Once again, Hooper and Victoria’s games were opposite each other, so I didn’t get to see V. play. The Buttercups lost to the Hotshots, 2-1. They tell me one of the Hotshots’ goals was a fluke, Unfortunately, flukes still count.

The Fusion won 5-2 against the Fire, which I thought was a better team in terms of ball control and skill. But they didn’t get off all that many shots, and the Fusion’s main shooters were more accurate from long range. Hooper played two quarters, second and fourth. He was asked to go in in the third quarter but didn’t want to. He played the fourth quarter but was dragging tail, although he had one beautiful shot go just wide. When I got him home he was complaining of a sore throat, and he turned out to be running a temp of just under 101, so I guess that explains it.

The Fusion have a makeup game scheduled for Wednesday. The ‘Cups don’t play again until next Saturday.

One note about the weather. The rain hotline was updated at 7:05 this morning to announce that all games at Bryan Park would be played as scheduled. By 7:30 it was raining, and it kept raining (heavily so for a couple of brief intervals) until well after Hooper’s game ended. Bryan Park officials are usually very protective of their turf, so to speak, so, given the forecast, which called for rain and perhaps thunderstorms overnight and this morning, I was surprised they played. They may regret it: Field 6C was in something of a mess by the time the Fusion and Fire were done. I was even more surprised that the ‘Cups played on Field 5 — it’s their normal field, but it was just reseeded two weeks ago.
