I've never been to a soccer tournament before so I didn't know what to expect, needless to say I've never been to Edinboro so that was a driving feat in itself! Starting Friday night, we had a game. So I took off work to get there early and find my way around. When we got on campus - Holy Cow was all I could say. There were soccer fields at the entrance and all the way around the school campus - 26 fields in all!! Figure 26 fields, 2 teams per field, and the number of players = a major parking mess!
We played Friday against another Pittsburgh team and tied. Then up early on Saturday morning (6am!) for an 8:45 game against our local Washington team. Here Alan is pushing forward against a girl on their team. (I saw alot of girls on the boys teams - you go!!)
We won that game. Then a game at 3 against Hopewell. We won that game too!! When all was said and done, we made it to the finals! Possibly 3 games on Sunday.
We went shopping in between - YEA!!! Here is Alan in the hotel room - notice the laptop and my scrappin tool caddy in the background? Don't leave home without it!!
Well, up on Sunday at 5:45 (UGH!!!) and first game at 7:30 against Brentwood - what a roudy bunch of parents. They had an air horn, mega phone and silly clothes. We won - the first of the finals. Next game at 11:15 against Kinzua. We lost...what a bummer. It was a tough game. All in all we had a great time. I think Alan had his time to shine and had a wonderful experience.
Thanks for stopping....more goodies to come....
