On Sunday, the Rynard Clan gathered at Nana’s for an Easter feast. It was a glorious buffet of Ham, Potatoes, Salad and I’ll stop there or else I’ll start to drool. The Grand-kids worked up quite an appetite after an intense soccer match took place at the nearby park.
The match featured some fresh faces as Robbie and Kathryn made their first appearances in the Rynard Sport League. It also had aging superstar Eric who was battling a bad back and forced to stay back as a goalie. The team of James, Leslie, Ryan and Nicolas got out to an early lead due to some poor goaltending on Eric’s part, but the veteran eventually settled down and made some keep stops. His team responded with Brad leading the way scoring 3 goals to bring the match to a 3-3 tie.
In overtime, both teams exchanged chances with the save of the game goes to Robbie reaching behind his back to grab a shot from Brad, pretty amazing for a guy who takes up 1/10th of the net. But in the end an unlikely hero emerged. Kathryn booted the ball high in the air and Cary began to charge. No defender could stop him as he ran right down the middle full speed and could have easily knocked over anyone else on the team. He gave a swift kick which caught Robbie the keeper off guard.
It was an eventful match and first of the season with many more expected to happen throughout the 2010 season.
