Most weeks the golden boot is awarded for an
entire exceptional game, a stellar goal, or superb overall
defensive showing....This week, it was largely earned on
a single flash of brilliance at a critical point
in the match.
Reed started off the 'boot competition' with
a well executed turn on the offensive endline off a
throw in. He followed that up with a cross to the
goal mouth for a headed finish by chad, putting us
in the lead. Tremendously solid defense by Filipe
and Trent down the middle kept the Celtic attach off
balance for the entire game (save a single play).
Several players contributed with solid finishes.
But, early in the second half, shortly after we gained a tenuous
2-1 lead, the G.M. made a diving (kind of..) save.
Moving to his right for a well struck ball from about
25 yards out. His save kept the Das Magic in the
lead and set the table for the eventual blow out
as 'Das' marched toward first place.
Eric hoisted the Golden Boot, along side the
Das Magic Fall Golf Classic trophy a.k.a 'mini-me',
like a proud new papa showing off his new 'twins'
Who wants it next week............ I have a
feeling, Lincoln Park will bring out some brilliant
