What a beautiful, amazing, last game! It was worth it to get up at 5 AM every week, and train those seemingly endless hours in the blazing afternoon sun. Thank you to everyone who made my last soccer season a successful, fun, and just over all amazing and beautiful memory.
Our school was able to get a bus that sat 50 people to go to watch the game which took place at the Country Day School. I didn’t get to play the whole game, in fact I only played for about 4 minutes, but all the time that I spend waiting on the sidelines disappeared when the referee blew his whistle, and what seemed like the entirety of my high school came running from the bleachers, and we ran to them, and we hugged and screamed and jumped and screamed some more. Then we all go into a circle, and I held Ioav’s hand, we prayed, and for one last glorious time, Ariana chanted “1, 2, 3..” and everyone rang in “FALCONS!” It was the most perfect moment, and one I’ll never forget.
