Midweek Soccer Report

Charles drives downfield

Charles had a good game this evening, with his team winning 4-3.

We got there a bit early so Charles tired himself out warming up before the game. It ended for Charles with someone side-swiping him and Dad carrying him off the field. I noticed then that he was quite hot and sweaty, which is not a normal state for Charles. After a bit of rest and some water, he was ready to go.

Charles played well, making several drives down field on purpose (as far as I could tell). He was following the ball better, although he was still a bit inactive as goalie (luckily, he only had to defend once and managed to kick the ball out of the scrum in front of the goal). Charles even scored a goal, although the light was so bad by then that I don’t have a picture of it.

Charles’ team grabbed a 3-0 lead early on. The other team managed to tie the game in the second half. Near the end of the game Charles scored the fourth goal, sealing the victory.

It was not an unalloyed victory, however, as there was a bit of a mixup with the snacks (Charles’ team stampeded over to the other team’s snack dispenser and Charles resented having to walk over to the correct one). Charles also said that he didn’t have fun because there was too much running (in a soccer game! imagine that!) and his legs got tired. My suggestion was more exercise, which didn’t improve his mood. Hopefully he will have forgotten this by the next game.
