Men Competing Against Women

Girl Goalies and Guys’ Egos
If I get down a couple of goals to “la fille”, the guys on my team will go like gangbusters to mount a comeback.  Conversely, the guys on her side frequently seem to be in awe of her stuff, almost letting her get more action on purpose to see if she can handle it.  Then, if they win they seem just as likely to chalk it up to their great goalscoring rather than her goaltending.
This is an interesting take - one that I would never have thought of. Personally, I've never had any problems men competing against me. But then, I wasn't a goalie, either. And I'm a tall girl, too, so that helps.
