Sideline stampede

It’s always best to report the headline, not become part of it. “Photographer crushed in high school girls soccer stampede”. Not the way you wanna go.

I shot the championship game of the (insert name of soft drink company) Soccer Showdown between Barrington and Glenbrook South at (insert name of car company in the news because of accelerator problems) Park in Bridgeview this weekend. There were more sponsors than fans in the stands.

My favorite shot came at the very end of the game, when Barrington players celebrated as the final two seconds click off the clock. Lucky for me, they managed to go around me.

  1. Awesomeness. The faces, the scoreboard in the background, the pony tails, the shadows on the turf, those airborne girls….

    Too bad they didn’t at least knock you down a little.
