Jacob stopped this attempt at goal and out came the monster we cal Jacob.
And this one...
AND this one! The final score was 3-2 in our favor. Jacob stopped shot after shot after shot. Once he even caught a shot right at the goal post and hit his head on the pole on the way back down. He stood there dazes for a second, but managed to keep controll of the ball and stay in the game.
Jacob was beaming by the end of the game. I can't tell you how proud I was of him. Not just because he was doing a great job but because he had turned what was such a bad experience the season before into a huge success. I blame his great coach this season for seeing the potential he had and the drive to be great at any postion on the field for the awsome win.
One of the best moments of the game was when last seasons coach sat down next to me to take notes on our team (ya he's the only coach I now with boys this young who studies the other team as much or more then trying to study the strainghts on his own team.) While taking notes he turned to me and asked me who our teams goalie was. When Colby popped in and sayed Jacob the look on his face was PRICELESS. Another great moment came on Monday evening after the game. Caden happened to have practice on a field just before the team we had played on Saturday. As the team gathered and were waiting for Caden's teams practice to be over the conversation they had way great. They were so mad that our coach had kept Jacob as goalie the whole game. They new had anyone else been there goalie they would have won by 6 or 7 points easily. Truth is they probably were right.
