Andrea played her last game with Flames on Saturday. Â She will try out for high school soccer in a few days!
She has played with the sameÂ set of the girls–with few changes–for the last few years. Â Her team has improved a lot!Â Instead of a bunch of individual players, they work as a team now. Andrea has improved in her ability also. Â She is a much more confident player!
Her coach wrote a note expressing how hard the team worked this season. HeÂ told us that this year the U14 girls’ teamÂ won 18 times. Â They had 10 shutouts in a row (which is 700 minutes of scoreless soccer 🙂 ). Â They lost two times and tied twice. Â TheÂ teamÂ scored 44 goals, but only had 5 goals get past them.
As we watched Andrea improve, we also had the privilege to see a diverse group of girls from different schools and backgrounds grow also as a team. I am praying that Andrea’s new team will provide her with some strong friends that encourage and push each other to become better soccer players and young ladies.
