She Shoots, She Scores!!!

The high school soccer season started here yesterday.  Our oldest grand daughter is a freshman and made the jr. varsity this year.  For those of you who have followed this blog, you know that is a big deal.  Our high school plays in the highest classification (7A, although they're not really that big), and they have finished 1st or 2nd in the state three of the last four years.  "Scooter" has been plagued with a high ankle sprain since November, but it seems to be getting better now.  She will just have to have both ankles taped and wear a brace on the left one this season.  As a result, she has not been able to practice all of the time.  That means she is starting at the bottom of the roster...second team, junior varsity.
The game started at 4:00, so I was not able to attend.  I got a call about 6:00 from our daughter.  Our team jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the first half, so the second team got to play most of the second half.  Scooter scored a goal!!!  Not only that, but she did it with a left footed shot!  That's what you call making the most of an opportunity.  Next week, they play at 5:30.  I will be there, on the front row, with the big lens camera.  There WILL be photos to share next week, I promise.

Game On!


  1. I have never enjoyed any sporting event as much as watching my kids play soccer. I will be looking for those action shots. Go Scooter!
