Today the Westminster JV team (8-10th graders) took on my Thursday night indoor team, RPC United, in a final tune up for their season. We won 6-1 but I am extremely happy with what I saw from my boys. We're (RPC United) fat and old, but we have played together for some time and actually have 5 former college players, one of which was a full-ride scholarship caliber midfielder. The JV boys were tentative against us at first and obviously couldn't out-body us, but nevertheless they showed well today. The game helped me observe some things I can work on with the boys and also gave me some good ideas for player placement heading in to our first league game next Tuesday.
I think we started a tradition today as we continue to build a soccer program at Westminster. Check out my sweet header on a pass from Chico that ended up cranking the crossbar.
