Weekend Soccer Tournament

This past weekend, Alan and I headed to Edinboro for the PA West Soccer Tournament. WOW!!! That one of the largest tournaments I've ever seen!!! All ages and levels of soccer. If you love soccer, then you were in the right place.

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....
