They took four shots and scored three goals. Das Magic had a hole to dig out of and it seemed like their shovels were broken. Fathers day and the long road trip played havec with our numbers. We began the game two short but quickly garnered a full squad. The mid ninety temperatures and high average age of the players that showed hinted at a long game ahead for the visiting team.
Although the general opinion was that we were playing like shit. It seemed that the ball movement was ok, the finishing: dreadful. The quick three goals from 'GR-04' were well placed, one touch shots from tough angles. Still, with several misses and a goal called back for offside, the magicians were looking at a three goal deficit going into the second half.
Once we stopped yelling at each other and used the short field to tighten up our defensive stance, the momentum started shifting toward the good guys. A makeup handball call, gave Das a chance to cut the lead to two goals, Suda did not let the opportunity pass. Not long after, Suda struck again with a half spin left footer from twenty five or thirty passed the outstretched fingers of the goalie. It was now a 3-2 game. At that point, the opposition seemed to offer little resistance as Das pressured the challangers time and time again. A tighly constructed series of one-touch passes ended with the G.M. dropping the ball from the penalty kick to the top of the box and Mark S. give the play an favorable conclusion.
Tommy Agua added the go ahead goal with a left-footed half volly off a throw in. Timmy N. added the game winner off a pass from 'murillo' after johnny made a full field run to be 'johnny on the spot'. Over all, the team came together under crappy conditions and some inter- squad squabbling to a come back victory...well done!
