The first game of the night featured Bluesteel taking on North Buffalo FC (NBFC). Bluesteel’s Lukas S. started the scoring on by cutting in and putting the ball on the goalie’s far side to make it 1-0. That’s where the half ended, 1-0 Bluesteel. Ugo S., also of Bluesteel, scored with 15:31 left in the second half to extend his team’s lead to 2-0. With 11:22 left, Arman D., defender for Bluesteel scored his team’s third goal on a free kick from downtown (like actually downtown Buffalo that’s how far it was scored from). It is this week’s Goal of the Week. Oliver S., North Buffalo FC’s put his team on the board with 9:21 left in the game. Final Score: NB 1 Bluesteel 3

The second game pitted Manchesthair United (MU) and Celtic. Tom C., forward for Celtic scored with 22:19 left in the first half to make it 1-0. With 11:19 left in the first half, a player on the MU bench was red carded. Because it was a bench red, MU was still allowed to play with 6 players and a goalie. Brandon V., of Celtic, scored with 5:34 left. That was all the scoring in the first half, 2-0 Celtic. Austin M., of Celtic, added the game’s only goal in the second half to make it 3-0. Final Score 3-0 in favor of Celtic. This week’s Goalie(s) of the Week go to Chris C. and Niko K. of MU for their first and second half efforts respectively. They stepped in net on a last minute notice and held Celtic three goals.

Recaps

The night started with Celtic vs North Buffalo FC. Both play in the Buffalo District Soccer League, a.k.a. BDSL, when they’re not playing in a league at Epic. North Buffalo FC forward Ryan P. started off of the game by putting in a header with 17:48 left in the first half. Brandon V., forward for Celtic and current joint goals leader, then stole two goal kicks in rapid succession to score two goals (with 15:27 and 14:46 left respectively) and put his team ahead. The rest of the first half was very competitive, but scoreless. Celtic had a 2-1 advantage at halftime.

The second half was just as competitive as the first. The only scoring came from Brandon V. with 8:50 on a through ball that didn’t come from a foot, it came from a hand. Ed F., Celtic goalie, threw the ball so far and accurately that it was as if Brandon V. was put through on net by a pass from one of his fellow attacker. The final score was 3-1 in favor of Celtic. The Player of the Week is once again Brandon V. of Celtic; he was responsible for all of his team’s goals in addition to being tied for the league lead in goals.

The next game had Rag Tag FC playing Manchesthair United (MU). The scoring started off with Erik H. scoring an absolute rocket of a shot from just over the halfway line to put his team up 1-0. It is this week’s Goal of the Week. Elia K., of Manchesthair United, retaliated with two goals, with 18:27 left and 15:45 left, to put MU on the board and give his team the lead. Much like the first game of the night, the rest of the first half featured these two teams in a gridlock. Ostap O., of MU, broke the gridlock by scoring with 2:22 left to give his team a 3-1 lead, which they took into halftime.

Jeffery M., of Rag Tag FC, started the second half scoring quickly with a goal just 2:50 into the second half to cut his team’s deficit to one. Manchesthair United forward Justin L., sporting a vintage Ryan Giggs jersey, scored a goal with 13:42 left in the second half. Rag Tag FC’s Josh M. responded with his first of the game exactly six minutes later to make it 4-3. Fernando V., of Rag Tag FC, scored the tying goal with 4:13 left. Unfortunately, no team was able to get a goal after 4:12 of very intense soccer so the game ended in a 4-4 draw.

The last game of the night featured first place GPS taking on third place Bluesteel. Lloyd M., forward for GPS and tied for the league lead in goals, started the scoring by capitalizing on a defensive breakdown with 21:23 left in the first half. Bluesteel’s Sean D. then tied the game up when he scored with 18:51 left. Ito F. gave GPS the lead with a goal with 10:03 left in the first half. From there on it was smoothing sailing for GPS. Francesco C., Daniel M., and Brandon B., all scored for GPS before the half concluded. The second half started with a Brandon B. goal with 20:31 left. GPS’s Fabio (no last name) scored with 9:41 left in the second half to make it 6-1.

Bluesteel then went on all-out attack trying to get back in this game but were denied by some great saves by Andrew S.. GPS’s Edward F. capitalized on the lack of defenders back and scored with 7-1 left. Brandon B., of GPS, then stole the kickoff pass and took it the letch of the field to score the team’s eigth goal. The night then ended just like it started, with a Lloyd M. goal to make it 9-1. That’s where it ended, 9-1 in favor of GPS. Andrew S. is this week’s Keeper of the Week for letting in only one goal, the least of any goalie that played on Tuesday night.

