Football Frenzy

WCHS Wildcats v. CHS Coyotes
Friday September 10, 2010

This was the 2010 home opener for the Wildcats and Brendan, Colin & Bric (the head coach's son) are once again ball boys this year! They were so excited to do their job sporting their new Wildcat jerseys.

Defense coming out hitting.

The Coyotes are one of the top teams in the state.

We are not.

Tough game.

Ryan proud of his boys for getting a turn over

Ryan was very proud of his defense...they held the Coyotes to only 14 points in the first half.

Ryan doing his coaching thing...♥ watching him coach!

By the 4th quarter we were down by a few touchdowns so Ryan put his 2nd & 3rd stringers into the game.
The Wildcats lost to the Coyotes 42-0. It was a tough game but considering they were playing one of the top teams in the state they held their own and our defense did a GREAT job holding them. Even the Coyotes Offensive Coordinator told Ryan that his defense was awesome!

Great Game Boys
Wildcats 0 - Coyotes 42
And what's a Friday night without a picture of my 3 boys ♥

Next week we have a bye Friday Night Lights...What will I ever do with my free Friday?!

Cobras v. Blitz
Saturday September 11, 2010Getting ready to enter the field...lined up 2x2 holding hands.
Love the team unity

We played on the varsity field again, which is so much more fun...100 yards instead of 80. Above is Brendan making his tackle.

Offense on the field with Colin just about ready to snap the ball

Brendan making another key play

This was a very hard game...our boys did not have heart out there on Saturday...they looked sluggish and were slow. The Blitz played dirty and not very fair and the refs made some really BAD calls, namely on us and one of our players even got ejected for fighting back (the other player did not) and I could blame all of those things for our loss but excuses only satisfy those who make them so I will hold my head up high and shout GET'EM NEXT TIME BOYS and look onto next week.

Cobras 0 - Blitz 13

These boys play for the ♥ of the game

And I must say for as sorrowful as they were about how the game was played and the end result, as we walked to the car they shouted a "Good Game" to all of the Blitz players they passed. I had tears in my eyes and it softened my heart because I was so very upset and mad, but as I heard them being great sports I whispered a Thank You God for giving me such great boys.

2 Days, 2 Teams, 2 Losses
We will get'em next time....
Go Wildcats!
Go Cobras!

I love when my boys teach me lessons in life. Enjoy your Friday night off- maybe you should have a girl's night!

We came out sluggish on Saturday in soccer too. WE lost but always had good sportsmanship and that is better any day than a win.
So glad your boys are good sports.
Great pictures this week. Sorry about the losses.
