Game 10--Finished

Sorry for the delayed recap report from my last game.  We played the Malad Devils and won 5-0.  I played goalie through the middle of the second half and had 5 saves.  The game was fairly easy but I did have a couple of tough saves so it was fun.

Our team finished 10-0 this season!  In our Fall season we were technically undefeated but we had two ties.  This season was a real undefeated season because we won EVERY game!  That feels good but what feels even better is that we raised $505.00 in pledges from generous people like you.  We still need to raise more so even though this season is over please donate whatever you can.  A little goes a long way to helping these kids.

You can go to my dad's website, to donate online or mail a check to his address.  Be sure to say the money is for Saveathon for Africa.

Stay tuned because I am not going to stop trying to raise money just because my season is over.  We have a tournament coming up next month!

Thank you for your support!

Games 8 and 9 Recap

As expected, we had two tough games last week but we won both!  We are 9-0 with only one last game this Thursday.

Our game against Crush was the best game of the season as we were tied 3-3 at the end of the first half.  I had to make some pretty tough saves and had 6 total.  We ended up making two more goals in about the last 5 minutes of the second half and won the game 5-3.  It felt really good to beat our toughest challenger in our league.

Saturday we played Tsunami and won 3-0.  They were still tough but not as tough as I remember when we played them earlier in the season.  I did make 7 saves but they weren't too difficult.

We are now in the final week of this season and I want to thank everyone who has supported my efforts.  I will update my final total and how much we have raised later this week.

Game 6 and Game 7 Recap

Sorry for the delayed posting of the recaps but actually the last two games have not been very exciting.  We beat Cool Green 2-1 but their goal was scored in the last minute of the game.  I was already out playing in the field since I was sort of bored waiting for some action at goalie.  I only had 1 save in the game.

Pretty bored waiting for some action.

Game 7 was against Manic Attack and I was a little bit busier but not much.  4 saves only.  Our team looked really good and other than a long shot by their best player for their one goal there wasn't much action.

This week we have two big games: Crush on Thursday and Tsunami on Saturday.  These games should be very busy for me which will hopefully get me over the 50 save mark.

This week I am looking forward to more action like this.

Only three games left and I am excited to finish strong and earn more money to help these kids in Africa.

Thank you for all your support.  Please share this campaign with others.
