Today is Thursday. We started off with our typical breakfast. Many of the players were tired and spent part of the morning resting.

We started off with our typical breakfast.  Many of the players were tired and spent part of the morning resting.  There were games being played on campus so some went to watch.  After lunch, the team boarded the bus for Portrush to play their game against Co Armagh – another local team.  The players looked well rested and ready to go.  They started off strong and won 4-0 with KiKe bringing in a Hat Trick.  Yahir scored the other goal.  It was a great win and they were happy to have the Premier team there to cheer them on.  When we got back to the University, we celebrated KiKe’s birthday, he turned 15 on the 28th as well as Matthew and Coach Luis’ birthdays which are both today on the 1st.  Everyone sang and enjoyed cupcakes.

It was late in the day by this point.  Some of the players went back to their rooms to hang out, others went to dinner, and some hung out in the courtyard playing games with some of the younger teams that are staying at the University.  For those who didn’t attend dinner, they enjoyed a nice pasta dinner that they prepared themselves in the kitchen.  

Tomorrow is our last game, which the players are looking forward to.  They are also looking forward to the sight seeing on Saturday and being able to sleep in their own beds on Sunday night.
