2008 Classic Trip Journal


17 July 2008


Playoff day for all 3 teams today and the Boys B started us off with an 8 am game.  We played very well and James scored an early goal to put us up 1-0 at halftime.  2nd half we were under a lot of pressure and finally gave up a crafty free kick goal and game ended 1-1 tie, so we go right to PKs.
SnS first and recap is as follows

Sweden wins in 7th round  and boys B are out of the cup.  POD - Alex

Boys A is next as we play a team from Scotland at 9 am on a great little stadium field.  Sun is out, condiotions are great except one thing, we forgot to show up and played a luckluster game vs. a team we were at least 3 goals better than. As I am preparing for PKs, they score on a corner kick with 3 seconds remaining, not even enough time to have the kickoff and we are out of the cup.  Very dissappointing with this talent level but I think we are extremely tired and worn out as our legs just are not there. A great run nonetheless and we are proud of the boys.  POD - Nick

Girls do match analysis in the morning as they an evening game and the boys get some free time to hang out, something they have not had much time to do.  Girls game was very slow and also luckluster and both teams missed chances but SnS were definately the better team.  0-0 ends the game and right to PKs.

Girls are now in the round of 16 and play early on Friday morning.


Tour is winding down and we need a break from the physical demands but all is still going extremely well.  Weather and food continue to be great, although it was extremely cold during the girls game tonight. 


Wish us luck tomorrow
