Honre called it, then he did it. When numbers were looking slim, Henry ‘volunteered’ to come to the match, only if he was awarded the Golden Boot outright regardless of his performance. At that point, we only had about eight confirmed players, I would have given away to the future Das Magic Clubhouse.
The number situation resolved itself and I emphatically stated pre-game that our deal was off, he would have to let his soccer do the talking. He, somewhat surprisingly, did it
Early in the first half off some nice work in the deep right offensive corner of the field by Alex and a cross by Chris Roe, Henry made a well-timed and well-positioned run across the goal mouth. He ran through the ball and knocked in a knee/chest ball with the goalie diving and the defender hanging on his heels.
Not only did he tally the goal, he continued to play simple, solid ‘tippy-tap’ soccer on the top in the second half. Love it when an ‘old guy’ wins once in a while!
Who wants it next game, I see something..............
