Sam's Westside United team got the Autumn off to a great start over the weekend. Playing in the top flight, the westsiders blanked teams from Cincinnati, Brownsburg and Fort Wayne in order to earn a berth in the championship game.
They faced off against a Westfield team loaded with guest players and, quite frankly, two outstanding and tall players. But a stacked team and two players with exceptional talent went down to defeat at the hands--er, feet-- of this spirited and well-coached Westside United group of 13-year old boys.
Sam scored one goal over the weekend and received a major "charlie horse" on this thigh while trying to score a goal in the championship game. Congrats, Sam. Heal well. And good luck in Dayton, Ohio, this weekend!
