Fifth Soccer Game | Laveen Soccer

The Pink Penguins had another winning soccer game.  They played awesome today and I am so proud of all of them.  Aiyana got her second and third goals for the season.  She was on fire today.  I didn't coach this game so I was able to sit out and take some pictures again.  Both my mom and my dad made it to the game today so it was nice that the girls had their Nana and Grandpa Timmerman there to cheer them on.

A few players on the other team liked to grab our team's shirts when we were running ahead of them.  It was a bit irritating, but as you can see... Aiyana managed to trip one of the other players.  Ooops :o/


Clara ran around on the field for a little while.  She doesn't care much for the heat though.  It amazes me how there is such a difference in the level of involvement between our five and four year old players.  Looking back, I remember Aiyana not really participating in soccer that much.  In fact, that's why we took a couple of seasons off.  We assumed she wasn't going to like the sport, but boy were we wrong.  She LOVES it now and she is doing really well.  So it will be exciting to see these four year old's start to get the idea of the game and, eventually, play more competitively. I almost think that the four and five year olds should be separated.  I also feel like there is a level of discouragement in the younger age group because they cannot compete with the five year olds.  So instead they prefer to sit on the sideline and eat snacks ha, ha.  Little stinkers!
