back to DasMagic menuWrapUp from 05-10-2009
It was just another typical day in chicagoland. It was sunny and 65, then rainy and 60 and then windy and 70.
Das Magic played a pretty unpredictable game as well. At times we played fast(relatively ) and smart (relatively )
In the first half, we seemed to have control of the game and had a few scoring opportunities. The West Indies Jets played a long ball deep and due to a few defensive miscues they scored on a well struck shot. Moments later, Alex went in strong for a ball in the box and was fouled and awarded a PK. He opted to take it an buried it in the back of the net. 1-1.
Just before the end of the half Irish took a freekick from 10 yards outside the box. He hit it perfectly into the side netting to give us the lead. We played pretty even for the most of the second half and in what I believe was the best play of the game we stretched the field made 5-6 consecutive passes from the outside right to the endline and a perfect pass across net to Chris Roe to make it 3-1. The Jets scored one more with 10 to go and pressured a little. We were able to hold them off for the victory.
See you next week at 5:30.
