This first game of the season on the new Das Magic Stadium grass field was in perfect conditions. The sun was shining the game time temperature was in the low 60s and best of all, at game time, Das Magic was sporting sixteen players!
We started well and moved the ball around nicely especially for a team that only had a single run outside four days prior with very few of the actual players at the practice. We welcomed a couple new Das members to the club with Andy Funkle coming from indoor practice as the lastest 'young guy' on the team ('sorry Chad/Paulie'). Andy didn't wait long to contribute in the great Das Magic tradition; he miss hit a cross that went in for his first goal with the club and our first of the 2012 season.
Although we created several opportunities through the first half, the lead stayed at 1-0 until just before the whistle when our other new Das player 'contributed' in his own way. A handball in the box resulted in a penalty kick goal to knot the score at 1-1.This score didn't last long into into the second half as we worked the ball down the right wing as Paulie beat his man along the touch line and crossed it to a waiting Virgis who tapped in a RIGHT-FOOTER to put us ahead for good with a 2-1 lead.
Paulie and Sean each scored in the second half for a 4-2 final to start the season on a positive note. Next week at Das Magic Stadium again with our favorite start time: 10am.
