Off to Section 11… again.

El Cajon U10 All Stars

El Cajon U10B All-Stars

I have not posted about soccer in a while, even though it has been a big part of our lives the last few months. Petr finished up the season with 14 goals.  He is no Messi, but when his team needed him, he stepped up. As predicted, his team did not go very far in the playoffs at the end of the season. However, he was picked to play on one of the El Cajon all-star teams.  Sunday they played in the semi-final and final of the Area 11V tournament.  Both games went to extra time, and the final was decided on penalties.  Penalties are what they are, effectively nothing more than a highly stressful and exciting series of coin tosses to see who wins. They came out ahead needing only 4 rounds after a their keeper saved one and another rebounded off the post.

I was so emotionally worn out Sunday night that the AFC Championship felt like watching Jacksonville against Kansas City.

Now it is off to Garden Grove in February for the Section 11 playoffs.
