The Boy has played soccer since he was 3 years old. Four years ago, he tried out for the local travel team. He's played travel soccer ever since. Eight seasons of traveling all over this region of South Carolina, we've seen some good seasons, some great seasons, and some not-so-great seasons. This past fall, his team won all but 1 game and ended the season in 1st place, but the fall season doesn't count for anything at his age group. The spring is the important season because the spring season standings determine which teams play in the state championship tournament. This spring, they also won all but one game, again ending the season in 1st place.
This past weekend was the state championship tournament. Saturday, his team won both games, and Sunday morning they won their 3rd qualifying game to make it to the championship game. They had to play the only team that beat them during the season, and the tournament was being played at the home fields of the other team. The Boy's team pulled out a 1-0 victory, winning their first ever state title.
