Both boys played in a soccer tournament this weekend that started on Thursday night and ended this evening. Both their teams won all of their games by Saturday, which qualified them both for the finals today. David's team came in second place, losing the final game 0-1. Juan David's team won the championship for his age group. Now they get to play in the tournament of champions in a few more weeks. His coach beamed with pride when they presented the trophy to him. He said he's never led a team to win the championship before. The coach gets to keep the trophy for six months, and the boys all get medals to wear and keep. David's team got second place medals, so I'm happy they both made it so far. They both still have a game left of the regular season, so they could possibly come home with more trophies. Currently for the season, Juan David's team is in first place--they are undefeated so far! David's team is in second place in his division.
