It's an adult beginner league. Everybody learned to play the game together, then we became our own team. The nice thing is that we all bonded, the bad thing is that we're playing against teams formed 2, 3, 4, and 5 years ago.

This last game it was against against the team who started 2 years ago. They went through all of last season losing every game by 10 or so goals. Now we're the low team on the totem pole, and so they took out their frustrations on us. I don't think they were being super malicious in trying to run up the score as they were trying to get other people the opportunity to score who may not have in the past. I guess I can understand wanting to celebrate your first goal, but when the score is 19-2, perhaps you want to temper it a bit...
