This weekend was Team Italy's end of year tournament. They entered the tourney as league champions, won the round robin on points (17 goals for, 4 goals against) and then after a 1-1 tie in the final match it was sent into overtime. The entire crowd was dead silent, half the parents (my wife included) stopped watching entirely and faced the wall. Coaches picked three players each from their team and then they lined up for the shootout. One after another they shot. A miss, a miss, a goal, a goal, a goal, a miss and it was all over. Italy lost to the Purple Peppers. (boo hoo)
Sara still managed to score a trophy (for winning the season), a silver medal for placing second in the tourney and more importantly FREE pizza. Good times.
