Uni-corns win again

Last night was our second soccer game as the Uni-corns. First off, I love playing at the MJCC. Not having to worry about rafters makes playing soccer so much more fun. While the field is a little smaller, I can't tell when I'm out playing. Competition-wise, we've steamrolled our first 2 opponents, 9-1 and 9-2. I've scored 3 (the max for a guy) each game, and while my 3 in game 1 were all cleanups, my 3 last night were actually nice goals. One was a close shot to the left of the keeper as he challenged, one was a nutmeg. Just before my third, I kicked a guy in the back of the leg as I was going for the ball. This stretched out a chronic injury in my ankle and really hurt badly. It was painful to stand but I could run ok. I got a pass from Nathan that I stopped with my left foot and immediately kicked it with the right, scoring my final goal. Ice and vitamin I were on the menu at that point.

It'll be interesting to see how well we do next week, as Nathan is no longer on the team. He has a job or something... I think we'll still do well though.

Plus, we have an awesome logo. Shirts to follow!

Yeah our team is rad, no thanks to me of course. Still, it is good watching other players to get a feel for how the game is supposed to be played.

You're easily the most improved player so far Nate!
