Soccer Seeding...

With two kids on two team, and being the head coach for the littlest one, soccer had us going in different directions.  
Tyler's team is pretty new to the game, with a handful of kids returning this year, most the kids have not played.  We are also a young team so we were seeded in the last U8 Division.  After 3 weeks of practices, we weren't very sure what was going to happen today.  
To all our surprise, they did completely awesome.  Scoring wise they won 3 games and tied 2, having possession of the ball a good portion of their games.  With the exception of the last game, our goalies didn't have much action today. 
At the end of the tournament, our team ended up in the #2 spot, and will be recommended to move up a division.  
 Tyler said he had fun today.  When asked what position he like best he said that he liked to play goal, when the goalie doesn't see much action.  I asked him if he liked to play and he shrugged his shoulders and said "not really."  So, he probably won't play next year.  But he promised he would try hard the rest of the season. 

Cody was off at another field with Grandpa.  His games went okay from what was reported, they lost 2, tied 2 and won the last one.  He's having to work hard to gain the trust of his new team mate and getting them to listen for positioning. 
 Tyler's games were shorter, so we were able to make it to Cody's last game of the day.
He said he had a good day today and had fun.  He as put into his favored sweeper position, so that made his day.
