We headed to Kansas City this weekend for the Midwest League Squirt A final season tournament. Ben's team was favored to take 1st place. They had won the regular season and had been playing very well. On Saturday they started a little slow against Omaha, but ended up winning that game 5-3. The second game was against Cedar Rapids (Yes, we drove 4 hours to play an Iowa team) and we played much better. Ben scored the first goal of the game, which really motivated the rest of the team. We won handily 8-1. Unfortunately, we did not have the same intensity when we played Tri-city this morning. We lost 1-0. The kids were pretty bummed, but no time wallow in self pity. We head to Wisconsin for a tournament next weekend. Ben ended the weekend with 1 goal and 2 assists.
