Catching up, and blowing away

It’s Buttercups soccer time again, and I’ve been remiss because the games have fallen opposite Hooper’s Cub Scouts or other scheduling issues. The first game was actually the second, the real first game having been postponed by rain. (We’re in a drought, but we’ve had a game postponed and two practices canceled by rain.)

I forget which was which, but the ‘Cups won one of the first two games 3-0 and tied the other one 3-3. Then, earlier tonight, they took on the Red Hot Chili Peppers, a team that in the past has given them fits, and blew them away, 8-0. Victoria spent most of an uneventful second half in goal before scoring the final goal on a sliding kick. She also had an assist earlier in the game.

The midseason break comes a week early because Easter is early this year, so the Buttercups head into the break 2-0-1.

  1. Last week’s game on Tuesday was the tie after the other team came back from an 0-3 deficit. Wednesday the ‘cups won 3-0.

    We’re sorry we had to miss this Tuesday’s game, but Abby’s continuous smile during the whole school presentation told me we made the right decision. She even came to me when it was over and said, “I just couldn’t stop smiling no matter what I did!”
