No. Great action angle, well-frozen action, wonderful expressions on thei faces. Guess we looked like that once. Matt

LOL, that would be because I replaced Lom with Soc (for Soccer). It seemed like something he would say, but I'm pretty stupid that way. It comes natural to me.

I think it's a swell sports shot, and I can't imagine a good sports shot not being "in your face." (OK)

I love the angle, the sharply captured angles, the stop-action technique, and most of all the fantastic expressiveness you captured.

The only suggestion I'd have would be to tone down the colors of the uniforms and/or the grass some, so they don't rob any attention from the expressions.
