Epic Soccer Match

whipSocc09Seemingly, the entire world is focused this month on the sport of soccer, and while those matches in Brazil have been good, the one played Wednesday in Keeseville, NY was just as exciting.

At Camp Whipporwill, the Camp MacCready girls dropped a 3-2 decision in a game that featured some incredible goalkeeping, and some well timed scores.  MacCready fell behind 1-0 in the first two minutes of the match, but the steady goalkeeping from Kelsey R, and a late first half goal by Helena, tied things up by the intermission.  “It was kind of hard to focus, and a bit scary having people running at you and kicking the ball at you,” said Kelsey.

Helena wound up with both MacCready goals, but Whipporwill added two more second half tallies to win thewhipSocc02 cliffhanger.  “Whipporwill was really good,” said Elsa.  “We were close and, just when we thought we were better, they shocked us in the second half.”  Despite the loss, Maddie had a great time.  “I hadn’t played soccer in a long time, so it was nice to play”

Prior to the contest, as an ice breaker, the girls from both squads gathered in a circle (right), kicking the ball to one another while introducing themselves.  “It was a little awkward,” said Anika, “but a nice way to meet our opponents.”
