Game 1 — vs. Green Ninjas

First game of the 2014 Soccer season and first ever game for the Pleasant Hill Fireballs. In fact, first game of competitive Soccer for most of the boys. It was the first time all 8 boys, both Coaches and our first qualified Referee had been to the same session and everyone was very excited.

After some eventful practice sessions over the last few weeks, it was great to see EVERYONE try very hard and show off the skills they had learned over the last few weeks.

The boys focus (not playing with the goalposts, not play–fighting and not picking grass) was fantastic and there was great sportsmanship at the end.

Everyone was very impressive in their own way:

  • Noah H. — super defending & passing
  • Cole W. — two fantastic powerful goals
  • Jack D. — good fighting for the ball
  • Bryson B. — great dribbling
  • Rocco B. — brave, tough performance
  • Travis S. — excellent kick–offs and throw–ins
  • Bryson W. — strong tackling & ball winning
  • Isaac K. — amazing run, shot & goal

We managed to win one game and narrowly lost the other. A great start to the year. Thank you to the Green Ninjas for a fun game.
