I want to take a moment to share how proud we are of the boys’ performance today. Under difficult circumstances of only one sub and a hot day, they gave it their all. And they won.
In the beginning of the season, I spoke about team first and it was on full display today. Jacob and Lucas have played very little goalie in the careers, and both were outstanding. Boys were playing different positions with maximum effort. When someone struggled, a teammate was there to support. When someone was exhausted and could not breathe, someone filled in his role.
In the beginning of the second half, there was a 45 second stretch of passing that was at a professional level. I made the comment that it was like “Picasso” out there. After the game, the angry coach from the other team came to me saying that he heard my comment and absolutely agreed it was magical.
We now head on the road for two difficult games, but it is clear to us that the boys will rise to the challenge and give it their all. See you on Tuesday.
Matthew, Ben, Michael
