Warning: there may quite a few soccer pics (catching up), and a little well earned mom bragging below.
Yahoo! They won their first tournament (with Avalanche) this summer in the LaRoca Cup. Playing hard, after losing their first game in the four game tournament, they stepped it up and turned it around to win the rest. Great smiles on their faces with such an accomplishment.
This was a tough one, but they did it again in the challenging Sparta Cup. Coming in as the underdog against Sparta (Sophie and Sage’s old team), they played their hearts out and took first! It was so fun to watch, Sophie made the first score.
Class act coaches! They build character, team playing, and respect, while developing great soccer players. Thanks Coach Jimmie (gentle giant) and Katie!
A sweet frozen custard celebration at Nielsen’s for Sophie’s hat trick and Sage’s many assists! Trevor’s always there to cheer his sisters on, and vice versa.
Sophie’s smile after a tough score. She’s pretty stoic on the field and takes the game serious although she’s loving it. She doesn’t make a big deal after she scores, but every once in awhile, after battling through and making a tough score, you see this great look on her face. Way to go Soph, with your killer left foot!
congratulating her with some high 5’s
off to win the ball, speedy girl!
using her whole body.
Hmmm, I wonder what team the background parents are rooting for? They don’t look too excited :)
Dynamic Duo, the two forwards. Sophie may be the top scorer, but Sage helps with great assists and goals. They read each other so well on the field, it must be a twin thing :).
Back rubs after a game (Sage), getting ready for the rewards ceremony
On a roll, they won the Mayor’s Cup. Winning gold in all their summer tournaments. Well done girls, and great coaching Jimmie!
