Soccer: Week 5A: Wednesday Night Lights

In order to avoid a conflict with Friday night's Fall Festival at the South Mebane Elementary School (where most of the Strikers receive their indoctrination,) Friday's game was moved to Wednesday. Martinho's came to play.

If you've read any of my previous soccer posts from this season, you can probably see how this is going to end. Yup. The Strikers lost again, this time 6-2.

But with that being said, there was a noticeably improved level of play this week. So I am hopeful that the team will be able to win something this season.

Here's a near-goal shot by Tristan. It went wide to the right. Need to work on getting him to keep his toe down.
Here's Tristan taking control
And just a picture of Tristan, the sweaty athlete that he is
Zoë got her share of play too. Here she is keeping it away from a MartinhoJulia, Zoë, and Cameron, in an unaturally tight grouping, await the action
And just Zoë, basking in the twilight sun, with fierce concentration.

In case you're wondering about the title of this post, there will be a Week 5B. Weather permitting, the Strikers verse the Dragons at 11:15
