one of the awesome 11 players playing field hockey. very brave and courageous for let those rock hard balls fly at her. and no it is not just about stopping the ball it is about breaking the other teams confidence level. Definatly one of the coolest players on the field but she also realizes that she could not do it without her team mates and at the end of the game the teammates should run to he so that she is part of it. She out of all the players deserves the most respect she has one of the hardest jobs. when the goalie closes her eyes she sees the ball go into goal when a field player closes their eyes they just see the ball go bye them to someone else.
you know a field hockey goalie is awesome just look at what they wear and tell me they are not tough
