The first Golden Boot award of the season for Das Magic's first game in the 1st Division was up for grabs going into the final ten minutes of the match against Stare Byke ('Old Bulls' in Polish...not a bad moniker).
The newcomer Josh Bussiere, only registering with the Illinois State Soccer Association two days before the match, tallied our first goal of the new season was definitely a front runner. Trent, the Canadian import, showed with a stellar defensive performance especially winning several key headers in dangerous situations. After the opponent tied the game 2-2 with less then ten minutes left in the game, the door opened for some other Magician to claim the Boot for the week. Coming off a year and a half break recovering from knee surgery, Mark Mitchell, stepped up to score the winning goal. After intercepting a weak defensive clear, 'Mitch' tracked toward the goal beating the fullback to the inside and stuffing a left-footer high over the keeper's right hand.
Who wants it next game, I see something..............
