So, the soccer….
The team have been doing pretty well so far. They drew their first match, although they were winning 2-1 after losing the entire game, only for the ref to overrun by almost 10 mins and the other team equalising. Oh well, that’s soccer I guess…
But the next match, in Kamloops, was a win, 5-1, with “The Tank” not scoring, but beautifully setting up his team mate on 3 occasions.
Then, last weekend, another 5-1 win. We were comfortably up by half time, so, looked good.
And then panic set in, as I turned to the missus and she uttered the dreaded phrase, “Oh no! Go and tell them, go on!”….
He’s been on about going in goal for ages and you could see as he called out to us from the other side of the pitch, cheeky grin on his face, that he was determined to give it a go. He’s good at being an ice hockey keeper, but a soccer goalie is not what he’s cut out for.
Luckily most of the action was up the other end, but he did make a couple of good saves and didn’t do too bad. But, it was the longest second half yet….
Unbeaten so far then, they seem to be getting a lot better as we go through the season. We’re looking forward to some rematches coming up over the next week, to avenge the IceBreaker Tournement we played a few weeks back….
