Tuesday – we did not have to travel far – just 14 miles up the road.
The regional semi – final –
for James Wood girls soccer –
was on the home field of Loudoun County High School.
And – they had won the STATE CHAMPIONSHIP last year – 2018 !
This year their record was better – they were undefeated !
It was exciting for us – in our back yard so to speak –
and Ella was brought up from the J.V. team .
It was a hard fought game – behind 1 to 0 –
and Loudoun County scored just before half time.
That score stayed the same
Until the 9:00 minute mark
When the second goal was scored
off a deflection from our own player into the goal.
The final would be Loudoun County 2 — James Wood 0.
Most likely – Loudoun County may repeat as State Champions !
The baton has been passed – Maddy hands it off to Ella –
who has two years left –
and she led the J.V. ‘s –
scoring goals – and assists
it is going to be exciting watching her the next two years !
Bitter sweet –
as Maddy moves on to college and soccer at University Of Lynchburg Va.
Ella – had tryouts for the Winchester United Travel Team Yesterday !
Now – it is graduation in less than two weeks –
and preparing for college.
Another soccer season travel begins this Fall with Ella –
and life goes on.
This was a close nit group –
and one final group hug at the end –
some come back –
SEVEN leave for a new life.
All to college –
two will play on –
records were set for the High School .
Before each game –
and after each game –
they come and go the same way.
Led by their Captains –
a walk onto the field
and a walk off the field.
A Class act – I hope it is carried on through the years !
The END and the BEGINNING for both girls –
IT CAME TO A END – BUT WHAT A RIDE –
and it CONTINUES
The journey for the both of them –
Going to be a fun time in our lives.
Hope you enjoyed – stay tuned as the next chapter begins.
