We needed this one! After dropping or tying several games this season when we should have easily put away the opponent, we needed to win (or at least tie) against Lemont. A team that was in the top three teams in the table and made up of mostly sub-twenty-five year old boys. The field was big and we are old! Thank goodness for guile and Chris Roe in the middle!
Eddy V was in the goal for Das Magic and for most of the game continued to retrieve errant shots and set up goal kick for Trent. But, with a 0-0 tie and momentum in our favor, a quick attach by Lemont left our far-post flank exposed to a volly the had 1-0 written all over it. Eddy pulled a page out of his old days playing third base and knocked the ball away with ease.
Timmy N toughed it out after a sprained ankle and worked some combinations with Ben Shep. and Chris R to hit the post twice in the final minutes of the match. The victory would have been sweet and positioned us nicely for the top six going into the second half of the season. But, it was not to be. We need a victory against mid-level NK Prijedor this week to put us in the top half of the table and give us an opportunity for revenge!
