Riding a sweet five game win streak was great. We beat some good teams and some not so good teams. After playing five games in three weeks, we thought a week off couldn't hurt. We were wrong. It seems that Das Magic does not like to play at Olympic Park. For our two games there in the last two seasons, it was a struggle to get a full squad. Even with the import of our Bosnian Nationals (newly minted Magicians). We only had one substitute. (none after half).
Besides the tight numbers, we couldn't put three passes together in the offensive The defense was holding together pretty well with Edo helping the defensive main- stays to plug up the middle. A couple of set plays gave us some good chances, but, we went down 1-0 with a pretty good shot from about twenty-two out that beat Reed to the low corner. A direct kick by Trent put the match on even terms. Moldova didn't have many chances, but, we weren't doing much on offense ourselves.
Another well-taken long shot late in the match upset the plan for at tie. Final tally, 2-1 not Das.
