Bad Game, Bad Ref....4-3 loss
Even with the grass cut on Saturday, both teams were having trouble adjusting to the lushness of the turf. Das was having problems putting more than two passes together while the Assyrians couldn't get a ball in the net after multiple blown offside calls and some defensive mistakes. Finally, they ran through the defense and scored a decent goal. This sparked something, because, not ten minutes later. Jimmy ran toward the right corner and then found Paulie alone at the twenty-two. After a well-trapped ball set up his shot, the decisive finish tied the game a 1-1 going into half.
We played a bit better in the second half and actually connect a few passes. 'The Difference' pushed the ball up the left side past two or three defenders and pushed toward the goal into the box. He was pulled down and Jimmy put away the penalty kick. 2-1 lead for Das.
A miscommunication led to a 2-2 tie. A missed call then a bad call make it 4-2 with Das trailing. A second yellow for Bob, then for Tommy Agua left us playing two men down. Tommy V 'stepped' out to assist on Johnny M.'s goal to close the gap to 4-3. Three or four opportunities more gave us a fighting chance, but, we couldn't find the back of the net before we ran out of time.
