The high school soccer season is well underway, but due to my travel schedule and the wet spring weather, my opportunities to photograph the games have been limited.
But I did make it to yesterday’s game, when Clarke County traveled to Front Royal, Virginia, to play Warren County. It was a tough match up, and the JV team finished in a 0-0 tie. No goals were scored, but that doesn’t mean there wasn’t action for me to follow!
In fact, sometimes I think these defensive games prove just as exciting because the intensity happens all over the field and isn’t concentrated at the goals. I enjoyed walking up and down the sidelines photographing some of the players in the back of the field, whom I don’t ordinarily shoot.
Cameron played up front as one of the strikers, but he was regularly on the defensive as well, taking some pretty powerful hits. He had a few runs and shots on goal, but, unfortunately, none of them went his way last night. Nevertheless, it was fun to get out and photograph the game, and, despite the frigid temperatures, the action on the field was heated, making for some fun images.
