This was a nice little up and under kick. He wasn’t set far back, and the defender is on top of his just as soon as he gets the ball. But he manages to get a short high kick away. The he has to fight and weave his way through a crowd to get under the ball. He’s got just a bit of a bobble in contact as he makes the catch… but breaks through and runs in his own kick for the try. Nicely done!
Isabel was a fierce competitor in a nearly all boy league.
Brian (gray sleeves, red socks) is injured at the start of this play (on the ground protecting his head). He’s trying to get get subbed off the field… but the play comes his way. So he does the only thing he can think to do – he makes the tackle. And then he does it again and again. The play finally moves away from him and he can limp away… but he keeps checking to make sure his team doesn’t need him. Fortunately his injuries were temporary and he was able to rejoin the game after a short break.
