Not the champions

So on Saturday we had our chance to make the final. As the game allows for unlimited substitutions, it was hot, and we had 15 players in attendance, we made use of them. I was off the field for the first goal against, but made it back on for the equalizer - a penalty, after an opposing player used our captain's leg to clean his studs. That was the score at half time. Then, they scored to take the lead, while I was again off the pitch. I came back on, and we scored an equalizer, a cracking shot by one of our female players from well outside the box. With 5 minutes to go, and the specter of extra-time looming, I came off. 3 minutes later the other team scored what would be the winning goal, in a 3-2 game.

Next week, we play in the 'losers final', or the 3rd place play-off, while the true final takes place after our game. It's a shame we didn't make it all the way, as we're the only team to have beaten the other finalist this season (and from what I heard, for the last 2 seasons), so we may have stood a chance. Ah well, it's not to be... this year.
