Weekend of Winning stalled
This is Jon. Today was a low point of my coaching career. Going into the weekend, the Mid State Co-op Cougars were 5-0 and looking to add two to the win column. Fate had a different game plan. The Cougars suffered a subpar weekend of coaching, earning a tie (4-4) in game one and losing 6-0 in the second half of the doubleheader. I will admit to being frustrated a bit and it showed in my lack of execution of the plan. I've been so focused on making sure we play as a team and pass as much as we can (it still ends up being a mob of 5 and 6 year olds around a ball) that my team was passing up clear shots and easy looks on the goal in order to pass to a teammate! Great job listening to my coaching, that's the silver lining. At the end of the day, the kids are great and I get to hang out with Adelyn on the pitch every Thursday at practice and every Saturday during the game.
