It’s Hot Outside but Sizzlin’ inside SARC for Thursday Night ASSC 3s Basketball!!

Wherever you were last Thursday night, we bet it didn’t compare to what was going on at SARC for ASSC 3s basketball!! Let’s break it down and check the scores and action!


FSU had a rough night, unable to post a Dub-yah in the Win Column. They first took on CP3 and O and made a game of it early. Matching shot for shot for most of the game, they needed some key baskets late to keep pace. CP3 and O got hot with some nifty screens and outside shooting that proved to be the difference. Final score, FXU 15, CP3 and O 20. In their second game, FSU looked tired and winded, only able to post 9 points against Haters Gonna Hate’s 20. Ouch!


On the flip side, FMSP played 2 tough games and came out on top in both of them. They had their hands full with Poodles but managed a skinny 20-18 win. In their next game, The Real Ultimate Warriors also proved to be a worthy opponent with an awesome defense. In the end, however, FMSP held on for the 18-15 win. Nice!


Shots! Shots! Shots! needed more shots, shots, shots for any kind of win, win, win! They were only able to post 8 points against the always tough Haters Gonna Hate. They seemed to find their groove and made some nice 3s against CP3 and O but fell just short in the end, 17-20. Uh-oh!

In the night’s upset, the always tough Super Sloths couldn’t seem to get anything to work…..offense, defense, passing….you name it! They went up against The Real Ultimate Warriors, who only had 3 players show up for the entire night. They played hard and got hot early. In the surprising upset, they took down Super Sloths 20-6! Wow! Poodles were also able to take advantage of Super Sloths struggles and take a close one, 20-16. Tough night for the Sloths!

After the games, Toss Pizzeria was the place to be if you were wearing an ASSC jersey! Kickball and BBall players all showed up to throw back some brewskies and throw down some challenges for next week. We’ll see you then!!



ASSC’s 3s Basketball at SARC on Tuesday Nights…..Did You Catch It?

If you drove by SARC on Tuesday night and wondered what all the shouting, cheering and yelling was all about… was none other than ASSC 3s Basketball! Here’s how it all went down:


Wish I was a little bit Taller was doing just that on Tuesday night! They had 2 hard fought games for the night but came up just shy of posting a Dub-Yah. Drunk Dribblers took them out first with a 20-16 win. Then Air Ballers barely notched them on a last second shot that found the bottom of the net as time ran out. Air Ballers 19, Wish I was a little bit Taller 18! Ouch!

Shiner Blocks is known for their defense and now we know why! They held both their opponents of the night to single digit totals while their offense was a scoring machine! Air Ballers could only manage 8 points while Drunk Dribblers notched only 7! Wow!!

In their first game of the night, Dream Team had a little trouble finding open shots and couldn’t keep up with Summertime Squad to take the 13-20 loss. They caught their second wind in their next game against BoozeHounds and managed an awesome 20-9 win with some stellar defense! Nice comeback!

Speaking of BoozeHounds, their night did not get much better when they faced off with Summertime Squad in their second game. They only managed 5 points up against Summertime Squad’s 20! Double ouch!!

When I Dip You Dip We Dunk also had a night to forget! They only managed single digit totals in both their games going up against some tough opponents. WTF Ref put it to them hard and heavy, then OFFENSIVE FOWL made it another lopsided victory scoring 20 before time even ran out. There’s always next week Dip and Dunkers!

With both teams coming off impressive wins, WTF Ref went up against OFFENSIVE FOWL to see who could go unbeaten for the night. WTF Ref held on to a slim lead throughout the game and pulled out the 18-15 victory. Nice!

Speaking of blowouts, Not One, Not Two, Not Three… had a couple of their own for the night! Can you say steamrolled?! First up Net-Swishaz only managed 8 points in their first game of the night while The Wampus Cats only managed 9! Now that is a defensive slaughter by Not One, Not Two, Not Three…!

