Challenge Cup Soccer Tournament

This weekend, Andrea had a soccer tournament.  It was different than others we have gone to because instead of earning tropheys, they earned the chance to play in another tournament next month.

We had taken hot drinks and wore many layers.  The IMG_9507_sharerestrooms  and cars were the only place to get out of the wind for a few minutes.  We were very thankful that no one planned a tailgating party.  We went out for lunch and took our time eating it while we warmed up!

Andrea’s team played hard.  Even though it was so cold, the first day’s games were the most fun to watch.  Both teams were evenly matched, so the girls worked to earn points. They ended up with a draw on the first game and 1-0 for the second.

The final game was not so much fun to watch.  The girls played a team that played mean; 3 yellow cards and the referee kept talking to the girls. The girls even praised their team members for the yellow cards!

It was hard, but the our girls played fair and did their best.  We won 1-0! Once points were added up at the end of the tournament, we won this round and will be playing another tournament in a few weeks!
