Quick Note

So we lost our first soccer game. It was a close game and we scored first, but they got a lucky bounce close to the end of the game that bounced off their player and went in close to the end of the game. The game was just how I like it... really rough, they were a pretty cocky team and very dirty and got lucky with a ref that ran around the center circle the entire game because he was too lazy to run back and fourth. He relied on the linesmen for calls they didn't have to make.
I think we did really we considering most of us didn't know each others name to call out to each other for the ball. Most of us had just met either earlier that week or the day of the game. The other team had been playing together for a few years. To add to the difficulty of us communicating on the field, three quarters of the team speaks french. I do not understand most of what they say because I can barely speak/understand french at all. Luckily a lot of them can understand english and speak it enough for us to talk to each other...but there's always a lot of whats? and Huh's? When they talk to each other they speak in french so I miss a lot of what they are talking about. But I kind of like how we are a bilingual team. It's probably just a little annoying for the coach to have to say everything in french and then say it again in english to the four of us that are english.
