Jack played in his eighth and final soccer game of the season. It was wet and rained throughout most of the game. He played forward in the first period, goalie in the third period and forward in the fourth period.
The other team scored two quick goals at the beginning of the game. This has been a pattern this year; Jack's team would fall behind early. Jack scored the first goal for his team. One of his teammates made a strong crossing pass and Jack stuck it in the top of the net. His team scored one more goal in the first half to tie the score at 2 to 2 at halftime.
Jack actually got to handle the ball two or three times at goalie in the third quarter which made him happy. In the fourth quarter, Jack scored again. He also had a couple of other strong shots that were wide. Jack just missed stretching to get his foot on another strong cross that would have pushed the ball into an open goal.
This is probably the best game that Jack has played since the beginning of the season. He was very mobile. He finally looks like he has recovered from the mid-season injury.
Jack's team won by a score of 7 to 3. For the season, his team had 10 wins and no losses. This is the second year that we have played with this coach. Over the last two seasons, the team has 19 wins and 1 loss. They are scheduled to play in a tournament in early December that is designed to match teams with similar records. It is going to be interesting to see how they do.
In his third season of soccer, he scored 7 goals [1-2-0-0-0-1-1-2] in the eight games.
