Season ender

Filed under: Tigers,Victoria — Lex @ 5:25 pm

The Tigers played their final game of the season today and went out winners. The final was Tigers 13, Pumpkins (no, I’m not making that up) 7, but it was over early: They led 6-0 after the first quarter, and one Tiger, K., made another six goals in the second quarter to put it away.

V. played the first and third quarters, scoring no goals but once again playing inspired defense. Late in the third quarter she slid in from the side to block what would have been a certain short-range goal.

Her coach had lots of compliments for her team play, attitude, work ethic and improvement. And she had a lot of fun and is planning to play again in the “spring” (practice actually begins in late February, which is early enough in the year here for the weather to be pretty treacherous). I think playing also has helped her confidence: She has learned that if she tries hard at something she’s not (yet) good at, she can get better, a lesson she has applied to other things, including ballet and reading.
