Sports Shots: Watching and learning
Coach Scott Lucas and the Alton United 11U soccer team Monday at the Oiler Soccer Classic in East Alton.
The girls from the Alton United 11U girls soccer team take some time Monday at the end of their practice to watch the Roxana Shells take on the Jersey Panthers in the Oiler Soccer Classic.
"We wanted to watch and see how the high school girls played on the field," 11-year-old Darcy McGwire said.
Coach Scott Lucas stood behind the girls, pointing out situations for the girls to pay attention to, like corner kicks.
"It's always a good idea to watch older or more experienced players on the field."Lucas said. "Practice was just about over, so we thought we'd come over and watch the Shells."