Recaps

Bluesteel squared up against Manchesthair United (MU) in the first game of the evening. H., forward for Bluesteel, started the scoring with 12:12 left in the first half by curling a low driven shot around the goalkeeper. Jake S., of Bluesteel, added another with 2:10 left in the first half. At halftime the score was 2-0.

MU came out of halftime hot, evidenced by Chris C.’s goal just four minutes into the game; 2-1 MU. Justin. L, of MU, added another goal to his team’s total shortly thereafter to make 2-2. After about 10 more minutes of MU dominance they were finally able to take the lead on a Jason K. goal that started from a free kick. However, Bluesteel were determined not to crumble, and got more offensive. Bluesteel’s efforts culminated in Lucas S., a forward for Bluesteel, soaring over a MU defender to score a header off of a corner kick. Lucas S.’s goal rescued a point in the standings for Bluesteel and is this week’s Goal of the Week. Final Score: Bluesteel 3 MU 3.

Celtic took on Rag Tag FC in the second game on Tuesday night. Rag Tag FC struck first with 12:31 left in the first half to make it 1-0 in their favor. Brandon V. then added two goals, with 9:12 and 7:42 left in the first half respectively, to give Celtic the 2-1 lead over Rag Tag FC. Dan, (no last initial given), of Celtic added another with 48 seconds left in the half to make it 3-1 Celtic going into halftime.

Rag Tag FC and Celtic started out the second half playing tightly contested soccer until 16:40 left in the second half when Rag Tag was awarded a penalty. The penalty kick was saved by Celtic goalie Ed F. Celtic then took it down the length of the field and added another goal to their tally, thanks to Kevin M.’s shot that got past the keeper. Brandon V. is this week’s Player of the Week for leading his team in scoring as well as scoring the game-winning goal. Final Score: Celtic 4 Rag Tag FC 1.

In the last game of the night Global Premier Soccer (GPS) faced North Buffalo FC (NBFC). NBFC was sporting fresh new blue kits as opposed to their usual black kits. Lloyd M., of GPS put in a header with 19:30 left in the first half to open up the scoring. Alex S. of NBFC responded with a goal that looked like it was shot out of a cannon to make it 1-1 with 14:02 left in the first half. Fabio (no last initial given), of GPS, swiftly replied with a goal of his own which gave GPS the lead once again. With 7:30 left, GPS was given a red card and had to play a man down for the rest of the game. The rest of the half was goaless so it was 2-1 at halftime with GPS ahead.

To start the second half Francesco C., of GPS, scored to give GPS a 3-1 lead on NBFC. Alex S., of NBFC, responded with a headed goal just 30 seconds later, to make it 3-2 GPS. Francesco C. clearly wasn’t thrilled about that goal, because he scored another for GPS only 21 seconds after NBFC had scored; 4-2 GPS. Fabio (no last initial given) then scored with 17:22 left in the second half to make it 5-2. Dave D., of NBFC, ended his team’s temporary scoring drought by scoring with 11:06 left to bring his team to within two. Francesco C. then scored by doing a scissor kick with 8:42 left in the second half to make the score 6-3. Edward F. sealed the deal for GPS when he scored his first of the game to make it 7-3 with 5:59 left in the game. Final Score GPS 7 NBFC 3. GPS’s short-handed victory was due in part to the great saves made by their goalkeeper Andy S., he’s this week’s Keeper of the Week.

Recaps

The 8 p.m. game attendees saw Bluesteel go up against Celtic. The first half ended 0-0, but by no means was it boring. Each team played physical and were tactically spot on, they just couldn’t find the back of the net. The start of second half played out just like the first half until Tom C., of Celtic, scored on a rocket shot to put his team up 1-0 with 19 mins left. Austin C., of Celtic, added a rocket goal of his own with 10 mins left, 2-0 Celtic. To top it all off Brandon V, forward for Celtic, stole a free kick and scored by putting the ball 5-hole on the Bluesteel goalie. Ed F., goalie for Celtic, is this week’s Goalie of the Week for making a couple great saves and being the only goalie to shutout their opposition on Tuesday night. Final Score: Celtic 3 Bluesteel 0

The 9 p.m. game featured Rag Tag FC and North Buffalo FC. The first half started by Rag Tag FC’s Josh M. scoring with 19 minutes to go in the half. North Buffalo FC’s Josh D. scored in retaliation just two minutes later. No more goals were scored in the first half so it was 1-1. The second half was much more attack heavy. Just seconds after kickoff North Buffalo FC’s Brian D. scored to make it 2-1. Two more goals were added on by the team from North Buffalo in quick succession shortly after making it 4-1. North Buffalo’s ability to play great through balls and make the correct runs helped them add another two goals to make it 6-1 with 3 minutes left. With 2:30 left Rag Tag FC won a penalty kick and scored. Frank H. (not me) is this week’s Player of the Week for having the composure and confidence to bury a penalty for Rag Tag FC. Final Score: North Buffalo FC 6 Rag Tag FC 2.

