Field Soccer in Saang

When I go to Saang, typically I see men fishing, working on their sugar cane field, folks playing volleyball or cards (and gambling) or not doing a whole lot. 

Finding a healthy outlet for a young man could be challenging given the landscape of Saang. One outlet that has sprung up in an official form is soccer. Several boys from the church I attend in Saang (Gospel Community Church of Saang) have formed a team and have really taken the sport seriously. One afternoon on the way home, I stopped by a vacant field to capture a few shots of them practicing for their first game. Here's a little glimpse. By the way, they played really hard their first game and lost, BUT their second game was a victory - 4-2. So proud of these guys!
