St Mike's Junior Boys - Annual Tournament

The St Michael's High School annual tournament was held today.  I was able to see 2 games when I wasn't in class.  This morning I wasn't sure what to expect for their first game.  Honestly, I didn't think they were ready to play from what i have seen so far.

At the end of the day the team had lost their three matches 0-1, 0-2 and 0-1  BUT they didn't look lost on the field and they have a place to work forward from.  Some of the boys are hard-nosed competitors and any coach loves to see that.  They had chances, challenged for most balls and have a solid GK to back them up.  It would have been nice to see their spirits pumped up with a goal, but it was not to be.

It's an exciting time because the team has moved from the preparation stage to competition.  A few more sessions would have been good, but we'll see what the change in scenery brings to the program.

Coaches Lucchetta and Luppino want to fix up their shape a bit on Monday because they play again Tuesday.  I wish there was more time, but that's high school soccer.

Go Mustangs!
