My U11 Girls picked up their first point this past weekend (yay!), but by far the funniest moment of the game was when a dog decided to audition as ‘Air Bud’ during the match. He didn’t do too well, ignoring the rolling ball for a nice patch of grass near the corner flag. Two of my players had to go pay him a visit and he immediately rolled on his back for a tummy rub. This picture was taken after he’d gotten lots of attention and a parent was trying to coax him off the pitch. He clearly wasn’t very successful as the dog totally ignored him!
