You Win Some, You Lose Some...

Payton's team had two football games this week. The first one was on Tuesday night and they kept their streak alive with a 19-0 win. This brought their record to 4-0. It was a good game (that I, unfortunately, did not get to see since poor baby girl was sick).

Nice handoff.
Team Captains.

Their second game was on Saturday against the only team in the league that they had not played yet. Payton was a little bit nervous about this game because a boy he played 7 on 7 with (we'll just call him "G") was on this team. And. that. boy. can. play. He is big and strong and can knock people out without exerting any effort. He just stands there and kids bounce off him. It really is pretty cool to watch. If only it wasn't my son playing against him.

Here was Payton's story he told on the way to the game...

"G" hit this kid so hard in one game that he gave him a concussion! And a sprained neck! And a sprained back! The kid could barely even walk! And so on.... (you get the idea).

Despite being slightly intimidated, the Yellowjackets hung in there and played a close game. It was back and forth, back and forth. Finally the game ended in a 19-19 tie. Overtime. Payton's team scores and gets an extra point. The other team scores. And gets 2 extra points. Boo. Hoo.

It was so disappointing to be so close! But the boys are still proud of their record and of their ranking. They are one tough team! Go Yellowjackets!

Only 2 games and the tournament left to go. This season is flying by!
