Trip to Morgantown WV - Braden's soccer Match

Braden taking a shot in pre-game.  Strong shot against a
lovely sunset sky.
Braden is a freshman student at University High School in Morgantown.  Not only is she on the Girls Varsity Soccer team but she starts at center mid.  It was great to see her play in a night game against the other high school in Morgantown.  She controlled the center of the field and was a major contributor to the 3-1 win.  More important to me was the obvious joy she displayed before, during, and after the game.  She is developing into a lovely young woman with a sense of humor and joy.  Great job, Brendan and Eileen!

The video below contains the announcement of the starting lineup for the Hawks.  It was exciting.  Apparently the seniors on the team had never beaten Morgantown High in a varsity game.  Braden was excited to give them a victory before they graduate.

The video below is a great example of Braden's play.  She wins the ball, then moves it to the middle and passes toward the goal.  She was in control the whole way.  This is a video of a series of still shots.
