This season of co-ed soccer has been more dramatic than usual. We play Urban Rec with players from our women's team and our two male coaches. Apparently this became frustrating for many of the male dominated teams we were beating, and half way through the season they started to complain that we weren't playing with enough men, when in fact, we were. Along with the politics came dangerous play and verbal jabs which made for an interesting season, but nevertheless, we came out on top.
I love playing sports, and I love playing with women who rise to meet adversity, play through it, and make each other better.
We're not "good for girls." We're just good.
