A long weekend of soccer. Jordan had two games and Ethan had 3 in Columbia MD.

3 Soccer games in 3 days. It started on Friday with Jordan’s senior night which they strolled to an “easy” victory of 7 – 0 over Westlake.
Saturday Ethan Durst played a great 1/2 for CSA U15B against Annandale FC. They did lose 2-0 but still a good game for the boys.

The first game for the CSA Avengers team. I believe it was a feeling out process for the boys. They had not played together as a full team. Ethan took a little bit to get used to the larger field and goal as this was his first time playing on both.

As I watched this afternoon’s match, I could not contain my sense of pride.
Looking across the pitch I saw confidence on the ball, trust amongst teammates and a love for this beautiful game expressed by players and parents alike. This comfort on the ball does not come from a single training session. The strong relationships developed within a team do not come from winning every single match. Love for this game does not come from simply playing it. These components are developed through a competitive environment, where players are hungry to get better and committed to one another. This culture, with genuine laughter and fun, is the perfect recipe for growth.
With that being said, our boys still have much to work on! Let’s keep up the great work.
