go for the goal

Last week Elise and Amy joined the girl's soccer team.
Or, if you believe Coach Mark (from Ireland) the FOOTBALL team.

They practiced a grand total of six hours before their first game this Saturday.

The game was scheduled for
7:30 am.

Decisions like that should be illegal.

the Knights warm up

They played against the toughest team in the league.
No, they didn't win, but they played strong.

Amy takes the ball down the field

half-time pep talk by Coach Micah
(Elise is standing on the right)

For a small school, 18 girls on the team is a pretty great turn-out!

Elise plays defense - she's the one facing forward

Amy on offense with the ball

"Football is all very well as a game for rough girls,
but is hardly suitable for delicate boys."
~Oscar Wilde

rough girls?
what have we done?!?
