Hurts so good...

Were we watching tackle football tonight or a soccer game? I'm not sure because that match was brutal. Our guys were getting slammed by the other team and the officials were quite oblivious to all of it. They were especially hard on our defenders. While trying for a goal, one of the other teams players took Landon out. He plowed him like a freight train, knocking him silly, but even with that Landon never lost the ball. It was crazy and I am so mad that I didn't have the video camera with me because I know that my brother Lynn would love to see it (I'm going to try to find someone who taped it so I can post it later).
.
Landon briefly blacked out, gashed his lip and felt a little loopy so they took him out of the game. That was scary, but our back up goalie did a great job. They did score one on him though (not his fault, nothing he could have done) so Landon jumped up and asked to be put back in.
It ended up being a very exciting game and we won 3-1 so we're going to state. Hooray!


Our boys definitely earned this one.
And they have the battle scars to prove it.

Way to go guys!
We're proud of you!

Zach wanted me to tell you to tell Landon that Goalies Rock! Zach had a great game last night too. He played goalie the whole game and not a single score from the other team which WAS undefeated...

Landon is a stud. I wish so bad I could be there to watch more of his games. Good luck at state.

Way to go Landon! My son Jared (age 9) had a rough game on Saturday. I missed it, because I was recovering from eye surgery, but evidently the same thing was happening--the other team was playing really rough and the referee never called anything, according to my husband. Frank came home pretty mad about it, but Jared took it in stride--he is such a good sport!

Boy, I'm glad Janna is in marching band, not soccer!! We get to experience the thrill of victory without worrying about her physical safety! Congratulations to Landon and his team--good luck at state!
