This morning at 7:50 AM, on a damp field in Richardson, TX a group of JL Long Buccaneers 6th grade soccer players gathered and kicked the ball around in anticipation of their upcoming 6th game of the season.  This would be an exciting one as it would be a battle for FIRST place bragging rights with the only other undefeated team in the same YMCA age division.  It was going to be the battle of the Bucs vs Badgers early this morning.  As the players stretched and warmed up, many said they were nervous.  Both Coach Perez and Coach Aves assured the team that as long as they continued to do what they have been doing and worked together as a team...everything would work out.   AND work out it did.  The Bucs dominated the field with scoring coming from both the forwards and center field.  Defense worked strong and the goalies made some great stops.  The JL Long Bucs team defeated the Badgers 6-2 in a well played game by both teams.  A surprise visitor was also sitting on the sidelines with the parents as Mrs. Barnett, JL Long Principal came to watch the exciting win!
