David's team struggled a bit through the season this year, falling into fourth place after holding third for most of the time. They held 3rd place for the previous two seasons, though, so here is a picture of their trophy ceremony to receive their 2013 trophies.
They ended up in first place after the first day of the tournament, but then took a loss in the semi-final game the next morning. That likely made them 3rd or 4th (but they only list 1st and 2nd).
Juan David's team did well in their season, but finally lost two games to the same team, a team that is actually a group of refugees from several other countries. They play a mighty fine game. JD's team ended up having to play against them again for the final game in the tournament. Both teams played their hearts out and wouldn't let the other team get a single goal. After going into overtime and still no goals scored, they went to the penalty kicks. Juan David was pretty excited that he made one of the penalty kicks to help his team win the championship--for the second season in a row! They ended up getting second place for the regular season. In the fall when they start up, they jump from U16 to U19, so their competition will change quite a bit.
We're so thankful for the team God put him on, the families of the other players, and especially their coach's dedication to the boys. I have a lot of respect for both boys' coaches and the role that they play in my sons' lives.
