and take some pictures with a few of the players.

When we got back to the hotel we had a lot of much needed down time to relax before our game against Sporting Heerlen at 7:30 PM. Throughout the game it was evident that we were playing much better than the previous game despite the final score of 7-0. Coach Gettler was impressed with our effort and ability to keep our composure. All in all it was a great learning experience, and I feel it will help build us as a team in the long run.
