Ahhhh, another tough week. What to say, how many ways can you report a loss. Maybe I should call one of the Chicago baseball reporters.....
This week, we came up against a decent polish squad with a solid keeper and two quick forwards that were very good at give-going through our defense.
Before we caught our breath, our defense given up three goals and things were not looking very good. We got one back before half and took a 4-1 deficit into the *locker room*. With some coaching advice from Eddy switching the defense to a flatback four to slow up the give-goes and the hot weather slowing down the opposition with no subs, we made the usually 'Das-Comeback'. We got a goal on a successfully converted penalty and another on a dipsy-doo and strong finish by Alex closed the gap to 4-3.
With only about fifteen minutes to go, we manufactured four or five solid chances to tie the match the just wouldn't go in. Unfortunatly, a blocked clearance was stopped and quickly shot to finally put the match out of reach for a 5-3 finish!
