Well, you probably already read the email rant regarding this match so you know the outcome. Here are a few quick details to add to the pain....
It was scheduled for a 10am game. At 9:59am Das Magic had Jimmy,Ian, Al Cassidy and Me (and Roman). Luckily, there wasn't a full contingent on the otherside and the Referee was lost trying to figure out which of the twenty fields we were to play on.
By game time, we had 9, including a recently recovering Erich who hasn't played ninety minutes in about eight years. I would say if you eliminate Ian, our average age was about 39.9.
Even with the odds stacked against us, fifteen minutes in, prospects didn't look too bad! We were moving the ball pretty well, the defense was standing up and the other team pretty much sucked. After two bad play by the defense put us in the hole, the comeback looked to be on the horizon with a penalty kick by Jimmy H to make it 2-1.
Alas, it was not to be. A combination of easily missed break aways and some incredibly unlucky bounces kept us off the sheet for the rest of the match. Shame on you who slept in, or, just didn't want to travel and caps off to everyone who played!
.....let's have 11 next game??!?!?
