Josie is now playing field hockey on her middle school team and her first game was this week.
After watching one full game, here is what I know about field hockey: nothing!
Not a single thing!
I really had a hard time figuring out the rules. The whistle blew a lot and there were a few corner and penalty shots but I don't know why.
I will figure this game out eventually.
I have faith in myself.
Josie seemed to be having fun and that's something.
It wasn't the best day for watching an outdoor sporting event - it was pouring rain but it hasn't rained in Massachusetts in so long, that no one was complaining about the weather. The rain was desperately needed.
Josie got a lot of playing time (probably because they only had two extra players so everyone got to rotate in and out :) )
Sadly, they lost 0-1 but that goal wasn't indicative of better play by the other team. They were equally matched, if you ask me.
But really, I'm only guessing :)
