The first match of the new season and the most seasoned play on the squad was making a solid bid to be the first Golden Boot winner of the 2011 campaign. The former G.M. was moving well in the middle of the field in his slightly more svelt figure; Erich ran the middle third of the pitch with some abandon.
While the voting was tight in the first half, Irish left the rest of the competitors in the dust in the second half. Compiling five points with two goals and the assist on the other goal in the 3-0 victory.
The new father scored a couple for his Mother, his wife and his daughter on Mother's day. The first was the result of some tenacious defense and forcing the defense into a bad clearance ball. The errant pass deflected off Johnathon and dropped directly in his path to the goal. A soft chip to the far corner beat the goalie over his head and started the scoring 1-0, Das Magic. Not much longer into the second half, Irish again broke down the right side. Chad or Johnny hit him with a crossing pass to the near post and Irish had a surgical finish underneath the outstretched arms of the keeper.
To put the final nail in the coffin, Irish delivered a great pass to Paul H in stride, just over the midfield mark. Paulie worked hard to scoop up the ball and leave the sweeper in his dust. He made easy work of the goalie to finish our scoring at 3-0, tallying a few of his own 'Boot' votes.
Who wants it next game, I see something..............
