Let the Games Begin!

Sadly, the snow day that closed school the Wednesday before spring break also cancelled opening day for the Spring Season. So, in our opinion it was not worth it to play our first scheduled game.

The teams regrouped after spring break, however, and the last 2 Fridays we have seen some great soccer, big crowds and a festival atmosphere at each host school. Here are some great action shots from the first two weeks - thanks to all the coaches for sending these in!

This coming Friday, April 23 marks week 3 of the season, and we've got some very big games on tap:

Barnum @ Newlon
Munroe @ Knapp
Eagleton @ Cheltenham
Cowell @ Brown

In addition, both the boys and girls Select Team seasons are well underway, and we are playing so well! The girls had their best game of the season this past Friday in Highlands Ranch, losing a close game to Real Colorado, last year's league champions. All the girls on the team played great, and our opponents even named second half goalie Ruby Cortez the game's MVP for all the great stops she made. Way to go girls!

The boys played a bigger, older Boulder Force team. We worked so hard from start to finish on a field that seemed like it was a mile long, and every one of our players should be proud of his performance. It's not easy playing against 7th graders, and it's obvious that all the hard work in practice is paying off on the weekends.
