A perfect summer night (in October) was a great setup for the game to start off the 2011 First Division playoff run. The pitch on 32nd/Central has really seen better days.
From the start Das really have the run of play and created several well developed opportunities including a few breakaways. Unfortunately, none were converted to goals. Fortunately, our quickness in the midfield and good decision making on defense virtually eliminated any chances for the opposition.
Late in the first half, a ball was pushed down the right endline and Paulie beat his defender endline then cut the ball back to Irish cutting in at the top penalty box. He hit a great one touch shot and buried a right-footer into the far side netting.
Das dominence continued into the second half...so did the lack of finishing. Finnaly, a run through by Mitch resulted in a penalty kick that Irish converted for his second and game winning goal. Prijedor had a contraversal goal with about twenty left to pull within one. A scary shot that Reed saved with an unbelievable diving 'paree' made the last ten minutes exciting.
Looking forward to the semi final game next Sunday against Brusfa
