back to DasMagic menuWrapUp from 06-21-2009
The delay with this week's wrap up has as much to do with me being busy as it does with me being pissed off. With twenty-six guys rostered, We get twelve players to show up on consecutive weeks. Worse than then that, only a few guys are actually telling me they are not going to be there......ridiculous, absolutely ridiculous!
On to the match. I was driving back from Toronto during the most of the first half, so, I don't know all the details. When I arrived at about the thirty-five minute mark, we were holding onto a 1-0 lead with no subs. Thank goodness that we were playing the road match on a Das Magic size field. Found out later, we took the lead with a great header by JoshWith less than two minutes remaining in the period, a mishandled ball in the defense was put away by the opposition to make it 1-1 at the break.
Chad nailed a left-footer from the corner of the penalty area early in the second half to give Das Magic a 2-1 lead. As we tired out with only one sub now and Bernardo collecting his second yellow for a red card ejection, NK Prijedor tied the game with a mis-hit goal.
Das played mostly defensive trying to get a goal on a counter attack, but, with less than ten minutes left, a deflected ball was crossed into the middle. They easily scored when the cross cleared the head of our last defender and left Eddy one on one with a bad angle on the shooter.
Time was ticking away and a loss seemed imminent. A last desperate push foward resulted in almost the same goal for us that Prijedor just scored. Josh B was on the receiving end of a great cross field pass. He calmly knocked the ball into the netting to secure a well-earned 3-3 tie.
We are technically on 'summer break', but, with all the games that need to be made up, we may be playing sooner than later. Watch your email.
