Soccer Tournament Recap

This weekend, I had the opportunity to go to some of the tournament games for the South Franklin Community Center Soccer Program.

 Though the youngest division (ages 5-7) didn’t actually compete in the tournament, they did have one last day of games. The kids were adorable! It was fun to watch them chase after the ball in little swarms. The kids would all pack together in a tangle of arms, legs and different colored jerseys to try and be the one to kick the ball in whatever direction they could. It looked like they all had a lot of fun and had such great sportsmanship!

You could tell the coaches were great with the kids and that they had a lot of fun as well.

I also watched the oldest division (12-15 years old) compete for the tournament title. Things got a little crazy when there was a tie between two teams in the playoffs. They actually ended up doing a penalty kick shoot-out of sorts. It was pretty intense!

The red team took the tournament for the older division. Though it was definitely cold, the weather stayed nice and I think everyone had a good time. I know I had a lot of fun watching the games!
