Buttercups 4, Sharks 3

First, the important news: The Buttercups’ new jerseys are yellow, meaning that the team cheer, “Yellow, white, Buttercups fight!” isn’t totally incongruous anymore (last year’s jerseys were green). But they’re trimmed with black. I suggested changing the cheer to “Yellow, black, Buttercups attack!” but didn’t get any takers.

The Buttercups have added Victoria’s longtime friend A. to their roster after A.’s team broke up. A. wasted no time making an impact, scoring three of the ‘Cups’ four goals. V. left the game early after taking a poke in the eye so bad that we took her to the pediatrician. Good news: It was only a poke. The cornea was uninjured.

For those of you keeping score at home, yes, we did play the Sharks two weeks in a row. We’ll play them a third time, too. There are only four teams left in the rec-league girls under-11 league, so we’ll play two teams three times each and the third team twice.
