Soccer Report: Bragging Rights

Click on photos for full size image.
The weekend was beautiful, and Saturday included Isaiah's second soccer game of the season. In their first game last weekend they drove an hour and a half away and got their passes handed to them in a 7-0 loss. This weekend they played the other hometown team at home and were ready to get things back on track.

After warm-ups...

And pre-game with the ref...

...they went to work. There was a strong wind blowing straight down the field. In the first half Isaiah's team pressed the other team's goal constantly, but they were kicking into the wind, so no goals were scored.

The second half was a different story. With the wind at their backs Isaiah's team quickly found the range and scored six goals. Isaiah, who was actually on defense, took a long shot from the far right sideline and found the top left corner of the net for his first goal of the season. Beauty.

Victory is sweet, especially when you shut out your friends. Bragging rights started today in earnest, I'm sure, as they all got back to school.
