Game Notes: Great, sunny day in Houston. Field a bit wet on the edges, but otherwise super mid 60's, light wind and sunshine. Duchesne played well battling tough especially in the first 15-20 minutes. JPII scores on a direct kick to take 1-0 halftime lead. Second half starts with JPII getting up 2-0 then Duchesne fires up the effort after a PK goal to narrow score to 2-1. In the end, JPII prevails winning 4-1 to advance to quarter finals in playoffs.
Photo Notes: Used 300 f2.8 lens except for a few shots with the 70-200 & 1.4x. Ran manual, ISO 100 or 200, f/4 (this is really great for getting a more DOF and more "keepers"). Depending on side of field, got shutter in 1/1250 up to 1/4000 at times. Settled eventually to 1/2500 and then just did any exposure adjustments in RAW in PS CS3. Unfortunately sun forced shooting into parking lot & spectators (not ideal). When possible tried to shoot the other way into the tree background
