FC BrewHaHa Game Summary
May 26th, 2004
2 - 2 Win vs. Brownian Motion
Brian: We tied these folks last time, but I think that was
a different team because last time I had, "In fact they
were great sports, making this game fun. They also passed
the ball very well, and managed to control a lot
of the first half."
Mike: Yeah, I read that summary before the game, and expected them to be a little friendlier than they were. Well I guess it evens out, because
Destroyers from last week were *way* friendlier than they were the first time around.
Brian: Well this time it was different - we controlled much of
the first half. An early nice rush with Grant and I going
2-on-1, Grant made a nice pass to me, and I had all the
time in the world to line up a shot on their goalie who
was way out of position to make it 1-0. We had some more
nice chances in the first half, thanks to great crosses from
Marie. Good passing, and we did seem to control the ball for
much of the game. Solid play from Gael in goal.
In the second half, they started early with several corner kicks.
On one of these corner kicks (that should have been a goal kick)
the wind caught the ball and took it straight into the goal.
The lone ref was
tested, as play got more physical. I'd say he called it
fairly evenly, but missed some, obviously. Mike got
labeled the bad guy for going "uuuuh ooooh uuuuh" or whatever
the other team's guy was trying to say after he (other team's guy) smacked into his own player. Etc etc.
Mike: The good news was that the incident gave us the opportunity to see what may have been once of the best gorilla impressions you will ever
see during a game of soccer. Yes, apparently since the other guy was stupid enough to run into his own player, then kick her, then realizing he kicked
her kick me as well, I am the gorilla. He probably just has a small *****.
Brian: Lots of opportunities for us, many from great crosses. Grant had
a few close header opportunities. (He's a strong guy, I learned on
one of them where he decided to head me and the ball) But no luck
capitalizing. Their star forward got a ball at center and went in
on goal. Mike made him take a difficult shot, but he managed to put
it short and high to make it 2-1. Ugh. We didn't deserve to be
behind. But we fought on and ultimately DiCarlo went in on a very
"efficient" pass from Arthur and created a nice rebound that Marie managed to put in. The game ended 2-0. Too bad we didn't win this
one, but good that we fought back for the tie.
Mike: Technically the game ended 2-2, but who's counting? Lots of great opportunities as Brian mentioned, we definitely could have nabbed a
couple more. I assume this means everyone is saving them up for the Dweebs this summer?
