During the winter, I’ve not been going to Soren’s soccer games as I have Maebh with me and she gets cold and bored so we tend to stay home. But as she was attending a birthday party of a boy in her class, whom she calls her best friend, I thought I’d drop and run back to see Soren’s game.
This is the first year that these kids have played together as a team – under 8’s. There are a few “better” players and some younger ones who truly should be in the academy still but that would cause an uproar to suggest it. Anyway, as I arrived sure enough Soren had a face to face collision with a kid who had to come out of the game for a few minutes. I was taking some photos and videos and luckily I filmed Soren scoring a goal!
Here are a few photos of today’s match.
The 80-pound “under 8-year old boy” with the pink shoes was a power-house knocking his way around.

He wears his long hair in a headband but later at home he tried a “boy bun” and it worked. We joked that unless he gets wider headband, we’ll have to give him a boy bun at each game.
