FC BrewHaHa Game Summary
June 16th, 2004
5 - 1 Win vs. United
Okay, so this one started off VERY exciting. Mike
is away, and I'm trying to figure out which field
we're on, so I call Mike. Then dinosaur ref himself
comes over and starts telling me which field to
play on, how to put up the nets etc etc. I'm thinking
Mike would have the red card by now, but then it
turns out he isn't even reffing our game.
Yowsers. Well United turned out NOT to be LSI United,
the team that we whipped last year. But yes, I still
remember that you have clicked on the score to get here.
Basically they pass quite well, but are just pretty slow.
Oh yeah, their defense isn't so hot either. On our side,
sub PJ hurt her knee early, and was done for the night.
We hope you are better soon, maybe tomorrow, PJ?!
Our scoring began with a pass to Brian down the right
wing from Jeannette. I sent a high, fairly random
cross that found DiCarlo on the far post. A brilliant
header from Jeff made it 1-0. Ramsey would have been
proud. Shortly afterward, Marie, who was making great
passes all game made a short pass to me on the 18.
Seeing DiCarlo covered, I decided to try the long high
shot a-la Jeannette, which found the corner for 2-0.
Lots of strong defense from our own end. Omar, our sub
goalie made some good saves in the first half. Arthur
was solid at sweeper, and Daniel was convinced to make
an end-to-end run by the unanimous vote. Xiaojian and
Bea were, as usual, solid as well, continually frustrating
their players by stealing balls.
Meanwhile, Xiaojian took a ball in from Marie, and beat
a couple of their defenders before making a nice little
pass to me so that I could go 1-on-1 with the goalie.
He almost stopped my little low shot, but it rolled in
for 3-0, how the half ended.
In the second half they had more chances, as we were tiring
from our lack of subs. But we still managed to work the ball
up. After their goalie got lucky and stopped Jeff, we sent
him in alone again and he scored this time. Soon afterward,
Jeff made a great through pass to me, catching the goalie
out of position for an easy goal.
Nice as it would be to say we held them scoreless, they
got lucky. A battle in front of our goal, and their tall
girl made a *perfect* cross to their guy behind Omar for
their goal. He was probably off sides, but they deserved
A reasonable team to play against - they got more mad at
themselves than at us, and they commented that we were a
very clean team to play against. Nice to hear after you
win 5-1, so let's have fun again tomorrow when they come
back harder at us.
Oh yeah - Omar wanted everyone to know that having a beer
on our uniforms means we should actually drink them after
the game. Burgers were half price at St. John's. $3.99
pitchers tomorrow - mmmm! Maybe Skipper will make a surprise
