Read the Team Update blog to follow Makena and her teammates throughout their soccer season! - Claire
This week in soccer I had two soccer practices! They were really fun! We did stretching and warm-up activities such as passing the ball in a group of four and keep-away. Towards the end of practice my coach has us do a scrimmage game! There is a green team and a purple team and every practice my coach switches up the teams! I also had two soccer games this weekend! I normally only have one game per weekend but my team participated in a tournament which means more games and more competition. The first game my team put forth lots of effort and although we lost 0-1 overall our performance as a team was very cooperative and encouraging to each other. Our second game of the weekend was the one that determines whether we move on in the tournament or don't. We played a hard match against our opponent. The score was 3-0 and I was very proud of my team! We had great passes, dribbling and our goals scored were interesting and entertaining to watch from the defensive line which I played that day. We will continue on in the tournament now! Today in one hour I will be going to another soccer practice and am excited to see how it goes!
