The Cardinals finished the season UNDEFEATED; 9 -0! The boys ended the season with the BEST defensive performance of the whole year! Offense was spurred on by Max leading on his first scamper for a TD to begin each half. The Chippewas defense were VERY gracious allowing Max to make his run for the end zone in grand style!!! It was a very impressive feat, as the team is made up of ALL 5th graders and a 4th grader playing in a 5th – 6th grade league. The season ending party on Saturday night at Peter Piper Pizza was capped off with gifts to Max and his family from the WHOLE team which was paid from a couple garage sales and a car wash. We are blessed with great kids who have proven they are CHAMPIONS on the field and more importantly, OFF the field!

The Lightning are 5-1 with one game remaining before the Christmas break. We had a great 5-3 victory over the previous unbeaten Xtreme on Saturday and avenged our only loss of the season. So, we would be tied for 1st in the league. Christian (as he prefers to be called) is doing awesome. He is playing anywhere from 10-20 minutes per game at the forward position. No goals yet, but he has great footwork and is not afraid to mix it up with the other team! During halftime of one game, I asked for volunteers to play goalie in the 2nd half. He was the only one who stepped up and said he wanted to be goalie. I told him that we need to work on it in practice before I threw him into a game time situation. He works so hard at practice and always has a huge smile on his face. He’s great with his teammates and they love having him on their team.

She is a natural athlete and is rocking it! She’s only been able to come to one practice so far but she met our coach, got a new stick and met the girls. They all loved her, she fit in perfectly. And she was scoring goals left and right! I ran next to her for a couple drills so she could get the hang of where to be and all that jazz. Then I made her go alone and she did so well! Sh’s picking it up so quickly!
We have a tournament on Nov 21st that she’s coming to watch.
