back to DasMagic menuWrapUp from 10-05-2008
The problem of missing opportunities is our season-long running theme, but, this week, we won in spite of that albatross. Das Magic finished its first season in the first division with a solid fifth place finish, a single victory from third. It felt good to finish the season with a 3-0 victory against fellow south side team: Lemont FC.
Chris Roe showed up about fifteen minutes into the match and about three minutes later, Das was on the board with a 1-0 lead. He took a hard shot right at the keeper, but also at a rock or mound of dirt right in front of the goalie. The ball bounced up and over his reach and into the back netting.
The defense stood strong for its second shut out of the year (both against Lemont!) while the offense pushed forward and pressured the opposition into mistakes. The repeated attempts finally resulted in a goal for Jimmy off a sweat cross from Ben S: 2-0, Das Magic.
The final goal of the regular season was a glorious connection from Jimmy to Erich for the 3-0 final score (see the Golden Boot for further description). On to the playoffs, let's take home a Cup!
Who wants to be the hero?See you there
