The Pirates get their 1st victory!

It was a glorious day on the pitch last Saturday. The Pirates got their first victory of the season with a 9-5 beating. I have said it before, and I will say it again, we cannot play at 9am. This game was at 11, and the kids were ready to play. We are all asleep at 9.

We now take a 2 week break for Easter before hitting the field again.

It was a loss, we lost again

We fell 9-4 this morning to the Vipers. What makes it worse is that they are the team that stole our black jerseys. We are just not awake at these 9am games. All 4 of our goals came in the 2nd half, we spent the entire first half watching the ball roll around.

In other news, we had to place one of the new players on injured reserve for the rest of the season due to a foot problem.

Shuttle launch

Just watched the shuttle launch. We are up at Sarah's parents for Joe's birthday. Even all the way up here in Ocala you get a pretty good view. This was our view from their driveway. The kids were yelling "have a good time" to the astronauts as loud as they could.

Lost 2 more

Last week the Pirates went down 13-0 in a massive whooping to Team Brazil. They were not really from Brazil, but you would not have known the difference. That team needs to find a more competitive league to play in.

This morning we lost 7-2. We had 1 own goal, whiffed on 2 opportunities to prevent goals, and had about 10 close calls. We should have won this one, the kids played hard, they were maybe just a little too eager, took them a little too long to get into the groove.

Now we are trying to figure out what to do for the weekend. We have a lot to do, too many options.
