This afternoon Matthew made his debut in net with the Don Mills Diamonds. It was the third game of the season but Matthew's first as a goaltender.
He started the game and gave way to the other goalie half way through the game. Matthew allowed four goals but had little or no support from his defencemen. We won handily and 11 year old Matthew was sure excited as we drove home from Toronto!
The Diamonds are made up of boys and young men with various physical or neurological challenges. As I have mentioned in previous posts, Matthew has Asperger's Syndrome, a high-functioning form of autism.
It was a great experience for all of us. We'll be back again December 16th for Matthew's next game.
GOD IS GOOD!
