In sports, there’s an idiom about “moral” or “morale victories”. Basically, it’s thrown out there when a team loses a game but perhaps showed improvement or did something well even in the face of the defeat. Perhaps it was ASA Miami’s 6-5 walk-off loss to Broward College this past Wednesday (March 13) that was the moral victory needed to lift the squad and help them earn the program’s first-ever regular season victory Friday in a 1-0 win over Southeastern Community College. The Lady Silver Storm then doubled down on the victory card, earning a 5-2 win over Parkland College hours later – setting a litany of program records in the process. Naturally, the Lady Silver Storm will set a new program record for wins with each victory this season as well as setting the mark for consecutive victories, given the current two-game winning spurt.
