In the lead up to last Sunday's match, the numbers weren't adding up. Several guys had trips planned or coaching gigs. The confirmed number of players on Sunday morning was only eight. Happily, the numbers came up and we had a full squad at game time and some 'fans'
Das Magic magicians felt pretty strange turning onto 'Polo Drive' for the soccer match. The pitch was perfect and we came out ready to play. We knocked the ball around to the huge spaces open on both sides of the field. The goals came 'organically' and we did not force anything.
Alex started off the scoring when he finished from the five on an excellent cross from the right wing: 1-0. About ten minutes later, Chris Roe smacked a volly down toward the ground and bounced the ball past two defenders and the goalie: 2-0. The goals kept on coming when Paul H scored his first of the day on a through ball he corralled, beat a defender toward the endline and finished far left in the side netting: 3-0.
In the second half, we continue to move the ball around and score when the opportunities presented themselves. Off a tremendously stuck Irish volly, Paulie tracked the ball and headed it over a defender and past the keeper: 4-0. Irish got one of his own soon after for his sixth of the season and made the tally 5-1. Paul H wrapped up his hattrick and the scoring for the day with another well placed shot high and to the left of the goalie.
