Two comments from Micaela's blog:
First, her reference to a week of papers and exams might explain the lethargic play on Sunday. Coupled with the game on Friday and the injuries to key players, including a couple who played the game, the team seems to have a game or two each year that shows less energy due to exams during the week.
Second, I noticed her removable cleats that help her stay on her feet through all of her acrobatic moves. I wonder if Taylor uses the same as she always has with her feet sliding out from underneath and falling to the field. She has missed many an opportunity and provided opportunity to the opposing team with those falls. High energy play like hers needs good traction. Just a thought triggered by the photo.

All of them have the potential for "removable" cleats. Basically they have either plastic molded cleats or they have metal studs that they can screw in. The studs are particularly made for surfaces like Merlo that get rain-soaked and spongy, as they are supposed to provide that extra traction

I am aware of that, having been involved as a coach and spectator for over 30 years. Shoe choice was always an issue and, according to a posting on this site a couple of years ago, has been at UP also, with players apparently making choices sometimes based on comfort more than on traction. Seems like there was some mention of concern for too much traction and the risk of injury.
