So- the Nike Cup is over, and we are drained, but feeling okay. Both Jacob's and Nathan's teams came in second place. Jacob's team had a very tough time in the Championship game, and they just couldn't pull off a win. It was a difficult game to watch, as they just weren't playing their best. Jake personally had a fairly good game....he did some pretty footwork, megged a guy, (which always makes him happy) made some dependable crosses to our strikers, and even got a shot off himself, but unfortunately hit the post.
Nathan's team played okay, but won their last game, 5-1. It was almost a shutout, but the opposing team scored their first and only goal in the last minute of play. They came in second, because their overall points earned in the tournament were a little short of the team they lost to.
All in all, it was a good weekend.
This is a shot of Nathan in goal. He plays in goal pretty consistantly for at least half of each game. The other half, he is usually playing defense.
