District Weekend Update 1

My U-16 team played their first game in the district tournament today. It was one of the most physical teams we have played all year. 1 red card and about 4 yellows. The red card was issued to the other team (thankfully). We ended up winning 1-0 which is all we need to do. The state championship is all about advancing. It doesn't matter how ugly it gets - you always have games where you play really well and then you have games where you just have to slog through battle. This was the latter. Our next game is tomorrow.

If you want to players to learn the NJ style of physical play, just call Mark "soup" Supplee, and have him as a guest trainer. As you know, quite possible the most "physical" (some may call dirty) player from Jersey...EVER. Although, I seem to remember you mixing it up as good as anyone...like a sniper back there in the sweeper spot...

I was never a dirty player. I have no idea what you are referring to.

the other team got their share of yellows as well. It was split in half I think.

Thanks for all the well wishes.
