{We Won!}

can you say craaaaaaaazy soccer game!!:)
last night was by far the most intense game we have watched all season. but i guess that's the way championship games are supposed to be right?:)

although some of us stayed calm and cool!:)

it is so much fun watching the girls mature in their sport and really learn how to pass, talk to each other on the field and play as a team. a lot different than beginning soccer when it's kind of like watching a swarm of bees buzzing around the ball!!:) these girls are good! and they try so hard and play with so much passion and i love that!

riley scored the only goal that night and we were ahead for quite awhile, then orange finally scored one too.  since we were tied at the end, we played two 5 minute tie breakers and we were still tied! now it went to penalty kicks!! they line up 5 shooters for each team and have them take a shot! whoever has the most at the end wins! can i just say i am soooo glad riley's not the goalie!!!:)

getting penalty kick instructions from the referees

riley went first for her team and scored!!!
dave was down by the goal and i was pacing around like a crazy person!
can't even believe i snapped this shot....don't even remember doin it!:)
we won in penalty kicks 3-2!
go purple!!!!!
bad pic of jane.....she would have killed me if i posted it so i had to crop it out.
bummed about the pics i got tonight.:(
i'll blame it on the lighting and the excitement.
nothing like the ones when jane won last year.
oh well...

rileys' last year playing rec soccer and it was her best one yet.

we are so proud of you and we love you!
