Here is a video of Elizabeth's game winning goal today.
The Holy Cross Crusader girls were playing in the 2nd game of the tournament after they won yesterday. (Elizabeth scored one of the three goals yesterday.) Today the girls were up 1-0 early in the game, but let St. Pius tie the game. The game ended in the 1-1 tie and they went into a shoot-out.
Coach Carrie chose 5 players to shoot and put Abbi in the goal. Holy Cross missed their first 2 kicks, and St. Pius made their first one but our goalie deflected the second. Both teams made the 3rd kick. St. Pius missed their 4th kick but Holy Cross made theirs. St. Pius made the 5th kick, but she had to re-kick it because she kicked before the whistle. She missed it! But, Holy Cross missed their 5th kick too.
The teams went into a sudden death shoot-out which means each team chose one player to kick. Coach Carrie chose Elizabeth. The video tells the rest of the story. Make sure you listen to Paul's commentary as Elizabeth runs away from the goal. Proud big brother.
I'm a really proud mom today too.
