Off to a Good Start: Nursing Lady Booters Grab First Win

By Alfred Garrido

December 2, 2010- With the cloak of runner up pride wrapped around their pectorals, the Nursing Women’s Football team opens their season in victory, edging the army from Accountancy, 1-0, to grab their first win in the ongoing UST Goodwill Games.

Junior striker Nikka Aquino gave nursing the needed blast at the 44th minute in the middle of an offensive struggle, striking and launching a rocket speed ball through the hands of Accountancy’s ace goalkeeper, slaughtering the back of the goal and sending the entire Nursing crowd into frenzy.

“Anxiety got the best of us during the first half. (But) then again, we realized that we can push ourselves more. The determination to win and perseverance to play our game brought us the point and the lead”, says Aquino, who plays her third year for the team and was vital to the squad’s runner up finish last year.

Alongside Aquino’s offensive blast, nursing gained charge from midfielder Lady Anne So and freshman rookie Roni Mendoza for fierce spirits attacking with every opportunity laid down the green field. The spectacular saves from Nursing’s rookie goalkeeper Shayne Palma created an invincible wall that catapulted every strike that the enemy tries to fire. At that, Nursing began with a flawless 1-0-0 record.

Nursing steps into the season with perspectives greater than winning their first game. Coming up short last year, the team seeks to gain closure to the nightmare that has been haunting them since dropping 0-1 to the Faculty of Medicine, disarming them from the precious chip. This time, all eyes are set to winning the championship. The live persecution brought by Nursing on their first game is just a teaser of bigger things to come. One thing is for sure, the women’s football team’s greatest battles are yet to be fought.
