We had a great day yesterday at the annual Falcon Cup soccer tourney on Rokko Island. My friend Trevor and I coached the teams this year. We took 34 elementary students making up 6 teams. With tears, shouts of joy, wins, losses through 25 games (14 wins) the student-athletes enjoyed the day.

Oliver’s team had some tough luck in the knockout rounds, losing in penalty kicks after dominating play in the first game and in the second game, they lost 2-1 on a penalty kick. They were placed in the bottom-8 tourney (22 teams total) and played through and won that group in an exciting penalty kick final. (video below). Oliver had a lot of goals including the two in the videos in this post.

Ocean played her first competitive soccer games. She scored 6 goals in her games, including the lone goal in the third/fourth place game which the team lost 2-1.  Ocean is excited to play soccer and joined the after school club at the school. I am very happy that she likes sports!
