Last night, the Panther's played their last game of the season, to determine whether or not they would go to the championships - they won their game, 34-0! They have only had one loss all season! We have been so proud of Christian - the whole season he has played like a champ, he was a good sport, played fair and was a good teammate! In the video, it shows their team doing a Samoan war chant. They do this at the beginning and the end of each game. I couldn't get any closer. . . and it was dark . . .and there were lots of giggles by our sweet Averi in the background, so what you see is what you get! Don't forget to turn off my music.
They played hard...
They were tough...and a little tired...:0)
But, they were good sports, and walked away. . . champions!
One thing I really admired about these kids, was their good sportsmanship. Good sportsmanship is about playing by the rules, learning discipline, having respect for yourself and the other team, and having self-control. A good sport has fun because they enjoy playing the game more than the final outcome. These kids had good coaches who taught them how to be good sports, whether they won or lost. One rule we should teach our kids about being a good sport is to be able to, lose without pouting and win without gloating. That way, everyone is a winner!
Have a great week-end!