Finally, Be Humble was also able to notch a couple of wins for the night, first going up against The Wampus Cats. They had just come off a humbling loss and had something to prove. Although they improved from their first game, The Wampus Cats still only managed 15 points to Be Humble’s 20. Next up, Net-Swishaz held on as long as they could before Be Humble took home the 20-15 victory. Great night Be Humble!!

After the games, it was off to Toss Pizzeria for some hot food and cold brews! With the season in full swing, it’s anybody’s race to the Championship!

New Season, New Teams, New Challengers……Same ASSC Soccer 8s Excitement!

Welcome new Footballers to ASSC Thursday Soccer 8s at SEMP! New jerseys, new team names, new players …… same great league, same great vibe and same great camaraderie! Let’s take a look at how it all played out on the first Thursday night of the season:

In The Corner Kickin It started the season strong with a dominating game against About To Get Messi. They scored right away as the first half got under way. They showed their strong defense right off the bat allowing zero goals for About To Get Messi in the first half. Second half, In The Corner Kickin It showed no mercy and continued to pile up the goals. When the dust settled, they took the 7-0 victory with ease! Wow!

Next up, Spread The Cheeky took on Chicken Noodle Soup in a battle of defenses. Both teams held tight throughout the first half but started to gel a bit more in the second. Chick Noodle Soup scored first off a nice cross to the middle. SCORE!! They followed that up with a nifty header off a corner kick. SCORE!! Finally, they got busy in a fury in front of the net and managed to squeeze another one in the corner. SCORE!! Spread The Cheeky never gave up and managed to score a nice one late in the game but…..too little…..too late. Final score, 3-1 for The Soup!

Final game of the night, Gateway to the Weekend went up against Happy Hour Heroes. First half was neck and neck with Gateway to the Weekend taking the lead by a couple of goals right off the bat. Shortly before the half, however, Happy Hour Heroes had a really nice streak scoring two goals in the last 3 minutes to tie it up going into the half. Second half just 3 minutes in, Happy Hour Heroes made an amazing female goal, giving them the lead for the first time all game….. 5-3. Gateway to the Weekend pushed hard the rest of the game but only scored 1 more male goal making the final score 5-4, Happy Hour Heroes. What a game!!!

After the opener, it was Happy Hour time at Craftsman to welcome the new teams and throw down some new challenges for the new season. With lots of Bud Lights on hand and players looking to quench their thirst, Craftsman was the place to be. See you all again next week!

Tuesday Night Soccer 8s at SEMP …. Some Close Games …. Some Not So Close Games!

Who was pitchin’ fits on the football pitch at SEMP Tuesday night? Let’s list it out to see who came out on top in ASSC’s Soccer 8s League!

Dances with Wolves had no chance against Centaur Forwards. It was a pounding, to say the least with Centaur Forwards taking the 12-2 win. We had headers, corner kicks and breakaways from chicks and dudes……everyone was scoring from everywhere!

Sports Brahs also had a strong showing against That Escalated Quickly with an easy 7-2 victory.

In a much closer game, Stonecutters faced Small Hands Big Kicks where goals for either team were hard to find. The game was scoreless until late in the game when Stonecutters managed to sneak one in to take the 1-0 win. Nice!

Dominators definitely lived up to their name, smothering Muells Old Boys & Girls 10-4! Yikes!

Next up, Feets of Strength won a close one against The Shins. Both teams scored early in the first half and took a 1-1 tie into the half. It wasn’t until late in the second half that The Shins had some nifty passing that resulted in the game winner. Final score, 2-1 for Feets of Strength!

Cheery Red Tomatoes had another strong night, taking on Fire Emoji on field 2. The Tomatoes scored early and often with a strong defense that held Fire Emoji to only one goal for the night. In the end, Cheery Red Tomatoes 6 and Fire Emoji 1.

Over on Field 4, Money Shots vs Droo’s Kids. This was a very even match up with both teams bringing in winning records. First half Money Shots had the money and the shot, scoring a female goal in the first 7 mins. Half time saw Money Shots ahead 2-0. Second half Droo’s Kids got a lucky break and had a penalty kick with just 6 mins left. They wisely chose a female to take the shot and she drilled in the tying score! Final score, 2-2 tie! Nicely done!

In another great game, Bayer Neverlusen vs Gooooaaaallll. First half Gooooaaaallllkept most of the pressure on only giving Bayer a couple of chances on goal. Gooooaaaallll, however, was able to sneak one in just before the half. Second half things heated up with Bayer tying the game up right away and starting to control the game. Once tied up, Gooooaaaallll started pressing again and scored another goal with 10 minutes remaining, taking back the lead. Bayer followed right behind, tying it back up with just 4 minutes later off a fast break. The game was tied up again, with only a few minutes left. Out of nowhere, Gooooaaaallll scores again to take the 3-2 win! Awesome!

After the games, everyone headed over to Craftsman for happy hour, enjoying hot food and cold libations. Let’s do it all again next week!

Give-N-Go….In-N-Out….Coast-To-Coast….Too Many Hyphens!

Looking for some stellar 3s basketball action on Thursday nights? Head on over to SARC and check it out!

First up, The real Ultimate Warriors vs CP3 and O. Good close game between these two teams as they went point for point, rebound for rebound. Tough game to play but easy to cheer for! Both teams played social ball throughout the whole game but there had to be a winner and a “non-winner.” When the final whistle blew, CP3 and O sank 20 points and The real Ultimate Warriors 18. Great game!!

FSU had an up and down kind of night. They were flying high with some timely baskets in their first game, taking the 20-14 win over FMSP. They had their hands full in their second game in a closely fought battle with Super Sloths. FSU came out tough in the beginning but couldn’t hold on in the end. Final score, Super Sloths 20 and FSU 16. Oops!

Shots! Shots! Shots! had a similar night with 2 tough games that could have gone either way. They first faced off against the always tough Super Sloths. They took the early lead and it looked like another win for Super Sloths. Shots! Shots! Shots! came roaring back with some nifty defense and their shots began to fall. In the end, Shots! Shots! Shots! 20-16! Speaking of close games, Shots! Shots! Shots! went up against another powerhouse in FMSP. Shot for shot, they went back and forth. FMSP led late and barely held on for a 20-17 win! Nice!!

Poodles played hard, ran hard and sweated hard to eek out a win and barely miss out on another. CP3 and O had some nifty screens and some nice female shots to get on the board quickly. They took the win, 20-14. Poodles came back with a nice 20-16 win over Haters gonna hate to even things out for the night.

The real Ultimate Warriors (LIGHT PINK) (A) 13 AT Haters gonna hate (ROYAL BLUE) (H) 20
The real Ultimate Warriors (LIGHT PINK) (A) 18 AT CP3 and O (MAROON) (H) 20

The real Ultimate Warriors also had frustrating night….unable to notch a Dub-yah for the night.  Against Haters gonna hate, they couldn’t seem to get much going and left a few baskets out on the court. In the end, they went down 13-20. They did seem to catch a second wind and gave CP3 and O all they could handle. CP3 and O had to make a last second desperation shot, that found the bottom of the net, to steal the win. Final tally, 20-18 in favor of CP3 and O.

What a great night for basketball and for socializing, since there was a huge crowd headed over to Toss Pizzeria to keep the party going. With ASSC basketball and kickball teams both showing up, we definitely represented. Another awesome night in the books and we can’t wait to do it all again next week.



ASSC 3s Basketball……It’s Hot Outside….but Hotter Inside….what tha…..?

The basketball courts were smokin’ hot for Tuesday ASSC 3s Basketball at SARC! You could fry an egg on the hardwoods with some awesome play from Austin’s favorite 3s basketball teams. Let’s see how it all went down:

Game of the night goes to Wish I was a little bit Taller taking on Dream Team. Wish I was a little bit Taller was obviously the better of the 2 teams but anything can happen on any given Tuesday! Each team seemed to match the other shot for shot the entire game. Dream Team was down by one with seconds ticking off the clock. A veteran chick launched up a shot and a prayer to possibly steal the win…. wait for it…..she sank it with time running out!! Dream Team 20 and Wish I was a little bit Taller 19! Wowee…what a game!!


Net-Swishaz had an interesting night with some awesome highlights and some not so awesome low-lights. Just off their amazing earlier win, Dream Team couldn’t quite keep up and fell 16-18 to Net-Swishaz. Great game! In their second game, they took on Wish I was a little bit Taller. They only managed 10 points to Taller’s 20. Ouch!

OFFENSIVE FOWL couldn’t seem to find their rhythm in either of their games. Although close early in the game, Not One, Not Two, Not Three ran away with the 20-13 win. Next up, Be Humble who held them to only 6 points made quick work of OFFENSIVE FOWL. Tough night for the birds!

Next up, BoozeHounds also had a rough night, notching up 2 loses for the evening. First, Be Humble took them to the cleaners 20-8. Not One, Not Two, Not Three….also held them to only 10 points while posting up 20 of their own. Double ouch!!


On the other side of the coin, Shiner Blocks was on a roll with 2 dominating wins. They held both their opponents to 8 points each!! Now that’s some stellar defense!! While When I Dip You Dip We Dunk were one of those teams, they came back strong in their second game against The Wampus Cats. They were able to take the win at 20-15! Nice comeback!

Drunk Dribblers looked pretty sober in both their games pulling out wins of 20-17 in each contest. They took the first win off WTF Ref then posted their second win of the night against Summertime Squad. Awesome night!

Finally, Air Ballers certainly lived up to their name with a couple of lopsided losses to show for it. They only managed to score 5 points against Summertime Squad then posted the same number of points against WTF Ref. They didn’t let their losses dampen their spirit, however and definitely showed up for the fun! Great sportsmanship!

Who says you have to be on the floor to have fun…..there were tons of spectators who show up to cheer on their team and enjoy the “spirit of the stands.”

That spirit followed everyone over to Toss Pizzeria for the post game revelry….good food…..great beverages and continued sportsmanship! That’s how we roll at ASSC! See you all again next week!



World Cup Championship Final in Austin……well…….sort of!


It may not be World Cup but it’s the next best thing……ASSC Soccer 8s Championships!

All the teams worked hard this season to get to this point, so let’s see who ended up hoisting the Championship Banner out at SEMP!

In the games leading up to the semi finals, Pitches Be Crazy took on the heavy hitters from Happy Hour Heroes. Pitches Be Crazy must have already had their mind on the happy hour after the game instead of the one they were facing on the field! Happy Hour Heroes posted 6 goals to none for Pitches Be Crazy! That’s Cray-Cray!

In a much tighter battle, The Amigos went up against The Butt Kickers in a closely contested match. Both teams exchanged goals through the entire game. Lots of tight defenses and nifty shooting from both sides but, when the final whistle blew, they were still knotted in a tie. Game ends, 3-3. Dang it!

In the first semi final game, the always powerful Dream Team played the unpredictable Spread The Cheeky. Dream Team tacked one on early to take the lead and hold it until half time. The second half started slow for both teams with not many shots on goal, but then Dream Team hit their stride. They scored a nice one in the corner of the net and made another one from a nice pass on a cross. Final score, 3-0 with Dream Team headed to the Finals!

In the other half of the draw, In The Corner Kicking took on Multiple Scoregasms. This was a super close game with Multiple Scorgasms getting their first goal with 10 minutes remaining in the half.  They nearly held off In The Corner Kicking except in the last minute when Corner Kicking got the perfect chance and scored, tying it up with 1 apiece going into the half. Second half had lots of back and forth but neither team could score forcing the ultimate……a shoot out to determine the winner!!

In the shoot out Multiple Scorgasms went first making their first three shots while In The Corner Kicking missed their third. Multiple Scorgasms then missed their fourth attempt and In The Corner Kicking made theirs, tying it back up going into the 5th and final kicks. OMG this is exciting!!! Multiple Scorgasms made theirs putting all the pressure on In The Corner Kicking. They had their Keeper take the final shot so it was Keeper vs Keeper! Multiple Scoregasms Keeper blocked it for an amazing win!! Wow!

So, the stage was set, Multiple Scorgasms vs Dream Team. Dream Team came out strong scoring in the first two minutes of the match. Multiple Scorgasms now down by one with the wind at their back, were able to score and take the 1-1 tie into the half.

In the final half, once again Dream Team came out attacking and scored a quick goal to take back the lead. Dream Team continued to press using the wind to their advantage but were unable to find the back of the net for another goal. Multiple Scorgasms, on the other hand, were battling hard and fought to tie it back up. As the clock ticked down, Dream Team was able to hold on for the 2-1 win and take the Championship Banner for the title!! Yaw-Hoo……what a great game!

What a great season and the teams wasted no time heading over to Craftsman for cold libations and warm vittles! Everyone had a great time hanging out eating tacos, playing corn hole and socializing and toasting to the season’s new Champs…..Dream Team! Come join us next time for another exciting season on the pitch with ASSC Soccer 8s!

What’s Hot in Texas in July? ASSC Soccer 8’s!

Looking for some excitement on Wednesday nights in Austin? Well, head north for some ASSC Soccer 8’s action at Northeast Metro Park! Let’s see how it all went down this last week:

Son of a Pitch took on the powerful team, TETZHU over on field 7. TETZHU took the early lead with some nifty passing and goal scoring. They took a nice three goal cushion into the first half with Son of a Pitch still trying to find their game. They did manage to score two quick goals to at least get on the board, but TETZHU added more of their own to take the 6-2 easy win.

No Hands! had a nice night racking up two dominant wins to keep their place high up on the leader board. They managed to blank out Win & Tonic 5-0 and also knocked out Back That Pass Up 3-0. Now that is some strong defense!! Nice!

Next up, Ballsagna vs Lets Get Messi. First half Let’s Get Messi came out strong scoring a goal in the first five mins. While Ballsagna got off to a slow start scoring their first goal to tie up the game just before the half. Second half, Ballsagna was the team to start out strong, scoring two goals in the first three minutes of the half, giving them the lead for the first time. But Let’s Get Messi was not about to let the game get away and scored two goals of their own to tie up the game again! With just minutes left, Ballsagna scores again, making the final score 4-3! Wow….what a game!

Beercelona took on the fierce Drunk Flamingos in an epic game of back and forth. Once again, the winning shot fell just before the final whistle blew, giving Drunk Flamingos the 3-2 win! Whew!

In the final game of the night, Beercelona went up against Juanito & The Marimba Orquestra to see who would be the last team standing. Beercelona had just finished playing a tough game while Juanita was missing a girl and had to play down. First half was scoreless with lots of back and forth play. Second half still scoreless until late in the game when both teams punched one in, not more than 1 minute apart! Game ends in 1-1 tie!  Just goes to show, you never know what’s going to happen in ASSC soccer sometimes until the last seconds of the game!

As always, teams headed over to Little Woodrow’s Tech Ridge for some hot food and cool brews to size each other up, off the field. With the playoffs just around the corner, we’ll see who will be the leaders and who will be the followers. Come join us next week for more awesome soccer up north!



Who’s Bringing The Heat?! Mother Nature Is!

Ewww Weee…’s hot outside! The weather and the pitch are both burnin’ up and here’s how it all went down on the first night of the summer ASSC Soccer 8s season at SEMP:

Centaur Forwards couldn’t seem to get much going as they struggled a bit on both offense and defense. It didn’t help when Droo’s Kids looked like they were already in mid season form. They showed some nifty passing and were able to finish out some nice attempts on goal to take the win, 4-0 to start the season. Nicely done!

Next up, Sports Brahs took on Feets of Strength in a closely fought battle that was anybody’s game. Half time showed no goals by either team, but a couple of nice attempts that barely missed the back of the net. Feets of Strength scored right off the bat in the second half and saved one more for the final minute of the game, taking the win, 2-0.

The new indie team, Cheery Red Tomatoes was having a blast and enjoying their inaugural game in the new league. They took on Small Hands Big Kicks in an exciting opener with both teams getting to know each other again and gelling as a team.   In the end, Small Hands took the win 4-1 but we can’t wait to see what Cheery Red Tomatoes shows us next week!

Money Shots clobbered Dances with Wolves 8-0! It’s an understatement to say all their shots were money but, they made goals from the left side….the right side….and right down the middle! They had not missed a step since last season so they are a team to be reckoned with this season!

The Shins went up against another new team to the league, That Escalated Quickly. The Shins have been around for awhile and it showed with some nifty passing and solid defense to take the win, 5-1. Nice!

In more action, Stone cutters took on Fire Emoji in a crazy game of goal after goal after goal! Unfortunately for Stonecutters, the goals all came from Fire Emoji! Their defense stole more balls than an equipment intern for the MLS league! Steals equaled goals with Fire Emoji taking the easy win 10-0! Ouch!

Bayer Neverlusen was crushing Muells Old Boys & Girls but still found the time to be social by having some fun along the way.  Bayer Neverlusen was heavy on sportsmanship and heavy on the goals taking the 5-1 victory for the night! Great camaraderie!

Finally, the best game of the night was GOOOOAAAALLLLL vs Dominators. First half GOOOOAAAALLLLL dominated scoring one male goal and one female goal putting them up 3-0 at half time. Second half Dominators took control and scored a male goal and a female goal in the first 5 minutes, tying up the game at 3 apiece. The rest of the game went back and forth with both teams getting some great chances but neither team able to break it open. Game ended in a 3-3 tie! We hate ties!!

After the games, everyone headed over to Craftsman to welcome the new players and catch up with the old ones. There were lots of brewskies thrown down as well as challenges for next week. Come see what all the excitement is about next Tuesday night at SEMP for ASSC soccer!

ASSC 3’s Basketball Getting Tighter on Thursday Nights at SEMP!

Thursday night basketball at SEMP is getting tighter and tighter with so many teams so evenly matched. Let’s take a closer look at these games as teams start to gel:


Shots! Shots! Shots! scored some baskets, baskets, baskets….unfortunately, their first opponent scored more baskets, baskets, baskets! The Real Ultimate Warriors led for most of the game and added a couple of late female goals for icing on the proverbial cake. They took the 20-15 win. Shots! Shots! Shots! was just getting warmed up though. They were caught in a hard fought battle with Poodles and trading baskets for most of the game. They had a one point lead going into the final seconds of the game and managed some stingy defense to take the 20-19 win. Awesome!

Speaking of close games, FSU won a squeaker against Poodles, who was just coming off a heartbreaking loss. Again, both teams had timely shots and key steals to keep it close. In the end, FSU took the 20-17 win. Nice! In their second game, however, FSU looked winded and couldn’t seem to get on the board. The Real Ultimate Warriors scored early and often and made quick work against FSU for the 20-10 win.

FMSP had an interesting….and confusing night! In their first game, they creamed CP3 and O 20-8, then were dumbfounded when they could barely get on the board against Haters gonna hate. FMSP scored first and looked like they brought their momentum in from their first game to run away with their second. Haters gonna hate got hot with their shooting and some timely female shots that started racking up the points. In the end, Haters gonna hate 20, FMSP 9! Ouch!

Finally, Super Sloths game out of the gate strong for their first game then hit a wall in their second. Haters gonna hate was just coming off of an awesome game and were just getting warmed up. This was a great game with lots of possession changes and 3 pointers from outside bombs! Guys….girls….benches….everyone was scoring! Haters gonna hate had a chance to tie it up at the buzzer but the shot fell short. Score at buzzer: Super Sloths 20, Haters gonna hate 18! Fantastic game!! In their next game, Super Sloths couldn’t seem to keep their momentum going late. CP3 and O had an earlier defeat so were looking for redemption and managed to stay a couple of points ahead the entire game. In the end, CP3 and O 20, Super Sloths 15.

As always, Toss Pizzeria was the place to be for hot food and cold brews after the games! With the teams coming together mid season, it’s anybody’s guess who will come out on top for the Championship. Let’s do it all again next week!
