The boys decided to play Pride Soccer again this year. Peter was able to play with his team from last year and was excited to have coach Stenhaug again. He especially liked having Dallin on his team again. The season started out well for Peter but by the end he was happy to be done playing with his team. There were lots of kids who didn't know how to play soccer well and their team seemed to lose almost every game. Even though he was frustrated with his team he still had moments where he was really enjoying playing soccer. He played center midfield most of the season. Most people underestimate what Peter can do because he is small. Many parents were surprised by how fast he was and how aggressive he played against players twice his size.
We decided to put Andrew on a different team this year since his coach last year was not our favorite. He had a pretty good team this year and really seemed to like coach Zaccaria. Andrew played mostly defense this year and showed some real improvement in his aggressiveness. He was having such a great season until game 3. It was a beautiful day and he started the game as right defender. In the 10 minutes I got to see him play he had some beautiful plays. It seemed to happen so fast as he fell over one of his players who had fallen right behind him. As he fell he slammed his elbow against the ground and heard a crack. He immediately knew it was broken. I took him to the ER right away and sure enough...he broke his arm. He was out for the rest of the season, which was a total bummer.
