Sweeping Grimly

Sweepers win! After a hard-earned 2-1 lead at halftime, there was some nervousness on the Sweeper side: they’d come out playing really hard in the first half. This was an older, bigger team with good passing skills, but in the end their age was their downfall. In the second half we managed to knock in 3 more goals, including one by yours truly – my first goal as a Grim Sweeper! They were unable to convert on some good chances, and we walked away with our second victory…

Overall a really fun game. Two highlights: Scott got a hat trick(!), and Sierra played like she was born wearing broomball shoes. :) Karen was solid in goal as usual, but after the game confessed she actually liked it better last year when she was taking more shots! Our middle line and defenders have gotten much better lately at keeping it on the boards, poor Karen has been standing around a lot and getting cold! I have a hard time feeling bad about it, though, since it means the rest of us are just doing our job better… Go Sweepers!

    Their age was their donwfall… hmmm. I wonder if they had me on their team if you’d be saying that?! Nice pictures and congrats on a great victory. Go Karen! Go Sierra! Go Nator! And I’m glad you have enough cold weather to play. Snowing here right now, so I hope the roads are ok in the morning. Love you all.

    Way to go team. I’m so glad you put things on here because I know you’re still alive. Glad to see that you’ve at least got some winter weather there so you can play–wouldn’t be able to do that here, we’ve been setting near record highs, darn it—it’s supposed to be winter, not fall or spring.

    Go Sweepers! Sierra, I was worried how you’d adjust to winter weather, but I can see I worried for nothing. I am glad you got to play broomball while you were there. A month ago, who would have guessed you’d be on the ice, and loving it! Especially considering that a month ago you were on the beach.

    Nate, that article about Minneapolis being the funnest city was interesting. I think it’s a great place. You guys are always doing fun things, and I love it there when we go to visit.
