A close game

Brennan had a hockey game tonight. It was an away game. We played a tough team, and it was a close game. They scored, we scored. They scored, we scored. They scored, we scored. At this point the game was tied 3 to 3. Is it wrong to pray over a hockey game? The boys had worked so hard this last week, and I really wanted them to taste the fruits of their labors. I prayed that they would play their best, and in the end feel good about their effort. Hopefully that's okay to pray for. :) Then we broke the pattern and the littlest guy on Bren's team scored! Awesome job Kenneth! Brennan thinks he weighs like 85 pounds and he goes up against these great big high school guys with no fear! The crowed erupted. It was so exciting.

There was a few minutes left in the game and all we had to do was keep them from scoring. With no penalties all game we get two in the last few minutes, and two of our players have to sit out. The other team pulled their goalie out so he could help them score so it was basically 6 against 3. I couldn't believe how slowly the clock was moving. Finally, time ran out, and we won 4 to 3. I was so happy for these boys. Things don't always work out the way they should, I'm glad they did tonight.
