First loss for the season 

So today we had our first loss in basketball and I have to admit it was disappointing! Even though we are still playing grading games, we still want to win.

The team we were up against today has beaten all the other teams they have come up against by an average of 50 points so we were expecting a tough game and I guess a loss.
The first half though our boys were awesome!! Half time scores were tied, our boys were on fire the opposition did not know what was happening, but then one of our players got injured – that’s the third player in three weeks to get hurt – and we were all out of subs.
The second half of the game, the opposition came out firing and got a few quick shots, our boys seemed to panic which lead to mistakes, which lead to the opposition getting ahead by quite a few shots. To the boys credit they didn’t give up and the final score was 23 to 42.
After the game the opposition coach came over and was just lovely – he could obviously see I was new to this coaching gig and offered some helpful advice which I am very grateful for.
So three weeks into the season, still grading games the tally is  two wins and one loss and three injuries.

        I think all the injuries is an age thing as much as anything else, Ben has had more injuries this football season than ever before 😦

      1. absolutely! We were fortnate to have a two great coaches this year (baseball and soccer) because my son behaves exactly how the coach does. Ohhh, we were robbed! Then can’t let it go… and I’m like great, coach. (thanks for that)
