Who knew that a lonely call on Yahoo! message board from Lyonya G. could draw an “11-people response”. And we did it – we had a wonderful game.
People from Soviet Union, Barbados and Albania met in a friendly soccer game near Boston, but just a short 20 years ago both Communist governments were strongly opposed to such meeting on a capitalist grounds.
We played from 17:39 to 18:30 – almost an hour. All the time DARKs were down by one player. And the game was a constant pursuit. WHITEs build a comfortable 4 point lead 6:2 (18:15). Marat placed an extra effort to pass and even scored 2 goals.
DARKs tried to bring it back. From 6:2 they rose to 6:5, almost making it.
And today there is a 100% chance of rain. So it was a great call to play yesterday – Thank you!
