Just a quick note to long-time followers with the result of today's big game. Henry and his Varsity soccer team were in second place, one point behind the league leader, going into today's game against the team at the top of the table (in soccer, you get three points for a win, one point for a tie and no points for a loss). They were down 1-0 at the half and then gave up another goal about 10 minutes into the second half. But the boys never gave up. They converted a corner kick mid-way through the second half and then just kept attacking the opponent's goal. They tied the game when Henry (he's #6 in the front front row) took a shot that the goalie blocked but couldn't grab, and another boy (Miguel, #17) pounded it in. With just two minutes left, Henry took the ball on the right wing and made a beautiful long pass to Miguel. The goalie had to come out and Miguel, with incredible composure, chipped it over the goalie's head, and it bounced on into the goal. The fans went wild! We have nine seniors on our team, and, even though the boys have an incredible amount of talent (2-3 of them are talking of playing in college or trying out for a team in Mexico), they have never managed to win a league championship. We're all hoping this is their year.
