The last game started at 0900 and the temperature was at 80F. The playing time was reduced and plenty of water breaks were provided.
The other team did not have all of their players so some of Ise's team were red-shirted and played on the other side. And yes, at least one of them scored points for the other team.
It got warmer by the minute. It was even hot sitting in the shade on the bench. But you can see these kids were really trying.
This is a shot of Ise kicking the ball back into play from the end of the field. He gave it a real good kick.
Ise's Dad, Mom and his new baby sister attended the game. They remained in the shade to keep the sun off of the baby.
Here is a picture of Ise having just exited the Victory Tunnel. I didn't try to keep up with the score, but I guess it was a victory for someone. For my money, any kid still playing was a winner regardless of team affiliation.
This a closeup of Ise about a half hour after the game sitting in the shade over at the park waiting for his pizza and trophy. You can tell he was wiped.
