back to DasMagic menuWrapUp from 06-29-2014
Well, nice to get back on track with a victory. Seems like my 'bitch' email helped a bit, the teams was filled out.
The team didn't have much working for them other than a player or two in the middle and up front. As a matter of fact, their striker hit a tremendous volly with his left foot going away from the net on a bad angle, not unlike Cahill's spectacular goal in the group stage of the World Cup. This was from an even tougher angle, but, the pass was shorter. If he was on Das Magic, he definitely would have won the 'Boot' for the week; enough about him...
They guy that did take home the Boot this week was Trent as goal keeper. Trent has been showing some stuff in net this year with two appearances as the final defender. He gets in good position and makes some excellent saves. Although we were a much better team, the score got tight in the final fifteen minutes and Trent brought home the 'W'.
We started in the hole 1-0 on the shot above, but, we pressed and moved the ball well. Not long before a give go from top of the box turned into a goal for Paulie on a nice shot that beat the keeper far corner. We took a 1-1 tie into the half. About midway through the second half Ryan controlled a ball at the top of the box and swung his left foot like a pendulum for a shot with eyes for the lower right corner of the goal. Not long after, an intercepted cross sent a header down the right side to Josh. A one touch pass inside to Paulie who buried the third goal.
A late deflected ball led to a 3-2 final. Nice job back there Trent!
