WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS OF THE W… well at least of the tri-county Berks/Lanc./York over 30s soccer league! 😉
We (Berks United) the defending champions from ’06 had an explosive win yesterday, defeating Evergreen 8-2. The first 10 minutes Evergreen was really pounding us and managed to score the first goal. Which just proved to make us angry and solidify the team. We then went on to score 7 unanswered goals. I even had an assist, although kind of unintentional. I was playing my usual position at sweeper. (Last defender before the goalie, for those that might not know.) Things were getting a bit sloppy and Evergreen crossed the ball into the middle, so I stepped up and cleared the ball so we could reset and get reorganized. Evergreen was pushed up so far that the ball drifted over their last defender and one of our players out ran him to the ball and slotted it passed the keeper for a goal. Wasn’t really what I planned, but hey.. a goal is a goal. And in this case an assist is an assist. 😉
After the game both teams went the Evergreen German Club to celebrate and/or wash the memory of the game away. That’s one of the great things; being able to go out and play a hard game and then share a pitcher of beer afterwards.
