Leo ended up taking nearly 1,700 photos of the games.  He nearly filled up his memory card.

Bittersweet 

Sorry to report we lost today to a team we could have easily beat.  The other team scored off of two corner kick set pieces.  We had a beautiful equalizer early in the game from Chase with an assist from Gabe.  We had what looked like another very late equalizer from Pabs on a corner kick however that was called back.    All in all a good run — thanks fans!

To the Quarters…

So up bright and early with 16 very bleary eyed boys.  Long story short — a 2-1 lost against Utah Crossfire.  Fortunately the other 2 teams in our group tied so we automatically advance with a 2nd place finish in our group.   We are back in the hotel — “chilling” —  the quarterfinal is 6 pm tonight.  Wish us luck.

Also a teary goodbye to Sam who is headed to Chicago tonight and to our fabulous mom/chaperone Steph who heads back to the Bay Area tonight as well.

Day #3 …a tie

We had a nice evening last night in Seattle followed by a crazy run to the Fred Meyer for snacks at 10:00 pm.

This morning it was generally mellow and we left for the fields late morning for our 1 pm game.  Today was a lot cooler and we had a nice breeze kick up in the 2nd half.  The game was a pretty even match – the team was definitely beatable – Franky had a nice goal from an assist from Gabe and we had several other attempts.  We ended in a 1-1 tie.  This puts us in 2nd place in our group.  We need to WIN or TIE tomorrow to advance.

Tonight we will have a team dinner at Buca di Beppo here in Lynnwood and make an early night of it since we have an 8 am game tomorrow.

Dub #1

Very warm day out there today, however our players prevailed in winning our first game against the Idaho team who is ranked  #3 in their state.  Goals by Chase Griffen and OT.  We conceded a goal late in the game on a penalty kick.   Planning on going to Seattle tonight.

Day 1 Recap

So day 1 was mostly uneventful – coach Pierre’s plane delayed and rental car lines from hell (but we got such a deal).  Other than that boys are settling into the suburban environs in Lynnwood.  You know, hanging out at the mall.  Many watched the Warriors game 😞.   Hard to watch the loss.  Our hotel is very nice and recently remodeled.  Very warm here – nearly 80 – rough on our fog babies.  All in bed at a reasonable hour – psyched for our 11 am game tomorrow. 

GO MARAUDS!
