This past Saturday my DCU Mercy squad played at Waterford without three of our starting lineup. We were also down 15 points at the half. Yikes. BUT we came back and won and it was such a great feeling! Our younger girls had to step up and they sure did. They were sixteen year-olds holding their own against 20+!!! It was awesome. Loved it. The very next day, I had to coach an Under 20s Cup game, which we won as well. Good weekend out here for DCU Mercy and I can’t wait to see what unfolds.
I’m definitely feeling a little old, though, so I’m looking forward to this break from practice and games while I’m home. Which I’m so excited for!!!! I have neglected to mention that I am flying out of Dublin to Puerto Rico first. Why, you may ask?? My sister is playing in a Christmas tournament there with her college team and I am going to surprise her! She has no idea. Still deciding on whether I should give her a warning or not but if I do it’ll be last minute. I can’t wait to soak up some Puerto Rican sunshine and watch her and her team do work! They are 8-0 currently, I might add. Amazing. After a few days there I will be back in PA to see lots of family and friends. Ahhhh, the most wonderful time of the year!!!!
