You win some, you tie some
Sunday was a big soccer day here in the south land: In women’s action, the mothers of Grade 4, Escuela Raúl Pavón Mejía, beat the pre-Kinder moms 4-1 in the finals of the parents’ tournament. Kristen, named by opposition goalies “La Amarilla,” came through with 1 goal and 2 assists. In men’s action, Goalie Paul, “El Arquero Grandota,” punched, caught, dove and kicked to backstop the Grade 4 fathers’ team in a 3-2 win over the Grade 5 dads to make a clean sweep of the tournament for “Cuarto de Basica.” In other action, Ecuador tied Brazil 1-1 with a late game goal in the preliminary round of the World Cup. We watched with a couple dozen neighbors on the big screen at our favorite restaurant, charming way to pass a Sunday afternoon.
