We're 4-0-1!

I've been so busy lately that it seems the only blog entries I have time for are soccer-related. I keep saying I'm going to make the time and get back to other topics, but it just hasn't happened yet.

My soccer team won again last night, 2-1, making us 4-0-1 on the season. It was a good game and I feel like I'm improving a bit each time I'm out there. Not that we track such things, but last night I had my first assist on a goal, which was fun.

After the game, I said to my teammates that one of the things I liked about us was how enthusiastic we were to get out on the field. I noticed during the game that our opponents were having to coax substitutes off the sidelines to come in for them. With us, it's the other way around.

As for the one tie we've had, we confirmed last night that the direct kick (i.e., a kick awarded on a penalty that goes straight into the goal without touching a player) on which our opponents tied us should not have taken place under our league's rules, so we're protesting the decision. We might end up 5-0.
