Season Champions

Another weekend, another soccer championship. This time, it was Jacob's season team, bringing home the blue-ribbon bling-bling in a two-game tournament for the Burbank B-U10 Championship. They faced stiffer competition than they were used to, but still won handily, 3-1 and 4-2.

The brightest moment was when the opposing team's star player rushed in on a break-away. Jacob, in the keeper's position, was not cowed. He came out in defense, growled a little, and threw himself on the ball while it was still on the striker's feet -- totally owned him. It was like a great rejection in basketball.

Of course, this means they're going on to regional tournaments now. Looks like we'll be busy on weekends in January.

Well done Jacob, glad you're taking on board your dad's advice about not staying right back on the line when in goal - intimidate 'em!!
