Response to What happens when female soccer players get to college?
The girls anticipate the play so much better and are positioned so much better to prevent the opposing team from running their possession schemes.
Also, you have very seasoned and tough defenders with a very different mindset from the girls in youth soccer. These girls are big and strong with a fierce disposition. They will crush you and think nothing of it. You have to be very resilient to play in this environment (physically and mentally). All that puts a damper on playing with skill only (as opposed to strength and toughness).
