Kezia has played with the basically the same group of girls for years. I would imagine that other rec soccer leagues experience the same thing and the teams stay more or less the same from season to season. What's interesting to me is how the skill level that Kezia plays at seems to be so equal to all the teams in this league. Rarely is there a high scoring game and often a single goal separates the score.
Tonight was Kezia's first indoor game of the season (her team played on Saturday but she was away and the score was a 1-0 win) and it was a tough one!
They manoeuvred around players:
They beat the other team to the ball:
They did throw-ins:
and corner kicks. They had shots. They played hard.
When it was all said and done and the buzzer rang...
it was a 0-0 score.
I expect that there will be many games like that this year.
