In recent years, I'm normally home for Labor Day weekend enjoying BBQ with the family and sitting on my deck. This Labor Day weekend was much different, however.
FRIDAY- I worked in the office from 10:30 till 3:30. Then I worked the Men's Soccer game against at 4 which finished with the Hoyas defeating the Northeastern Huskies in double OT! Then afterwards, I was in the office till 9:30 preparing for my weekend of field hockey games as we would take on La Salle and Temple.
SATURDAY- It was my first weekend with Ryan Sakamoto on the road with the football team, so I was a little nervous going into the game. I wouldn't have much to worry about because I did have BaBar to my left which put me at ease. The field hockey had an exciting game as La Salle and Georgetown exchanged goals back and forth with the Hoyas eventually prevailing 6-4 on Annie Wilson's six point effort (2 goals, 2 assists) .
SUNDAY- The Hoyas took on the Temple Owls which featured a matchup of two 3-0 teams in the young season. Ryan Sakamoto was back in the press box fresh off of very little sleep and a win for the Hoyas football team over Davidson with a score of 20-10. At William I. Jacobs, the Hoyas played their hearts out, but fell to the Owls in a tough 2-0 loss.
MONDAY- At North Kehoe Field, the Women's Soccer team would take on the Fairfield University Stags. The Hoyas would go on to defeat the Stags 2-1 in OT on a beautiful corner kick by Samantha Baker which was definitely a crowd pleaser and the stands filled with excitement after.
To conclude my weekend on the Hilltop, I helped out by working the second game of the DC Invitational which had George Mason and American playing the second match.
Overall, it was a very exciting weekend to be in the District and definitely a fun weekend. It didn't consist of burgers, my deck or Mom's cooking, but it was a LABORING Labor Day weekend. It's weird how things change in a year.
