Cumberland's U14G division 2 team (Coryn's team) beat Saco again, dominating most of the game and winning the finals!

Cumberland's U14G division 1 team (Ari's team) beat the other Saco team then faced Gorham in the finals. Gorham beat PAYSA 6-2 in their semifinal and was considered by all to be the heavy favorite for the win -- and the overall win at the State Cup level when all is said and done. The final went 1-1 through over time and into sudden death where at the last minute Gorham scored, ending the game. Gorham was heavily favored and every single girl on the Cumberland team stepped up their game. Ari managed to shut down Kirsten (fear and dread by defenders) and played about 10 times the game I've ever seen her play. She was controlled, on target, and carried the ball several times. It was all beautiful to watch. They walked away second in the tournament and quite pleased at the outcome.

I had a great time. Of course, Maine weather this time of year being what it is, Friday was near 80 and hot. Saturday was mid seventies and hot. Today was misty and in the 50's. We're all tired -- some of us old people just from watching.

Here are some sensible rules for web site advertisingAn increasing number of websites are now detecting when users have ad-blocking enabled, and refuse to show content unless you "whitelist" their site (disable your ad-blocking for them). I think that is a fair decision on their part, it's how they pay for the site. However, if you want me (and many others) to white list your site, there are some rules you should follow. If you violate these rules, I won't whitelist your site, I'll just find content elsewhere. 1. The total space taken up by advertisements ......
