Archer’s Soccer team is called “Fireball Dragons” (because they couldn’t decide on one). This is Archer’s third year of Soccer.
He played a small local league in Polson when he was 4, and after we moved to Oregon, he played on the McMinnville League (which Plays 7 weeks in Spring and 7 weeks in Fall). (Ashton’s been very happy to coach him every year so far.)
Last year, Archer had been very tentative and unwilling to try to take the ball from an opponent (unless it was Dad or Atley =)). At the end of last year, he started to be less hesitant, but this year, he’s all tenacious ferocity.
The ball even hit him in the face and he still got the ball back and took a strong shot.
And even with Coach’s best efforts to focus on passing to each other and getting open, Archer scored 9 goals today. Anna caught 3 of them.
Coach is very happy to see him and his team improving so much. We’ve had wonderful weather and a great group of kids and parents.
