AJ just completed his second season of middle school soccer. (And next year he'll actually be in middle school!) It was a very successful season for the West Jessamine Colts, finishing the regular season with one loss and one tie, then winning the conference tournament for the second year in a row. AJ led the team with 17 goals scored on the season, including back-to-back 3-goal games in the conference tournament. Here is one of his goals during the semi-final game.
In the conference championship game, with the game tied 0-0 and less than 3 minutes remaining, AJ made a push, drawing the defense to his side, and crossed a perfect pass to an open teammate for the game-winning goal. There was much rejoicing.
