Saturday Soccer Update

Yesterday was our day that was packed full of soccer, soccer, and then some more soccer. CED had two games just south of Denver, so she and I and the two little ones headed up there for the day. Unfortunately, the games didn't turn out so great, but CED is learning how to direct her team and take control of the field. If only her teammates would start to listen... JAD had a BIG game yesterday morning. The other team won on a bogus handball call - they were given a penalty kick for something they clearly did, but the ref called on us. I don't think anyone can speak of it yet without getting really, really angry. JED also had a game and his team won without a problem. We finished up the night by attending the Colorado Rapids v. Real Salt Lake game. It was an exciting night - JAD and CED got to be a part of the pre-game parade and walked around the field with a couple of hundred other kids and coaches. The game was fun to watch (especially since I understand SO much more about soccer now!). The Rapids ended the 90 minutes winning the game. And then Real Salt Lake ended up tying the game in the last minute of extra time. Disappointing! We sat near some very excited RSL fans; they sure are spirited and enjoy supporting their team. I think everyone had a great time - the older kids are all talking that they would like to definitely go again several times next year.
