Grant had a very good soccer game and he kicked in one of his team’s two goals! His ball handling is much improved this season. Check out the YouTube video of the game!

Kickers Win Convincingly

The final score of the final game for the Fall 2008 season was 4 – 0, Kickers! The team played well despite the rain and despite being without Coach Ken. I helped out Coach Heather today by assisting the defense. Zero points allowed… I’m sure it was due to my coaching skills, right? I think all of the kids had a good time and enjoyed the BBQ afterward.

For anyone counting, the Kickers did not lose any games this season, although there were a few ties at the beginning.

Good Season, Kickers!

Kickers Win

Today was a big day for the Kickers as they won their game, 2-0.  They played pretty well as a team and spent most of the game near the other team’s goal.  Cooper knocked the first one in and Grant booted the second one into the goal.  We have only 2 more practices and one more game this season.  It is too bad because I think a lot of the First Graders are just now getting it.  Oh, well… it will give us something to look forward to in the Spring!

Another Tie Game

Last Saturday’s game ended in another tie, 1-1, which, as a spectator, is a lot better than 0-0!  The opposing team scored early during a bit of confusion near the goal.  The Kickers were able to tie it up, though, toward the end of the game.  Again, we were treated to a bit of teamwork by the Kickers as they passed the ball to each other to move it up the field.  It is a nice change to the usual scrum that happens when the kids just chase the ball around in a pack!  Grant played hard, played great defense and had numerous shots at the goal.

Hello Kickers Fans!

For those who may have missed a game, Grant’s team is undefeated… er, kinda.  They won the first, tied 1-1 on the second game and neither team scored today (we call that a defensive battle 🙂  !)

Grant is having lots of fun.  Three of the boys (Grant, Cooper & Rogelio) showed signs of actually passing the ball to each other today!  That was the first time that I have ever seen that on ANY of Grant’s previous teams.  Unfortunately, that didn’t start until the end of the game.  It would have been interesting to see what might have happened if that started clicking earlier.  I hope to see it next week and I hope that Coach Ken has an idea of how to reinforce that in practice.

Fall Soccer Starts

Posted: September 26, 2008 by jgrantmarshall in family

We got a call on Monday that soccer practice started on Tuesday and we will have a game this Saturday.  It feels like we’ve been scrambling since.

Anyway, here is a link to this year’s schedule, we’re the black team and our name is the Kickers.

Hope to see you at the game!

A Compliment for Grant

Today was soccer practice for Grant.  One of the major differences for him this season (as opposed to the previous 3) is that he is now able to keep up with the other kids while running around.  Previously, everyone else would run circles around him.  Now, he runs like he is practically jet propelled!  After practice, his coach came up to us to say that Grant is quite a runner… and then… he said that Grant is a VERY good Goalie!  As a matter of fact, he said that Grant does things as Goalie that he would expect of 5th or 6th graders and he said that he should know because HE is a goalie in an adult league.  Wow!
