5-1 Win vs. Quiksilver
July 20th, 2003
Quicksilver are arguably one of the weaker teams
in the summer league. However, the 1:45 HOT time
slot slowed us down at the start. That and us not
really showing much fight for the ball. The first half
started with quite a few off sides calls against us.
Quicksilver like to try to push us off sides, which is
kind of stupid, considering we are much faster than
they are, and it just gives us more field in which
DiCarlo can chase lead passes.
We did have quite a few chances early on. Sadly, it
is hard for me to forget one of the better ones - when
I got a breakaway and then missed the goal.
Deserving mention is the great hustle from Barbara on
the right wing. Too bad she left after the first half!
Finally things got better - a corner kick snuck it's way
through to DiCarlo for a nice shot to finish it. Shortly
afterward, Marie beat a defender on a pass from Mike, and
took a typical Marie shot from the left to beat the goalie
high to make it 2-0.
However, our lead didn't last long. The combination of
not-so-aggressive defense and a good shot from the 18 lead
to Quicksilver's first goal against us in quite a few games,
I don't remember much about the first half really, as the heat
fried my brain. There was great hustle on D from Heather and
Mike in particular.
The second half started out stronger for us, with us controlling
the game more-or-less. In fact I don't think Clark got much
action at all in the second half, but it was still a good game
to watch, as I can attest.
More scoring - I haven't much of a clue on this one, but DiCarlo
got away from their defense and scored on a lead pass from Mike.
A bit later on, the scene repeated. Skipper claims he was off side,
and stayed out of the play so Jeff could score. Personally I think
Skip deserves an assist just for noticing!
The final goal was the one to remember. An Erin throw-in down the
line to DiCarlo - way to notice him breaking, Erin - started the
play. Jeff made a GREAT cross to Ramsey for one of the the
prettiest header finishes in Brewhaha history. Jeff still wonders
how he made such a good pass. Admit it Jeff, you thought Ramsey
was the goal post. Anyway, great goal!
That's how the game ended: 5-1. I can't remember much except
having no energy all game. In general, the women played GREAT, with
no subs in the second half. Refs were okay, once they learned how
to call foul-throws, but were not really a factor in the game.
Pretty good hustle all around, and we are going to need that
next week when we play a tougher team.
