And outdoor soccer and volleyball and softball?

She has been playing indoor soccer for a couple of years now but last night was the first game we got to go to. They are usually late at night and usually on Sunday evenings which makes it tough for us to get to. But last night was THE night. I am far from being a sport photographer here but here are my attempts. First off Amy always plays goalie. So a lot of the pictures will seem kind of similar. And she probably isn't going to like the way some of these came out. Sorry Amy!

Are you ready Amy?


Kick that ball away from the goal, Amy

Nice save, Amy

Wheo, that was a close one!

Is that a volleyball stance? Amy, you're playing soccer now - no setting the ball!

Tucker keeping his eyes on Amy

Nice save, Amy

Amy, Soccer, Soccer, don't spike that ball

Oh no, here comes the ball

Is it safe to look yet?

Oh, thank God!]

You got some good shots! ( Although in some I think I look more like am I doing weird dance moves, then playing soccer!)

The second game was a clittle closer...we only lost by 1, and I scored a goal!

By the way, dad forgot to leave the van unlocked this morning, so I still have the DVD. I'll try again tomorrow morning....

Of course you scored a goal - you've always done things like that when I wasn't there to see it. I had lots of fun watching - I think I am going to have to make an effort to go to more games. Did you score clear from the goalies box?

Oh, by the way the rest of the pictures are here. (http://http://www.shutterfly.com/view/pictures.jsp?&http=www.shutterfly.com)

Not quite...I came out of the box to get the ball and was closer to mid or 3/4 field.

We ahve games every Sunday from now through June 1, except Memorial Day Weekend. All of them are either at 7, 8 or 9 pm. (No 10 pm games this session, who-hoo!)

Very few people are at these games. Mostly the players and a couple of husbands. Besides the referee there didn't seem to be anyone in charge. So we just took him in. He was very, very good. He didn't bark at all and sat on Carl's lap most of the time. He wanted down but he kept licking at and trying to chew things on the floor so he wasn't down very much. He was really looking that way because he wanted me not his dad.

Action shots! Very impressive. :D

I'm disappointed to learn that the goal wasn't scored from the other end of the pitch. That's what I though too. :D

04-28-2008, 02:45 PM
Looks like fun!! :D

Where are the indoor games held?

We play at Maumee Sports Mall (http://www.maumeesportsmall.net/facilities.asp). It is a really nice facility.

I hope I have enough energy, Liz! May is going to be really busy, with outdoor soccer starting this Friday night. Mother's day weekend starts softball, and indoor doens't finish up until June 1....so I'll be playing outdoor Friday night, softball Sunday afternoon, 2 indoor games Sunday nights, and softball Monday nights! Wish me luck!!!

Great pictures, great action shots, and great action. Good work Amy and Mom. :) I bet Tucker would have loved to have joined the game.

The problem I have with playing at home...or the dog park is Sadie! She is a better goalie then I'll ever be, but she doesn't give up until she had popped the ball!

Awesome photos! I'm so glad you got to go and get some pics for us Diana!

Amy, it sounds like you do a great job as goalie and you look great. I wish I just had a pinkie full of your energy. You go, Girl!!!!! :)
