Papa’s World – When sisters compete on the soccer pitch – one last time – priceless – both captains!

Randolph College – the University of Lynchburg – one a sophomore – the other a senior.

Both colleges are in Lynchburg, Va. Ella is a sophomore, Randolph – and Maddy is a senior.- Lynchburg.

Both start on their teams – Maddy a wing and Ella midfielder.

Sad this most likely will be the last game they play against each other – but as a family – MEMORIES!

Captains meeting midfield – Ella middle on left in white – Maddy on the right – middle in black.

Shaking hands

And then THE HANDSHAKE AMONG SISTERS! MEMORY!
And then the procession out onto the pitch – Number 10 white – Ella and number 13 black – Maddy.

For us as grandparents and as mother and father – there is no winner and no loser !

For the granddaughters – bittersweet as for the second time – Maddy’s team has won.

Ella never came out of the game – and she has now started and played every game as a freshman

and now as a sophomore – the only freshman to accomplish that.

She will be a very good player when it is all said and done.

Maddy is ending her career for a third straight year as a starter.

Lynchburg has gone to the NCAA tournament for 16 straight and won a national title in 2016.

Wearing the same numbers all the way through – youth – travel and HS teams.

Since they both could walk with their father working with them on ball handling and passing – shooting and footwork – they both take the corner kicks for their teams.

Today Ella has grown so tall – almost 5’10”

Maddy will graduate in Engineering Science with now a 3.85 GPA!

No one lost here – proud parents Debby and Mike – the tradition of the family – love of soccer and life.

Thanks for reading PAPA’S WORLD and WHEN SISTERS MEET ON THE SOCCER PITCH!

PAPA’S WORLD – no losers – only WINNERS!

Randolph – wins – 4 losses -1 – ties – 2 Lynchburg – wins – 3 – losses – 1- ties – 4
