First Soccer Games of the Year

Date April 9, 2011

What a difference a season makes. Alana largely just “chased the action” in the fall, but she actually got in and played in her first game this year:

She scored at least three goals, and any goal (by anyone) warranted a celebration:

She even paid attention to her coach!

Benton’s game was a couple of hours later. He’s right back in his groove there.

He played the entire second half and the lack of off-season conditioning started to show. And…he’s got a 1.5-hour baseball practice later this afternoon!
