Twas the Weekend of District Cup

by Christine Reder

Twas the weekend of District Cup, when all about the grass

All the players were stirring, waiting for a pass.

All eleven carefully placed on the field with care

In hopes that a gold trophy soon would be there.

The Crew arose up early and out of their beds

While visions of blasting their opponents danced in their heads.

And Craig and Gabe at the helm

Stood on the sideline about to be overwhelmed.

When out on the lawn there arose such a matter

The parents and coaches making such chatter.

The Crew had come to take names

Winning not one, two, three, but four shutout games.

Now Aidan! Now Max! Now Austin and Cameron

On Chris! On, Connor! On, Dallas and Matt!

To the top of the goal! To the top with the ball!

Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!

A few obstacles stood in the way,

but there was no stopping them today

With Jake coaching from the side and Ryan and Andy determined to play.

The team spoke a few words, but went straight to work.

They held their own with the Storm, this achievement a major perk.

Now Sam and Nick! Now Sammy! Now Tony and Wyatt

Put your game on; It's time for a riot!

Getting even with the Blast was what the team would do.

The Crew came to show them they would stick together like glue.

The team sprang to their feet, as the ref gave a whistle

And away they all flew like the down of a thistle.

"We are the champions" was heard as we all drove out of sight.

Happy District Cup to all, and to all a good night!
