Matadors vs. Buffalos

Our Mighty Matadors lost their Homecoming game against Clemens Buffalos last night. Our boys managed 2 touchdowns, one very early in the game but just couldn't seem to inch past those Buffalos again. It seems especially disappointing to lose our Homecoming game but we'll be right back out there watching them in Boerne next week.

Because it was Homecoming, the dancers and band did not perform at half time, but performed after the game. It was great to see so many people stay after the game was over to watch and support them!

It was a little chilly last night...the first game I've needed a jacket! I for one enjoy football seasons when it stays warm enough for no jackets at all!

I've been experimenting with more manual settings on my camera. I found some recommendations for my camera specifically for shooting night football games so I tried them out. Back to the drawing board....the photos have an overall bluish tint and I still didn't capture the action shots quite like I wanted.
Here are Michelle and Heather in the "Victory Line" before the game.


At halftime the Starsteppers and the Matador Band took the field to help present the Homecoming Court.

Because it was chilly, Cathy took the dancers into the gym for their warmup time.

Cathy prays with the Starsteppers before every performance. That impresses me so much! Thank you, Cathy for taking such good care of our girls!
