First Game of the Season

Warm ups.  Very important.  Gets the team working together and gets those muscles ready to run and kick.

(Especially) for never playing on a soccer team, Jeff did a great job coaching his first game.  I even think he had some fun. :)  It took him a minute and one of the other dads to set up the goal, but we noticed the other team struggled with it too.  He got the kids warmed up and kept them on track during the game. 
Number 9 was my favorite little player.  He made good, long kicks (too bad no team mates were on the other end to receive the ball) and was a fast little runner.  This is one of the few things I've seen him work really hard at without getting frustrated.  I am loving it. 

It was a great game with the score volleying back and forth between us and them.  In the end I think we were down by one.  The kids all played great, listened to Coach and worked hard.  Jeff said they were doing even better in practice last night.  Can't wait for the next game!
