Alexa St. Martin has gone around the globe for soccer

When Alexa St. Martin was 13 years old, she traveled across the country to attend a soccer camp run by the Olympic Development Program in the Los Angeles area. Her parents stayed home in Westford.

Nervous about how their daughter would handle a major trip at such a young age, Bill and Christine St. Martin worried. They figured they’d receive an incessant amount of phone calls from a homesick Alexa.

“She never called us while she was out there. She didn’t seem to mind being away at all,” said Bill. “The thing is, she has been doing this forever with soccer.”

Now 22, the travels very much continue for Alexa, a former Westford Academy and Georgetown University soccer star. In July, she packed up and moved to Herford, Germany, where she currently plays as a defender for the professional soccer club Herforder SV in the Women’s Bundesliga.

To those familiar with international soccer, Bundesliga is a household name. In a country where soccer is king, the Bundesliga is Germany’s strongest and most well-respected league. It’s also among the top women’s leagues in all of Europe. Herforder SV is one of 12 teams in Bundesliga, with the two-part season starting in August and potentially lasting until June.

When Herforder SV extended an offer to Alexa, she quickly signed on with the club in northwest Germany.

“To be honest, I wasn’t at all hesitant to take this opportunity.

Said Bill, “She wasn’t hesitant at all. It’s crazy. She had an agent and she went over there in April, and they liked her a lot. We assumed they would give her an offer.”

World Football's Monday Morning Hangover: A Tale of Two Strikers

October 20th, 2014 by wholesalefhlnk

Welcome to world football’s Monday Morning Hangover, an homage to the NFL section’s own Monday Morning Hangover, where we round up the key stories and important points from the last weekend in world football.

With an inevitable (almost exclusive) focus on the Premier League, let’s get started.

Mozart’s Latest Symphony

Mauricio Pochettino tried to kill him with kindnessor at least, blunt his threat with a couple of well-placed complimentsbut in the end, Sergio Aguerostill put his compatriots side to the sword.

Only Pochettino will know the true intent of his pre-match comments, ones that saw him brand Aguero the best striker in the word…like MozartBeethoven is too crazy. Was this honest praise with no hidden agenda, or was it a Football Manager-esque attempt to heighten the pressure and scrutiny on the striker and put him off his stride?

Whatever the case, the ploy did not have a positive effect for Spurs; the Argentine Mozart casting a spell on his beleaguered opponents and scoring all four goals (even missing a penalty) in a 4-1 victory for his team at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday. Tottenham have now conceded 15 goals in their last three matches against CityAguerowith seven of them. The Argentine currently averages a goal every 108 minutes in his Premier League careerthe best ratio in the history of the competition.

On Saturday, two of his goals came from the penalty spot, but his other twoand his all-round displayhighlighted why he is such a handful for defenders, as he worked one off his right foot and the other off his left.

His movement is like David Silvas; Aguero is able to move between the lines and find the space to attack while simultaneously creating openings for his team-mates. When he gets the ball, he is almost impossible to dispossesskeeping the ball stuck to his feet while dribbling and using his low centre of gravity to his advantage when a defender gets too tight. He is predominantly right-footed, but he is more than capable of sliding home with his left (as he showed against Spurs), making him a lethal No. 9. He is also good in the air for a small player.

Afterwards, City boss Manuel Pellegrini said (per theMirror):

The 31-year-old Norwegian was injured in Austria on Saturday, eight days before the World Cup season starts with a giant slalom in Soelden, Austria.
