It was note quite as dramatic as Venus vs. Serena, but it was a sister v. sister competition. Yesterday, the u14 (under fourteen) Blizzards were challenged by the U13 Magic. With seven minutes remaining in the match, Chalupa was tossed into the game to defend the Magic Goal.
When the bench-coach from the Blizzards (who, under normal circumstances coaches both teams separately) saw Chalupa in the net, he moved Peanut into a forward position for a show-down. Some very aggressive play afforded Peanut with two solid shots on goal. Both shots were soundly denied by Chalupa. No hard feelings and no excessive trash-talking. It was all fun for the teams, coaches and parents, and will be a memorable confrontation for our two soccer stars.
