I don’t have a team picture to place here yet, but Allysa’s U11 Soccer team placed second in the Thompson’s Fall Classic It was another dis-appointing game. They lost 1-0 because of a quick score by the opposing team about midway through the second half. The fought their little hearts out trying to score and kept shooting either just outside the goal, or ringing the goal posts. It was another one of those games where the team appeared to dominate the game, but still lost.
The tournament was based on a point system and they took second being down by only 2 tournament point so they shouldn’t be too upset. The went into their last game 6 points ahead of the competition. The Nixa Raptors received 8 tournament points for shutting us out. If we had scored a goal we would have won the tournament by 6 points. They played excellent soccer. Allysa assisted on one goal and missed the shot on three others. She played on the best soccer games I have seen her play on Saturday and Sunday.
I am one proud dad.
