It's the feeling of teamwork that you'll remember...

Last weekend our game was a bit of struggle. We have been hit with some injuries late in the season that caused us to change the formation and line-up.  While we went down a few goals in the first half, the second half we came out and didn’t give up.  We scored 2 late goals in the second half but we were unable to come out on top. The loss was tough to swallow because it now puts us out of the running for 1st place.

We have only one game left on Saturday and although our position, we are going to give it everything we have. We want to end the season on a high note and play to the best of our abilities. We have had a good week of training and are ready to face a good team on their turf.  There is nothing left after Saturday so we need to leave everything on the pitch.
After the game on Saturday the team has arranged a sauna night. Sauna nights are not common or even existent back in the US. While it is a different experience, we have gotten used to it and they are a lot of fun! We will have games, sauna, swimming and of course some good food! On Sunday we will have a team dinner as Jackie, Kerstin and I are leaving early Monday morning. I cannot believe how fast the past six months have gone by.  I am thankful for everything I have learned, the people I have met and the different things I have been able to experience. I am so excited to get back home and see all of my family and friends, but things here will not be forgotten.  I am looking forward to spending time with the Astrom’s as well as my teammates this weekend.  Although I am not very good at good-bye’s I know this weekend will be a lot of fun!
