Changing it up: soccer

I shot the Canada vs U.S. women's under-20 soccer game today. It was fun!

I'll post one (my favorite) picture here.

USA won 2-1. I have a feeling I will be missing light like this (even harsh direct sunlight) when I am shooting soccer at NAU in the pitch black of night at 3200+ ISO on a 200mm lens that barely gets me 50' onto the field. I used my (cheap) 70-300mm f/3.5-5.6 zoom for the game. It did pretty well, although I still had to wait until the players were on my half of the field.
