Saturday, March 4th, 2017. A heartbreaker of a loss in the Western Finals against Lincoln Charter. This one will be tough for the players and fans to get over. The Bears led for most of the game and I believe they were the better team, but the season is over. Alan and Charla drove three hours to watch the game and we enjoyed their company. Other than the final outcome, it was a great game to watch. They joined us for dinner afterwards before heading back to Virginia.
Ben played an 8AM game on a frosty field in
Statesville with his PSA 16U travel soccer team. I am super disappointed

watch Jackson's team play. (more soccer photos here)

Saturday, February 25th, 2017 - An exciting, well-executed win over Albemarle in the 3rd round.
The gym was packed. Papa, Izzy and Eric all came to watch the game.
They were tied after one quarter, but the Bears scored 28 points in the second
quarter. Albemarle in contrast only had 27 total points at the break.
