Corner kick by Abbi - glad to have put the red ribbon in - made it easier to find her with the camera. She totally loves this game (even skips the pool to practice in the yard & unbelievably run sprints!)
She ALWAYS wants the ball - HATES playing defence - but is somehow developing a love for GOALIE (of all positions) I hate when they play goalie because the stress is just more than I can handle - if they score - it looks bad on her/him - but she enjoys the challenge.
This is one of the RARE action shots - this guys is really not there yet.
A shady spot in the BLAZING heat between games (and with a snowcone no less!)
Still my favorite part of the game - shaking hands and "good game"
So why include this shot - those who were there will understand - for those who weren't - notice how Abbi's knee is tangled up with the other players? This shows her aggressive play - no fear - go get that ball attitude! LOVE it! No violence just great play.
The coolest trophy EVER!
The fake smile: I threatened him within an inch of his life for this. They were NOT HAPPY because they came in second but only because the other team cheated. I know this sounds like an excuse but when our coach (head of the league) says they cheated - pretty sure they cheated. However, we must lose with dignity and grace - and suck it up! As my mother once told me (actually a million+ times, Life's not fair!)
