back to DasMagic menuWrapUp from 09-09-2007
We are officially into the fall of 2007, but still playing like 'training camp' is just beginning. Team Das ('Where soccer skill go to die....') looked a bit better, but, that could be because the large 'Conkey' fields are more forgiving of bad trapping and passing.
PK Podrinje jumped to a quick lead with a direct kick from about twenty yards out in the the first ten minutes of play. The well-placed shot beat the G.M. the the upper right side. For the remainer of the half, Das Magic dominated play and controlled the flow of play, registering between five and ten corner kicks. Although there were several shots on goal, none was hard enough or well placed enough to make it passed their solid goal keeping. Eventually, the pressure from Timmy Neighbors hard work on top paid off for him and he scored by tucking the ball in the near, upper corner to tie the match.
Midway into the second half, Timmy was pulled down in the box on another 'hustle' play. After a long wait that included the opposing goalkeeper getting in a screaming fight with one of the player from his own bench, 'The Bulldog' confidently lasered the penalty kick in the the netting to put the 'good guys' up 2-1 with less than fifteen minutes remaining in the game.
Das maintained control and allowed very few opportunities for Podrinje in the offensive zone. Unfortunately, a wind-blown corner kick with less than two minutes left on the clock sailed over the out-stretched hand of Henry and bounce off a surprised Fulton into the goal to give us the final result: 2-2.....
Das Magic again takes on PK Podrinje as Das Magic stadium next sunday at 10:00am.
