No wonder they all missed

"Timpanogos' Sierra Johnson (No.3) pushes Springville defender Vanessa Johnson (No.16) out of the way as she tries to put a header shot on goal during the first half in the 4A Utah girls state soccer semifinals at Juan Diego High School, Tuesday, Oct. 20, 2009. Timpanogos won, 2-1, advancing to the finals."

I have some older stuff I want to post, but it's all on my work computer. I haven't had a chance to dump my older stuff from the past two weeks over the the lap top yet. So here is another from this week.

It's championship season here in Utah and I love it. Every mistake can cost a team their season. Every victory leads them another step closer toward becoming state champions.

The other evening I was shooting back-to-back soccer games. Out here in Utah, the girls play in the fall and the boys play in the spring.

Anyways, the two games I shot were great matches. Chris showed up for the second game, despite being sick, and shot from under the bleachers to avoid the rain.

Smart move since I decided to weather the off and on rain showers.

This was my favorite frame of the two games.

In any other situation, closed eyed frames would not make the take. But I thought this was funny and very true of head balls in soccer. Everyone closes their eyes.

Fun shot. I looks like the girl on the left looks out of the play, but still has her eyes closed! The shot is made for me with #16 getting her head palmed - but if no one saw it . . .
