She Shoots.......

She SCORES!!!

Miss Thing scored her very first goal on Sunday against the best team in the league. At this point, the U-11 league is very competitive, with girls ranging from 8 - 11.

Being in the right position proved key and she launched a kick toward the goalie (who would not allow another goal for the rest of the game) and in it went. She threw her arms up in the air and her teammates gathered around her for high fives! It was awesome!

She was the only one on her team to score! It didn't even matter that they lost, her smile never lost her face.

Way to go Miss Thing - I knew you could do it!!

Great job Miss Thing! My son loves playing soccer. A girlfriend of mine promised her daughter a trip to Frankenmuth (a Michigan tourist trap) every time she scored a goal (thinking she would be safe in betting). After 6 trips I think she changed her mind.
