I can vividly remember the play that led up to our first goal. The skillful passes from player to player, defeating each person that tried to obstruct our one-set minds and our eyes on the goal. Our timing was perfect and our moves swift, I was baffled at the precision and skill our team used and I quickly came to understand the growth the team had reached. I can never forget the moment when we all ran in for a group hug to express our joy, it made me feel an emotion I never thought i’d feel for a school sport. Although it was just one goal and we still lost, a sort of realization came over me.
I feel proud and excited when I got a chance to join Denver Ethiopian Community soccer team. Every week, we trained to improve our talent and fitness to become the best team in the tournaments. I felt like I was a favorite player from the rest of the team because of my talent, discipline and skills’. At the time it was easy for me to break through for the first team. On the other hand, I often felt out.
After half time Big Mo (a big drum) was getting smacked and the black and gold ran out. The Tigers started out with the ball and went down the field and scored with a 4 yard Tony Temple run with just over 13 mins left in the 3rd quarter. Arkansas got the ball after that quick score and went down the field and threw an interception to WIlliam Moore for a 26 yard INT, I remember going crazy after that play with my cousin Curtis. The Razorbacks got the ball back and scored with a Darren McFadden 3 yard touchdown run and the 3rd quarter ended. After every third quarter Marching Mizzou plays the Missouri Waltz, it's a rich long tradition at Mizzou that everyone
We went into the playoffs ranked 4th in AA so we hosted 13th seeded Weir. Everyone expected us to win and host 5th seed Fairmont Senior. At first, it seemed like that would happen without a doubt as we headed into halftime, but we blew the lead and lost 29-27. I sat and cried in that locker room crying for 45 minutes telling myself that it would not happen again next year. Well, here we are.
We lost pretty bad to them, but I thought we did extremely well against a Varsity team. This weekend really stuck out to me because we had such difficult teams we had to play against while we were down two vital players. We worked well as a team and definitely out worked every team we played
Jenna passed me the ball as i shot an outside shot and made it. The score was 18-20. As the game kept going on both teams scored after another all through out the third quarter and half of the fourth quarter. The clock was at three minutes with the score of 22-22. Our team picked up the defense a little more and we made sure that they did not score the
Due to intense five-hour weekend practices and other improvements, we have reached new grounds this year. For the first time in sixteen years, our school's team was able to advance to the third round of the regional Mock Trial competition. Although Mock Trial requires a huge amount of work and dedication, the final result is well worth it. After spending many hours with the team, I can confidently assert that everyone supports each other. After all, unity is
The road to glory started in Pierre, South Dakota. Where Berent, Cael, Trevor, Xavier, and I drove up to play for the state cup. The rest of the team was with their parents but we decided to carpool to save money. We were all joking around until we figured out that we were going to play the older tempo team, Tempo Blaze. At first, we thought that this would be a sweep, that we would win the whole tournament without worrying, but know we have to play the team that has never lost this year and we have never beaten for as
The tournament took place on a par three in Clear Lake, Iowa. My thought it would be very easy to win since we were playing on a par 3. Pretty much every hole was under 200 yards. My cousin and I played this course many times and shot under 40 for nine holes, so we were very cocky. We knew that we would have to practice a lot, so we played 18 holes each day before the tournament.
Soccer There once was a soccer game. It was going to be the other team that wins because the other team was in the lead and they just pushed so we get a free kick in the 18 box. I was the one taking the shot and it went in the goal and then everybody was comparing the ball to the goalie. Then there was a DQ because we were in Caro so we stopped and got dinner and then went home to eat and go to sleep and rest for the next day for school. That day at school I was happy because our team had won by 1 more point.
It was my time it was the beginning of 4th quarter and I was on the side line waiting for the team to line up and finally it was time for kick off. Everything went in slow motion while that ball was in the air I was hoping I was not gonna drop it. The next think you right at the ten yard line that ball was in my hands and whoosh I took off just like lighting the coach was on the sidling counting saying go go go I broke off four tackles and the las tackle I broke was big I have broken free and I got my longest touchdown run. I went on the sideline and coach was so happy I told him my goal was to run 80 yards but he said you got more than 80 yo ran 90 freaking yards that 's amazing. I was
Now I play soccer for the Oskaloosa team and I have played for them every year in the spring and fall. We have had a pretty good team through the years and we win more games than we lose. But I enjoy playing for a bigger town because the competition is a lot harder than Sigourney ever was and it makes it more of a challenge. Some people think I’m crazy for driving to Oskaloosa after school for practice but I think it is well worth the drive. I hope to go on and play for the William Penn College soccer team and I think I have a good chance since they know who I am because I played for them and go to their
After we scored one more goal, the score was four to three. It is the start of the fourth quarter now. Spartan High, somehow scores a myriad of goals. The score now is six to three. I call a timeout, and everyone hustles to the sideline.
The game had no goals until overtime when the coach made a sub. The sub, Muse Daniels, ended up scoring the game winning goal a few minutes later. The coach says that “You should have seen the bench.” For many players, it was unbelievable that after all of the struggles at the start, that they would end up winning it all. According to player Daniel Im, “going from almost not having a team to winning the banner was pretty exciting.” The team was lead by captains Nic Jeffries and Andrew Morrison whom the coach said “brought the team together”. The captains always made sure that the team was following routine and doing the correct warm-up and stretching before coach Dornan was there.
I ran to the 45 to the 35 to the 20, hoping to find the kick returner. 8 months waiting for this moment all the sweat, pain, 100 degree sun beaming UV rays to my face. I kept going for the guy next to me performing to the best to his ability. Success was the result of all the hard relentless work done throughout June into August. I acknowledged that my team had a good group of seniors who were high character student-athletes I spent most of childhood with.Ultimately finishing with a record of 3 wins and 7 loses taught me many lessons on becoming a better person and
