Soccer season is over – for now. We finished up with a tournament this weekend, and I’m now looking forward to having a little bit of free time.
This was a frustrating season. We probably had the potentially best team in years, but I just couldn’t bring it together. While there were flashes of brilliance and some really good matches, it seems that too many of them were “really close – but not enough.” We had a few wins, but it was not a winning season.
Our biggest problem was/is offense. We just seem to have trouble getting the girls to pull the trigger. We can get the ball up to that end of the field, but then they want to pass it around and not put pressure on their net. That will definitely be a priority for the coming spring.
We now get a break for a few weeks, but then comes swimming practices (something new for my daughter, but it should be great for her knee), and Ave is going to try out for basketball.
I’ve got the day off, so I’m going to split a pile of firewood and catch up on some sleep later with a good nap.
