Another soccer bummer

My soccer team lost again last night and it wasn't pretty. It was a 4-0 drubbing, which is seriously disappointing because we played the better game, took the better shots, etc. etc. They took about four shots the whole game and all of them went in. We took about 20 and none of them went in. (Ok, maybe those numbers aren't quite right, but you get the point.)

Anyway, I was pretty happy with my performance for the most part. I played a decent first half and a solid second half. They had me at midfield for part of the first half. Oh lordy, I am so not a midfielder. I was happy to settle back into my role on the defense later in the game.

The game was definitely a physical one and I got beat up last night. I took a header and collided with a girl on the other team. Then not long after I jumped to deflect a ball off my chest but timed it wrong and the ball smacked me in the side of the head (I think I totally played it off as a header...or at least I hope so lol). Then a girl drilled a ball at the goal and I jumped in front of it and got nailed in the chest. They didn't score though so I guess it was worth it.

Anyway it was a fun game despite the outcome.

I'm super excited for spinning tonight! It's been way too long! Hope you all have awesome Thursdays!

That's one of the things about soccer (and chess incidentally). You can play the better game and it all goes to hell in a hay basket when you make a mistake or two. Such is life!!

It's like organized pinball. Sometimes the ball just doesn't fall to the flippers right.
