Rivalry Renewed

So, the rivalry between Montpelier and U-32 is revived tonight when the girls square off at Montpelier. As you might imagine, there is a pretty healthy rivalry between these two schools which are situated probably about 5 miles apart. It will be fun though as it always is when rivals meet, but I wish that the girls' crowd was as energetic as the boys'. I don't know why, but it always seems like there are more people there for boys' games than girls'. This style of play is normally different, but I think that both can be a lot of fun assuming that good teams are playing. It makes the game kind of boring when it is just turnover after turnover with sloppy play no matter if boys or girls are playing. I think that boys play at a faster tempo, but I feel that girls tend to plan more as a team although that is a sweeping generalization on both counts. Nevertheless, they are slightly different games, but they can be appreciated for what they are. Tonight, hopefully the third quarter will go better for U-32 than it did last time, then maybe they will be able to come away with the victory this time.
