Second round of this season’s soccer playoffs. It’s only my second game back from my hamstring injury that’s kept me sidelined for about six weeks.
We came into the playoffs last week as a #2 seed out of an 8 team league. We played the #7 seed and won like 15-2 or some hugely lopsided score like that.
Then, this week, we played the #3 seed. This is a team we played to a 7-7 tie. They’re a bunch of hispanic kids. Probably late teens. It’s obvious they’ve played together for a long time.
We were short handed this week due to scheduling. Basically, only had 1 sub. And I’m still not 100%, so I wasn’t as much help as I could be. We ended up losing 6-3.
It was a tough loss… but man, the whole time I was out on the field this kept running through my head:
I hear you Murtaugh. I hear you.
