Okie… since Richard said in his email (to everybody) that I will be updating the blog on each of our soccer outings, I reckon I better start then.
Last Tuesday we won our first game. The final score was 2-1 – Yay! The other team scored the first goal, it was a messy/lucky goal.. but still. We retaliated by getting them back with a “practiced” roll-in. Andre passed the ball all the way from our end of the field, Richard (the Golden Foot) lightly tapped the ball with the inside of his foot and deflected it into the back of the net – it was wicked sick!! He didn’t even need to see where the net (or where the goalie) was, it’s like he has eyes in the back of his head.
The game was pretty intense, both teams had plenty of chances to score but…. about 5 minutes before the game ended…. Golden Foot did it again!! Marcelo was at the halfway line, he got the ball, he saw Goldie in front of the 5 yard box, Marcelo then flicked the ball, the ball bounced once then BAM!! Goldie kicked the ball while it was still in the air and it found the back of the net (or tarp)… and the crowd (Carol and Christine) went nuts.. “woooo..!!! yay..!!!!”
All of us played hard that night and it was a well deserved win! Let’s keep it up guys!!!
