Stari Byki was never much of a challenge. An absolutely beautiful morning for soccer promised an easy victory and a couple arm lifts post game
After getting a rare 1-0 lead on a through ball from Virgis to Paulie with a sweet, smooth finish, seemed like we would get what we expected. To make things even better, we had TJ standing up in the goal for the Magicians.
Things changed quickly. First a header off a corner kick tied it at 1-1. Before we could catch our breath, a couple of crazy good goals and one, not so good, made the score 4-1.
Never giving up, a penalty kick by Irish and a header by Virgis (his first ever) brought us within one goal with a 4-3 halftime score. Things were looking better going out for the second half. We had the momentum and the subs coming out for the second half.
We were pressing hard with Paulie and Ryan leading the way with several good efforts. A well timed run by Ryan off a dead ball was a sweet goal that would have evened the score at 4-4 was incorrectly called off by the ref. Two more fouls in the box could have easily been whistled penalty kicks. But, not of that was to be. A defensive breakdown on the far side made the score 5-3 and a very late unstoppable shot put us to bed.
