So, we were playing Warta B, we needed the win and they were the team with the worse record in the league that was not forfeiting every match. At game time, they only had two players. There was no ref. At 10:30, they had six players, by 10:40, they had ten.
So, one week before Baraboo and, after the summer break, we are standing up against the undefeated, first-placed team, FC Moldova. We anticipated an excellent match, we were not disappointed....
We showed with a good group, the previous week's bitching brought out a selection of youngsters and Danny Cross from our 'auxiliary roster'
It was a hard-fought, back and forth match with good soccer on both sides of the ball. They went up 1-0 about ten minutes into the match with a breakaway that caught us off guard. Another goal about midway put us down 2-0. Regardless, Trent was holding his own in goal and kept us close. That was important as Jonathon hit a curving shot from the top of the box, just left of center. It passed the out-reached fingers of the goalie and finished in the upper ninety.
We were happy with the 2-1 scoreline after halftime and looking forward to evening up the match in the second half. With about twenty minutes to go, they took a 3-1 lead, but, we were not done. A cross from the left side by Chad hit Danny in stride on the right and he beat the goalie on the ground for a 3-2 score. Unfortunately, it would end that way. All in all, a pretty decent game against a formitable opponent.
