By the time Sh. scored his first goal at 09:47 both teams already had plenty of moments and mistakes. Moreover, game moved from small field with small goals to a very large field with medium-size goals. Game started around 09:25 due to diligent and decisive organizational measures of Vlad U. Both teams grew (from late arrivals) by accepting fair pairs: Stas M. and Roma, Grisha Rom. and Misha P., Josh and Misha Y. Who was the pair for Misha Tax? Vadim L. was the pair! So, at least 8 people arrived late to the morning game. But, what is important, we all played together. No child left behind. Very good.
|Let’s say Alex Z. and Vlad U. were picking for WHITEs||Let’s say that Ruslan and Zhenia V. picked for DARKs|
|Game was very close. Both teams were ahead by one point several times in the course of the game|
|2014-09-13 SAT: Goal number 5 corrected – goal goes to Fred – pass from Ruslan|
09:55 – 1:1 – after a corner (who did it?) Ruslan hit the ball from a very sharp angle. Ball slowly hit the GK (Alex Z.), slowly bounced to the post and slowly barely crossed the line. Goal! For some nearby it look like ball crossed the line completely.
10:18 – 2:1 – Vlad R. scored into the utmost corner of the goals. Not strong, but very precise.
10:20 – 2:2 GK was moving away from the post to cover possible pass, but Yura D. hit and scored in the near corner. It was impossible to react. Very pretty goal! This goal was very painful for the GK. Not physically, but emotionally.
10:24 – 2:3 – As predicted, Misha Tax hit and scored. Powerful. Unstoppable. Convincing. Pass from Fred.
10:33 – 3:3 – Roma tricked Misha P. twice on the left and managed to give a calm and very high ball right by the goals. Alex Z. had to jump high to reach the ball and . . . header goal!
10:35 – 3:4 – Zhenia V. gave a calculated pass to Misha P. Misha as yesterday had time to react. Only this time hi hit the upper post. But Stas M. was right there and Josh (GK) already could not save the situation – too close to the goals.
10:42 – 4:4 – Josh scored a low long one after passes from Boris Sh. to Vadim and to Josh.
10:50 – 5:4 – Boris Sh. did not wait after a pass from Alex Z. Hit hit the ball immediately, and ball goes slowly into the corner. Boris Sh. did not like this goal for some reason? This is his goal number two.
10:52 – 5:5 – Vlad U. left after this goal in frustration. Ruslan scores in a near post with light tough after a series multiple mistakes and mishaps. Now WHITEs are down and crisis is looming on the horizon
10:54 – 5:6 – one defender was missing, and Ilya B. received a clever pass from Zhenia V. Ilya B. scores and WHITEs are in trouble now. The only way out is the way forward.
10:57 – 6:6 – Alex Grt – long distance curved shot in the far upper corner of the frame – good looking goal!
11:05 – 7:6 – Boris Sh. did it again. This is third and very needed goal!
11:08 – 8:6 – Grisha Rom. – it looked like every offender had a chance to score, but final honor goes to Grisha Rom. Ball was almost there several times, but it just did not want to go in. It had to be forced into the net.
