|June 26th, 2005 vs. Teal Dweebs|
Brian: Teal Dweebs. Purple, teal, they're all Dweebs. Last year we tied them 1-1 in a hard-fought game after we lost Mike to wedlock. This year they came out short quite a few players, making it an easy day for us.
Mike: Some trivia on the Dweebs. The tradition for many years was to make two roughly-equal Dweebs teams, harkening back to the glory days of Red Socks. Last year evidently they tried a bit of an experiment with a Dweebs A (Teal) and a Dweebs B (Purple), but that was a one year only deal, so this summer they are back to pseudo-even teams. I miss Red Socks, he's living in San Diego and evidently having some back problems but rumour is he'll be around for the tournament!
Brian: However, it took a a bit of time to get going before Grant put away a nice shot to make it 1-0. DiCarlo scored on a forward pass from Grant a little while later to make it 2-0. Susan put away a *beautiful* cross from Ramsey to take us into the half up 3-0.
The second half is a bit more of a blur. Plenty of nice goals for us from Thomas, Grant, Jen and Jayson. Memory fades, but they were all nice goals. In paticular, Jen's came after a cross from Susan after Susan basically dribbled around for 5 minutes or so and just lulled the Dweebs into a trance.
Hopefully Marie has recovered from Bronchitis, and will be back next week to claim the scoring race, which Grant and Susan have re-written this week.
Seven goals is a lot to score on the poor Dweebs, who didn't even bring their booze to drown sorrows at 10am. But let's focus on defense for a second. Thanks to us mixing things up with DiCarlo and Brian back, Gael had a chance to show off. A diving save stopped a great header attempt from dweebs. Gael also had a pretty save in the first half. And of course he had plenty of feedback for our forwards!
Nice game team.
Mike: Ouch, 7 goals is a lot. It's a tough one though, I really didn't feel like we were purposefully running up the score, but with all the great play and fresh legs we had, we were bound to run up the score a bit. I'm going to promise some stiffer competition in the coming weeks, but this is a good way to get into the swing of things. But how is it that after 7-0, Marie is still our top scorer and she didn't even play? I guess it means we are sharing the wealth on the scoreboard this season.
