The long road to the championship game finally came to an end on Saturday with a defeat. The mighty Lasers couldn't score against the dreaded Blasters. (yes, they had to play them again! It was a double elimination tornament and they came back to do it all over again!) The end score - 2-0! The girls took it pretty well - after all, 2nd place is not too shabby. It was the farthest they had ever made it, so I think even though it would have been great to win, they felt satisfied with what they accomplished. It was really, really cold on Sat. and I think everyone was just ready to call it quits for the year. No one should be playing soccer in Dec.! Unless of course you live in a warm climate.

I guess it didn't scare the opponents as much as they hoped!
