Alas, another weekend has come and gone, but not without some great moments:
Sea Wolves Win! Sea Wolves Win! - Madi's soccer team, the Sea Wolves [what exactly is a "sea wolf," anyway], played two games this weekend, winning both of them. Satutrday's game was a 5-1 victory, which saw Madi playing keeper for the entire second half, a position she loves to play. Keepers run in the family as both Josh and Megan were keepers in their day. Sunday's game as a practice game, but with the same result as Saturday, a 3-0 win. At this point Madi's team is undefeated, or as Madi likes to say it, "undefeatable." [Yes, Josh had to correct her a bit...] This is a rare place for Madi as she has never been on a winning team, in fact her team last year won all of two games all season. This year is a different story, as they are 5-0 now. You can follow all the Sea Wolves action here [look under "Jeff Hamen," her coach].
Capo Cats Heartbreak Loss - On Saturday, the Capo Cats 15U team took on the Trabuco Hills High freshman team at Capo. It turned out to be a pitchers duel, with Trabuco coming out on top 1-0. We definitely had our opportunities to score, leaving eight runners on base. The issue was timely hitting. It was 0-0 going into the top of the seventh, when we gave up an unearned run on an error turning an inning ending double play. We came up in the bottom of seven where Josh got a lead off single, followed by a hit batsman. First and second two outs and we still couldn't score - that was just the kind of day we had. Josh pitched the second inning, faced three batters, striking out one, on 10 pitches. At the plate, he went 1 for 2. Alas, there will always be our next game...
As for the rest of us, there was work [Jamie], birthday overnights with horseback riding [Kayla], time spent with friends [Megan], and a little watching of the USC domination [Josh and I]. I had papers to grade for Community of God, plus reading and the obligatory washing of the car mixed in for good measure.
All in all a good weekend, but it still seems that there was more left undone than planned. Ever have that feeling?
