Mamma Zu vs Morales 2-1 WIN!

We can come home with a win, 3 points, with a whole lot of drama. I thought we were going to loose that game. We were possessing the ball for most of the game. We were tied 0-0. Cosmin tried to score a second after their goalie nabbed the ball. It was loose and it was a fraction of a sec too late for Cosmin. It was a foul. The ref called it. Their goalie stood up and ranted some profanities and shoved Coz to the ground. Or that is how dramatic it seemed. Red card.
Well, we just could not score.
They found a way though. With 5 minutes left in the match, they put one over poor Celvin's head and into the goal. 1-0
All seemed lost.
But Eric had other plans. Fed perfectly by Kevin, Eric had a sure goal. A defender leveled Eric in the box. Penalty kick for Eric 1-1
2 minutes left.
They had a few runs at goal, but Ryan started a counter attack with a long ball to Eric and he sent us home with 3 points in the standings

We are alive and well in the hunt for moving up to 3rd. Div

Next up, final game. Sticky Rice

Cap Ale 5 Mamma Zu 2 LOSS

Loosing is never fun. It hurts. But we are not above loosing. We can beat every team in this league. A friend once told me over a game of pool, "I can miss every shot on the table". Those guys came out of the gates scoring. Hard to overcome a 4-0 deficit.

We did give them a run for their money. That is all I ask of you guys. Play until the whistle blows. A full 90 minutes is what we came for. Let's give them that 90 with effort. Never give up the ship. The other thing I will ask is to lose noblely. If we start sniping at eachother we will never get back in the game. Head down and get to it. And we did.

Some bad luck for us at the net and good saves by thier goalie and hard defense won this game for them.

Play positive my brethren.

Ok recap,

fast dudes can score. And thier one fast guy had 3.

I have never seen a ref take back a call. Glad it was one against me that he took back. I think the player obstructed me, sopped and I tried to get around him and he fell and tied up my legs. Glad he rethunk it.

Goals for us to keep us alive. Thanks to Eric for 1 goal and 1 assist. Kevin with a goal with an assist from Josh W we think. Anyone want to clear that up if it is wrong?

Champions lose with grace. But come back all the harder for the next team. I feel sorry for them.

Next up Morelos 1 pm next Sunday
