The End of an Era

Cory's team played back-to-back games last Friday-the Semi-finals and the Finals. 
It was intense. Sometimes we were down, sometimes we were ahead. Mostly it was neck and neck, basket for basket up until the very end when both times, Cory's team was able to pull ahead and the opposing team missed.
Talk about a nail-biter!  And after two games, my nerves were shot. 
During the middle of the semi-final game, Cory's wrist got stuck between two players and was bent all the way back. *OUCH!*
(You can see him nursing it in the photo above.)
Right before the final game, the sweetest lady, who just happened to work for an orthopedic surgeon came out of nowhere, checked it to make sure it wasn't broken (which it wasn't), and taped it up for him; and he was able to play.  
It didn't dawn on me until we got home that this is Cory's last game, and the last time he will probably play with this group of boys. This team has been together since they were in the 8th grade.
It was bitter-sweet. I'm so glad they ended by winning it all!

My parents drove down for most of the tournament games. It was so fun to have them there for Cory's last and final game. They leave in a few days for another LDS mission. We're really going to miss them.
