Surprise Scrimmage

Yesterday afternoon we drove over to Prairie du Chien for a game with their 5th and 6th grade girls. The referees were there; the athletic director was there; our team was there, but guess what? The home team was not there. Apparently there was a communications mix-up with them, so our girls were practicing on a floor, all by themselves.

Then someone had a wonderful idea. Why not let these girls scrimmage the boys sitting in the bleachers? And so, the game was on!

I wasn't sure who cheer for, because see that guy in the black shirt? That's my son. And #25, of course, is my daughter!

The clock was continuous, and the scrimmage was a bit intense...

...some of the boys were taller/older and could stuff it in the girls' face whenever they shot...

...while others were little guys who made it interesting!

The boys ranged in age from 1st grade to 6th grade, while the girls were 5th & 6th grade. All in all, it was a pretty fun match-up!

It was a semi-friendly competition. There were lots of smiles all around, as there was no pressure to "win". But my daughter and her friend, of course, made sure that the formal "team" won by 2 points. Just in case anyone was keeping score :)

This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.--1 John 5:4b
