Utah, European championship

"Lehi defender Kyler Fisher (38) hugs goalkeeper Riley Anderson after defeating Bonneville, 4-1, in the UHSAA 4A Boy's Soccer Championship at Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy, Utah, Thursday, May 20, 2010."

Sorry for the lack of posts. I just got a new laptop, so the past couple days has been a whirlwind of transferring data and software, along with clearing the old machine.

Last week, I switched from baseball for a day to cover the UHSAA 4A Boy's Soccer Championship at Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy.

For some reason, boy's high school soccer doesn't seem as popular or get as much coverage as girl's soccer out here.

I only thought could be that there seems to be a Title IX thing out here for soccer. Such is the case at BYU.

So instead of covering almost every game like I did for Lehi girl's soccer, I only shot two games of Lehi boy's; their semifinal and final match.

The championship game was pretty entertaining. That is aside from every player trying to look like a European soccer player with their crazy haircuts and anything-but-black shoes.

This match-up included a fair share of excellent jukes, shots, and celebrations. Even some celebrating that include fake champagne.

In the end I thought I had a lot of good looking pictures, but this quieter jube, moment kept me coming back for another look.
