Ewww Weee…..it’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!
