Another Soccer Game!

My dad is hobbling around right now with a hurt back. Before Drew's soccer game last Saturday, he decided that he would show Drew how to stay back in the goal when he plays goalie. While he and Drew were playing, all of his teammates joined them and Drew said "try to make it past my Poppi, he is good". So, daddy had about 6 little boys kicking balls to him and he was blocking them. When he straightened his back to walk to his chair he knew something was wrong.

Look at my daddy go! Drew had so much fun playing soccer with Poppi!

During the game, Drew and his teammates played awesome! We were playing the number one team in the league and we beat them 9 - 0. Drew scored three goals in this game - one on a free kick. Connor also scored a goal during this game, and Israel almost did! One of the parents on the other team asked the ref if there was a time when he could ask the other team not to score. The ref reminded her that these were 6, 7, and 8 year olds, and he couldn't very well do that! We were all excited for our guys, and we can't wait to see how well they play this week. They are really starting to work together and I can't get over how much they have all learned this season!

The other team is taking a corner kick and our guys (red) are guarding the goal. I loved Drew's intensity here!!

Drew takes the free kick - he scored one of his goals here!

Drew played goalie during the third quarter. I was so worried, but he did awesome. He even blocked a hard kicked ball and ended up with a strawberry above his knee. He never got upset (he rubbed it a little - okay a good bit), but mom was a little worried! The crowd was cheering for him, so he wasn't about to show any pain! That's my little athlete!!
