Shew! What a game!!! First the weather was absolutely gorgeous, and to top it off E’s soccer game this afternoon was one of the best yet. We ended in a tie, but this was against a pretty tough team AND we were missing two of our starting defenders. I love watching our talented girls play so well! At the half it was 0-0, but both teams turned up the heat the 2nd half. E scored both goals for her team…the first was from a drop made by the opposing team’s goalie. E just happened to be at the right place at the right time and she did not give up on the goal, which is something her daddy (and coach) had been coaching the entire team on. She ended up with a kick to the gut and landed on the ground for a couple of minutes, but so did the goalie and another team member of the opposing team. There were some pretty tough girls at the game today from both sides of the field. Luckily, all the girls were ok, and were able to continue playing.
The second goal came just after Team Noslen scored their 2nd goal bringing them out on top with a score of 2-1. Somehow we were able to get the ball up the field and E was able to get in a position for a good shot to the corner of the net! GOAL!!! We were back to tie at 2-2! By the time the ref blew the final whistle, the game ended in a tie. The girls were absolutely thrilled wtih the outcome, and they should be! Our defensive line was awesome, and our goalie had her best game yet!
I thoroughly enjoyed watching really talented, athletic girls compete and play their hearts out! Shew, what a game!
