Our first soccer game was this morning. Same coach as in the fall, most of the same players, too. Although we lost today, I thought we played well. They added a bit of time to each quarter/period, and the kids were totally exhausted by the end of the game!
Drew started off the game playing goalie. He didn't see any action the first quarter but they did score a goal the second :( He did a great job paying attention - it was one of those kicks that went to the opposite corner, so he just couldn't get there in time. He was disappointed about that, and was very unhappy that we lost in the end. I think it's fair to say that Brady has been rubbing off on him...
Keeping his focus
After the half, Drew took the offensive...
He got his foot on the ball a lot, definitely even
more than in the fall.
However, a few minutes in, he started having trouble breathing. He stayed in there and played, but by the time the coach blew the whistle, he was in tears. Not sure what to make of that :( He seems to be feeling fine now. He did sit out the fourth quarter to catch his breath.
Mallory, on the other hand, spent most of the game in her own little world. Big surprise, huh? She made two contributions to the game -
She threw the ball in here (look to the left of Landan, LOL)
And got to kick it back into play once :)
Otherwise, you might find her like this -
The weather this morning was great! I'm sure by Brady's game this afternoon, it will be hot again. We did stop by for donuts on the way home - figured we should take advantage of being up and out of the house so early on a Saturday morning.
