Goalie Debut

Ben made his debut at Goalie on Saturday. At the mite level, they rotate who plays goal to give everyone an opportunity. He has been asking and asking to play. He played 2 games; let in a total of 7 goals; and made some really good saves. I was really nervous the whole game. He told us that it was harder than he expected, but fun and would do it again. Our friend Rich De Wilde would be so proud!

Just for your information.... Ben's team won the sportsmanship award at the Iowa Games. They choose the team who's players, coaches and fans display the best attitudes. The kids were very excited about winning 2 medals.
