Big Al started the season frustrated because she wasn't playing forward, and hadn't scored - so she decided to try to get a yellow card. This weekend Brian took her to her games and she scored two goals (one off her left leg), but despite getting a bunch of fouls this season she has not gotten her yellow card. Look at the pure joy on her face with her goal.
Last weekend they played well in a tournament, but several girls got banged up and are now nursing broken bones, and others are trying not to limp too noticeably. Next weekend we have the state tournament, but I don't have high expectations for it - her team played with only 10 girls today and 0 subs - not good odds. I think after the success of this past weekend though we can pretty much be certain she is going to want to try out again for next fall.
