FC Indiana’s Corie Moore expects more from herself

Posted by iamhannah on May 6, 2009

INDIANAPOLIS, IN, May 5, 2009 —  FC Indiana coach Shek Borkowski saw Corie Moore for the first time in February of 2007. He was in Detroit watching an indoor co-ed tournament when he spotted Moore.
“I talked to her about FC Indiana and asked her to play with us,” said the coach.
Borkowski, who makes it a habit of looking for players where other coaches don’t tread, says he liked Moore’s athleticism and her attitude, “Corie has no fear of names and reputations. She simply competes for 90 minutes.”

Since that Detroit weekend in 2007, Moore helped FC Indiana to WPSL league title, US Open Cup title and a second place W-League finish last year. Along the way, she helped the club beat New Zealand WNT 1-0 and in the last two weekends she helped stop Heather O’Reilly, Sarah Walsh and Cristiane. Not bad for a player who was not recruited coming out of high school and ended up playing at University of Findlay.
Borkowski describes Moore as a late bloomer. “With the late developers – my philosophy is to have them playing men’s soccer November-March. They’d come back with bloody noses sometimes, but they learn the physical side, plus they’d get genuine criticism from male players and be under more realistic pressure. Many times going straight from college to our team is just too vast.”
Borkowski describes Moore as a good athlete who had to learn a lot, “when she first came to us she was pretty raw but now she knows when to go tight and when to drop off and the art of defending is all about reading the situation.”

In her third season in Indiana, Moore feels like there is more for her to achieve. “Graduating from Findlay I though I was done with soccer,” she says. “Now, the last two seasons increased my ambition.”
