Still can’t get over the kids’ soccer games on Saturday. The U10 boys came back from a 2 goal deficit to tie it up in the second half. There was an own goal against Gavin (no way to stop it), but they tied it up again with less than a minute to play in the game. They never – ever – gave up – and played so well as a team. They didn’t bunch, passed well and looked great against an older team. My son stopped everything else while in goal, including a penalty kick over the wall.
The U12 girls went up against a team from another local YMCA that play a very physical game. They got called for a couple pushes that ended their rough play. A couple of the girls really shined Saturday, but they all played so well – Much better than I expected. The shiners have struggled to fully understand the game, over the last few seasons, but one scored and another stole everything that came near her, passed well and played tough. Nice 4-1 win and I’m so proud of them all.
Oh yes the image? The girls all decided they wanted to be the “Spartans” as their jerseys are Green and White.
