The month of October has been difficult for Nicholas and his soccer team, Valley United Black. They have lost 2 key defenders due to injury (Austin broke bones in his foot and has been out for the whole month of October, and Daniel sustained a hairline fracture of the left wrist in a game a few weeks ago). As a result, they have lost their last 5 games! Despite playing well and trying hard, the boys have been unable to put the ball in the net which only made the losses worst. The team's morale has been pretty low this past month. Hopefully times ahead will be better.
Daniel broke his wrist in a game a few weeks ago and will be out for at least another 2 weeks.
Nicholas had a touch of the flu earlier this month but is feeling much better and has been playing some of his best soccer in the last 2 games.
Ariel has shown that he can truly be an asset in the midfield and has earn an increase in playing time.
Cody has been solid no matter what position he's playing and has filled in for our missing defenders.
Finally, Zack has demonstrated that he is back in shape and keeps hustling every time he is on the field.
Many other players deserve to be recognized for their effort which is why I will have another post about VUSC next week. So stay tuned and until then, you can see more photos of VUSC at:
