WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS!!

WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS OF THE W… well at least of the tri-county Berks/Lanc./York over 30s soccer league! πŸ˜‰

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. πŸ˜‰

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.

Final is Today!

Hmm.. I’ve been slacking with my blog lately….

Anyway, today is the final for Lan/Berks/York Counties. We’ll be playing at our home field which is also our opponent’s (Evergreen) home field too. This is the same scenario as last year. Hopefully the ending will have the same scenario as well. πŸ˜‰ A Berks United win!

Outdoor Soccer

I thought I wasn’t going to be playing Saturday outdoor soccer this spring, because I couldn’t get a hold of the guy that organized it in the fall. Finally someone called me last Tuesday. It turns out the guy is back in Morocco for a while.
We had our first game yesterday. We one 2-1! In the first half the ref award a penalty shot from a deflection of my hand as it was at my side. There was no way it should have been a PK. But, in the second half it was 2-1 already and I was chasing down a long ball towards the goal when a guy from the other team hit me with his should from behind because I got in between him and the ball. I then clearly handled the ball. It should have at least been called as a hand ball, and maybe another PK. But the ref didn’t see it. πŸ™‚ So, it was a payback for the one in the first half. The other player was really mad, but what are you going to do? I certainly wasn’t going to tell the ref it was a handball!

Next week we play Ephrata! I would love to win that game…
