WAIKIKI, Hawai'i -
Aloha Auburn Fans!
Day three in Hawaii and it's our most important one so far, Game Day! We started the day off with the usual team breakfast and team meeting. The food was amazing once again. After breakfast and the meeting it was straight to business with two hours of study hall. Yes, we are in Hawaii buts it's important to keep with our studies! After study hall we were able to watch most of the football game and support our fellow Auburn Tigers! Thankfully we came out with the win! War Eagle! It also gave us some motivation to play hard in our game; seeing that we were playing for the same University.
We had our pre-game lunch while watching the game. After lunch we had some more down time to relax and mentally prepare for the nights game. After watching some more Auburn football it was time to concentrate on our own game and have out pre-game meeting.
At 5:00pm it was time to load up the bus and head for the field. On the bus our team was individually preparing ourselves to play. Some of us listened to our Ipods, while others listened to the bus radio. When we got to the field we started warming up making sure that when 7:00pm rolled around we were ready to play!
The game started out a little rough for our team, but we came back from being down a goal to tie the game up. After two well fought overtimes from both teams, the game ended in a tie (1-1). Not the result we were looking for, but I and everyone is proud of the effort we gave in the second half and two overtimes.
A wonderful dinner was prepared for both teams after the game. After everyone finished eating it was time to head back to the hotel. With everyone being exhausted from the game we had a nice quiet ride back.
We are all looking forward to a great day tomorrow visiting Pearl Harbor and taking a mini-cruise to Diamond Head. Thank you all for reading about our trip and War Eagle!
