Andrea had an interesting soccer season this year. For many of their games, they only had one extra person. For at least 3 (out of 7) games they did not have enough players and they had to forfeit two games because of it.
Today, only seven of the twelve needed players arrived for the game. The game was forfeited and a scrimmage was arranged. Players from the other team played with our girls.
After a 30 minute first half (instead of 45 minutes) the coaches joined in. The game became a lot more fun. The girls from both teams smiled and giggled together. Goalies would swap out whenever they felt like it. The coaches played hard. And, believe it or not, our team (with a few subs) managed to make a few goals. I am not sure if we ended up tied or one point ahead.
When the game ended, parents agreed it was a wonderful way to finish this season.
