It feels really good, but you’re giving me too much credit, because I only have 4 clean sheets according to Can-West.
One of the more intense moments this year was after half time one game, when captain Scott Gilroy threw me a water bottle (a below average toss) and it exploded on the field. I was left without anything to wet my whistle with for the first 20 minutes of the half. But on a serious note, there is one big save that stands out. Our first game against Mount Royal, there was a scramble in our box and the ball squirted (unlike my water bottle) to one of their strikers at the penalty spot. I was blinded by all of the bodies in the box, and dove full stretch to my left to save the ball.
For home games, I arrive at the field an hour and twenty minutes prior to kick off and listen to my GBS playlist to pump myself up and get mentally prepared for the game.
Playing against the reigning national champions in Victoria is going to be our biggest test this year thus far for sure. Every game with Victoria is a hard fought battle, which makes for a fun and exciting game to play in. Fraser Valley has been doing well this year and is rumoured to have a good team, so it will definitely be a tough weekend to come away with 6 points.
I would like to be in PAC 118, PAC 160, and PAC 111 (soccer class, gymnastics class, and basketball class, respectively.)
