The win in the semifinal game was especially sweet inasmuch as we beat Hugo's hometown team (Hugo plays for a team located an hour away). The hometown team, which desperately wanted to beat Hugo, was loaded with his classmates and good friends. With the win, Hugo is having a much better day in school today than he would otherwise have had.
Been away with Hugo, his dad and the wife for 4 days in Amherst, NY to attend the New York State U(under)12 Championships tournament which, we are happy to report, Hugo and teammates won. The event was both fun and stressful - 1 must-win game to make it out of our bracket pool round, 1 overtime win in the semifinals and the big win in double overtime in the championship game.
