Out in the department of Sonsonate at the Community development project of El Maizal the finals of the Copa del Obispo took place. Competition was fierce (one of our girls received a black eye in a scrape-- a little lesson on Christian love may be in order-- though maybe we have a future priest on our hands, you gotta be tough to be a priest here!). In the heat and dust the teams scrapped hard on the field prepared by Inginiero Cabezas and his crew, which included some ERD volunteers. At the end of the day the trophies were bestowed by the Bishop, 1st place in the boys division to San Pablo Letran who defeated San Andres Apostol in the final match in sudden death. The boys from San Andres Apostol told Amy that they were actually happy for the team from San Pablo Letran since it was their first championship. Their is a kindredness between the two teams since the team from San Pablo Letran is from the mission church that was started by San Andres Apostol. She was very proud of their sportsmanship and grace in defeat. In the girls division the girls team from La Divina Providencia from El Maizal won the championship. We had to leave early to get back for the San Andres Apostol Colegio's graduation and learned the scores when Amy called up our feisty backfielder to find out who won. She failed to mention her black eye in the conversation. -Vince
