Jessica scores her second goal

We’re so excited about Jessica scoring for the second time this season. This is her 7th season playing soccer and she had yet to score. We’ve been encouraging her to go towards the goal more frequently but she plays her position (middle midfield) just as she’s been taught and rarely drives to the goal. In her first game of the season she made a huge kick that went in the air and over the goalies head to score. It surprised everyone since she doesn’t have a big leg but she got all of it and in it went. Angie didn’t get that goal on video though. This time she did. She and the coach had been practicing penalty kicks at practice Thursday and she was picked as the designated penalty kicker. Her opportunity came and she punched it in as she practiced.

Long suffering Texas Rangers fan

Angie roots for the Dallas Stars, Dallas Cowboys and the Texas Rangers. I don’t think she’s going to have a very good year.

This photo was taken in 1997 at Candlestick Park when the Texas Rangers and the San Francisco Giants played their first interleague game. This was also Jessica’s first Major League ballgame. Angie has come a long way waiting for the Rangers to be in the World Series.
