Deja Vu

I've been inactive due to some traveling and a weekend of soccer. At this point, I appear to be stuck in an endless loop of losing to the same U-16 team in penalty kicks in the finals of soccer tournaments. Two weekends in a row, same team, same loss. Strange. However, positive notes to take away were:
  • We did not give up a single goal all weekend - 4 games, 0 goals. The final was 0-0 and went to PK's. Half the time we played with a back-up goalie who is not trained at all. I didn't keep a tally on shots but I remember 5 or less that even came close.
  • We scored 11 goals in 4 games.
  • We did both of these with 12 players - 1 sub. That is not an easy task.
  • I saw my team play their best game of the year on Sunday morning. It was good to see them click. Now they just need to do it when the cup is on the line.

Sounds like you got a good group of kids there. U16, getting ready for college recruiting? Any thoughts of getting some to spend thier time at RPI?

Haven't had any college recruiting talks with these guys. Some of them can play though, so if they were interested in being an engineer...
