Wednesday - rain again today, what a surprise and the rain on the boys "b" team has continued. we lost 4-1 in another game that we should have won. seems to be our motto these days. as the day started out the boys had a chance to win the group but with the poor result the boys finished tied for 2nd with 3 teams. because of our poor goal differential we are last and our cup is over. an enormously disappointing result for a team so talented. the girls played for 1st in their group against a fine finish team and lost 2-0. the Finnish team have 4 girls on the u-17 national team. they are set however for a playoff game on Thursday. the boys "a" played a German to a tie and this game them enough points to advance in 2nd place. we played our 1st playoff game the same day, in the rain of course and lost 1-0 to another American team. a very good. although their cup is over they played very impressively and should gain confidence heading into the Watford cup. all for now. kids are fast ! asleep with a 10.00 curfew as tomorrow bring rest for the boys and more games for the girls.
