WEEKEND ROUND UP: YOU WIN SOME YOU LOSE SOME

Sorry for the late updates, but here is how the weekend went for FC Denver.

Green Team suffered their first lose of the season, falling 5-3 to Sefton FC.  Full game report to follow.

The White Team led by the Ninja Assasin, fell to a very good Rush team.

The premier team tied 3-3 against a solid Ex-Jesuits team.  In every game so far, the Premier team has improved but has yet to find their first win of the season.  The premier team out hustled and, for portions, out played their opponents who are a CASL powerhouse.  Dustin came up big with 2 assists.  Slipping the ball through for Chris early in the game to put us up 1-0.  We were down 2-1 in the last minute of the first half, when a well placed corner kick met the head (or shoulder) of stopper Matt Kasck to tie it up 2-2.  Dustin again showed his vision, when he played in JC to put us up 3-2.  We gave up a goal a few minutes later, but JC, active all day on the flank, saw our best chance in the dying minutes get deflected over the cross bar.  Newcomers Eddie and Marinko(SP??) made their debut for the Premier team.  Both made a great impact on the team.

Masters Team????? Word on the street is that the old fogies lost, but were short handed.

In the big news for the weekend our Two Women’s teams facing off head to head in the first ever Women’s Green v. White game. The game was a blast by all accounts. Our Green team had a dominant first half and the White team came back strong in the 2nd half to fall just short of the victorious Green team. They’ll play eachother again before the season ends, so we’ll all look forward to that.

QUICK FCD RECAP

FC DENVER WAS UNDEFEATED THIS WEEKEND!!!!!!!!!!!!

Masters won 2-1, Josh found the net from a nice little serve from Yagha and their new big guy Kevin drilled a header home on a free kick that was served up by Matt (or Geoff).

White team wins, 5-3. The Ninja Assassin gets his revenge!!!!!!!
Goals: Max (2), Roy (2), Alex; Assists: Roy, Phil (2), Todd
A dominent performance by the White midfield. Max gave their back line hell as the lone striker and Carlos and phil were monsters in the back line, shutting down their forwards for the entire game. None of their goals came from strikers.

Premier team tied, 3-3. Two goals from our captain Raph, and a third goal from Chris. We led twice in the match, but couldn’t hold on to the lead. The offense was really clicking and should have put a way at least 3 more goals. The team is now playing at the highest level and is beginning to realize that they can’t get away with lapses in concentration. The team is definitely progressing though, and should find its first win this coming weekend.

Green team won 4-1, against Guadalajara, pictures and full match report to come.
