Das Game Summary

WrapUp from 08-30-2009

A beautiful Sunday, an hour past noon and we were playing for first place in the Blue Section of the first division. That wasn't enough incentive to gather a full squad of eleven to start the game at full force. Not only that, Henry and Alex B were both injured in the first twenty minutes of the match and, though they toughed it out, they were just taking up space until some stragglers arrive to shore up the numbers.

Even still, Das Magic accepted the challange, and, with the help of a few badly placed shots, took a 0-0 tie into half against one of the best squads we faced all season.

With a 'full squad' (11 'healthy players'), the moment shift was palatable. We were coming at them with full force and little result. SB Red had some decent combinations but no serious chances in the second half. They seemed to have 'blown their load' in the first half. Das alternated between pressured attach and repelling counter attaches....

Then, with less than ten minutes remaining in the match, one of their players was fouled at the top of the penalty box. The ref (correctly) let play continue to their advantage. After breaking left twice, just before releasing the shot, the ref blew the whistle (indicating we should move the ball back to the foul. Unfortunately, for Das Magic, the shot was excellent and the goal was aloud to stand.

Unfair results, but, they were a good team. Still, we didn't fold our hand and resign ourselves to a loss. Bobvuc hit a decent header the sprayed just wide left off a corner and Ben S. caught a bad deflection on excellent scoring opportunites.

A tie would have put us in the driver's seat; now we need to see what happens with the the rest of Stari Byke Red's season.

Cheers and lets enjoy the rest of the matches!
