It has been a very busy week end in Soccer. And I am finding it hard to get back on track.
We won one and lost one and the one we lost was quite upsetting for every one. My son scored Saturday It was a two one win.
Sunday they got slaughtered. My son scored one but they came in with 6 quick ones. Our goalie didn't know what hit him. He had no defense around him.
Defense wasn't defending. Refs did not do a good job of reffing. We sustained lots of injuries. One of our players fell and the other team's boys (seemed deliberately) stepped on his face leaving a huge cleat mark. Could have been worse. Another boy slid into the feet of our player knocking him down without touching the ball, and he got away with it. They kept pushing from behind going into football tackles which I don't understand because soccer is supposed to be a non contact sport. The refs ignored it.But if we ever do such things we get penalized for it. So I am not sure what was going on but it sure didn't look good.
My son, a forward, never got close to a ball as panic set in and the game degraded. Had we pulled up our socks we could have done it even then but seems the will was gone. My son was pretty upset at what he saw transpire on the field and said it was very unprofessional.lol
Well my heart is also heavy for these boys They are good boys.(for the most part lol) If they don't get up and at em, and psychologically overcome the slump they are in, I'm afraid the rest of the games will not be very good for us as we have strong opposition teams to beat.
Hope you all had a great week end. We will try to keep our chins up this end.
