First praise goes to the miss Weather. What a treat! Sunny and warm. And no bugs. Remember greatest Pushkin words comparing Summer and Autumn. Anyway – great work, Miss Weather.
Second praise goes to our wonderful people, who organized a fair team picking with 2 patriarchs: Yakov and Yura D. The only problem with this system remain – late-comers, who might upset a delicate balance, but this was a great start. Thank you!
Game developed exactly as yesterday. WHITEs opened with a solid lead 3:1 (09:55).
Very soon DARKs tied and jumped ahead on the scoreboard. Vova M. entered to replace Pawel K. Andreas and Vova M. scored 3 easy goals. It was now 3:4 for DARKs (10:10).
Luck switched back again. Grosha Rom. supplied 2 passes and scored a goal (6:5 by 10:26). And Zhenia V. surprised everyone with amazing long-distance shots on impossible trajectories (7:5 at 10:27).
DARKs tied again. Edik and Andreas scored to make it 7:7 (10:38).
Another quick exchange occurred. Alex Z. was blocking shots left and right. He was blocking intentionally and unintentionally. He used his legs and hands. But goal that occurred was the most humorous. Victor scored from the corner and Alex Z. let it by accident (8:8 at 10:44).
Last 2 goals were scored by Ziya and someone else, and game ended at 10:52.
