Soccer Mites Team 1
TEAMWORK was the name of the game for Mites Team 1 on Sunday against St. Amelia’s. After 2 unanswered goals, Brooklyn S. scored the first goal of the season with a high kick over the St. Amelia’s goalie. After some serious celebration on the sidelines, the Knights stayed focused. St. Amelia’s answered back with another goal. Solid defense and passing by Jude V., Cara M., Caden S., Monica K., and Cecelia D., enabled the strong offensive force of Noah Y., Ian B., Michael Q., and Brooklyn S. to move the ball back down the field. The Knights were determined to win and not let St. Amelia’s offensive strike go unanswered. Noah Y. put an two more goals in the net to tie the score at 3. St. Amelia’s would not go down without a fight and despite some phenomenal saves by Carly A. and Ian B., they were able to squeak two more goals in. Knights Mite Team 1 wins in attitude, endurance, and teamwork despite falling to St. Amelia’s on the scoreboard this week. We look forward to our next game on Wednesday at 5:00 pm.
