Corwin Soccer

Corwin had his last game today. It was the second game with the opponents, this time on Corwin’s home field. The previous game had been a great game but this one wasn’t. The other team collapsed and Corwin’s team totally dominated. I thought it was going to be a tough game when very early on the opponents mounted a very strong attack just barely missing a score. But that seemed to exhaust them and it was downhill from there.

Corwin had to leave at half time for a violin recital and it was 5-1 by then. Corwin had some good defense. For some reason Corwin’s team was for once doing a generallly good job with long kicks, Corwin especially with some very nice boots dropping right in front of a teammate.

The opposing keeper had a hard job but at least once he just zoned out and let a score in. I could see he was very upset with himself afterwards. He did have quite a number of good stops but was just overwhelmed by a large number of shots on goal, including one which hit the cross post and then rolled in. I hadn’t seen anything like that since the days of games with herds of kicking players.
