Last week I shot the Class B, District 5 soccer tournament in York.  A two day event in generally cold and blustery conditions.  That didn’t keep the games from being pretty good.  Soccer is an interesting sport to shoot because the field is so big and the action takes place all over the place.  It’s not like football where you have an idea of where each play is going to go.  And it’s not like tennis where the ball is going to the person you’re photographing.  So we follow the ball and try to anticipate plays on corner kicks and find the person heading the ball before it gets there.  The best part about soccer and tournament play in particular is the reaction to goals.  In the first image today Hastings celebrates it’s overtime goal to put them up 2-1 over Central Catholic.  That also ended up being the final score.  After the end I was able to get a shot of the other side of the field as a Central Catholic player reacts to the celebration in the background. 

On the girls field I was able to get another happy shot, this time of Northwest after they scored their only goal of their game against Hastings on a buzzer beater shot.  They ended up falling 2-1.
