Savannah's big Championship game was this past Saturday. Noah was extremely sick so I was the only one from our family able to make it to cheer her on.
First things first - the warm-up cheer:
What do you think these feet are for?
Savannah had another absolutely stellar game. She has really improved this season, especially in the defensive position where her coaches have had her play. (I might have to rethink the whole forward position for her on our outdoor team.)
At halftime the other team was only up 1-0 but they were really, really good and broke away from us in the second half, scoring 3 more goals to win it.
That's okay..2nd place isn't too shabby!

Savannah and I hung around the arena for a few minutes after the game and while we were sitting there, one of Savannah's coaches brought over the coach of the winning team for an introduction. Apparently the coach of the other team coaches an outdoor travel team and he was hoping to recruit Savannah. He invited her to come practice with the team in preparation for tryouts in June. Obviously this was a huge compliment to Savannah and he was extremely disappointed when he found out that we don't play Sundays. I was so proud of Savannah for playing so well that she caught the attention of this coach.
Following the big game the team got together for a pizza party. After food, Coach Dave recognized each of the girls individually for the job they had done throughout the season. He saved Savannah and Kate for last - the 2 defenders - and made a big deal about how they had helped our team get to the championship game by how well they played all season. Yes, I'm an extremely proud mom!!