The last game of the night pitted Manchesthair United (MU), named after Manchester United up against Global Premier Soccer (GPS). GPS started the game with an onslaught of goals, four to be exact, in the first five minutes. MU was optimistic and weren’t going to hang their heads and die. Dave D., forward for MU scored this week’s Goal of the Week when he chipped GPS’s goalie when he was on standing on the goal line to make it 4-1 with 14:27 left in the first half. Oztap O., player for MU added another for his team to make it 4-2 with 8:51 left in the first half. GPS’s Ryan F. scored right before the buzzer sounded to make it 5-2 going into halftime. The second half started much more competitive than the first. Francesco C, of GPS, broke the half’s scoring drought by scoring his second of the game with 12:30 left. Charles M, also of GPS,  scored a goal with 8:27 left in the game to make it 8-2 GPS. MU once again showed great resilience and added another to goals to end the game. Final Score GPS 8 MU 4

Recaps

The first game of the night featured Bluesteel taking on North Buffalo FC. The first half started with a Bluesteel goal scored by the player known as H. Then exactly a minute later North Buffalo FC’s Dan P. scored. The half ended at 1-1. The teams both exchanged goals to start the second half; 2-2. Then with just over four minutes to go Mikhail P., winger for Bluesteel, received a pass from the halfway line, then took it around his defender and scored a great goal. Mikhail P.’s goal ended up being the goal that secured Bluesteel’s victory. It is this week’s Goal of the Week.

The second game of the night starred Celtic and Manchesthair United (ManU). The first half was very intense and tightly contested. Neither team was willing to let anything get through to the net showing their defensive chops. Celtic squeaked out a 2-0 lead at halftime over ManU thanks to goals from Brandon V. and Clement D.. The second half was just as tough, both teams weren’t willing to give any opportunities to the other. James K., forward for ManU, was able to power through the Celtic defense and bring his team to within one with 4:35 left in the game. ManU then decided to get more aggressive and send defenders to the net in effort to tie the game. Ed F., goalie for Celtic, made some phenomenal clutch saves to halt ManU’s attack. Ed F.’s saves in the dying seconds of the game clinched Celtic the victory and is this week’s Goalie of the Week.

The last game of the evening pitted Global Premier Soccer (GPS) against Rag Tag FC. Rag Tag FC’s Mark P. starred the scoring 15 minutes into the first half. GPS then responded with two quick goals of from Sean N. and Austin L.. Rag Tag FC’s defense held up well in the first half only allowing another goal from GPS’s Franco C. GPS had a 3-1 lead at halftime over Rag Tag FC. In the second half the floodgates opened for GPS. Seven different players scored a goal for GPS in th second half, including two from Lloyd M.. He is this week’s Player of the Week for scoring two goals which put him in first place for the most goals scored this season. The final score was Rag Tag FC 3 GPS 10.

Intro

Introducing Men’s Soccer Rundown. Every Wednesday expect an in depth recap of what happened in this week’s Tuesday Men’s Soccer games. You can also find next week’s schedule, the standings, and weekly awards. The weekly awards are Goalie of the Week, Goal of the Week, and Player of the Week.

This session the teams that are competing for the championship are: Bluesteel, Celtic, Global Premier Soccer (GPS), Manchesthair United (named after the English soccer giant Manchester United), North Buffalo FC, and Rag Tag FC.

Recaps

To kick off this session’s action, Manchesthair United (named after the English soccer giant Manchester United) took on North Buffalo FC. The teams drew at one a piece. Robert F., forward for Manchesthair United, put his team on the board with 14:36 left in the first half.

It was the only goal of the half. The second half was very defensive as each team’s backlines’ didn’t let many shots get on target. However, with just over two minutes left, a shot by North Buffalo FC’s Alexander S. was put on target and got past the goalkeeper. Alexander S.’s goal tied the game and was the last goal of the game. Alexander S. is this week’s Player of the Week for earning his team a point after having a rough game. Final Score: Manchestair United 1 North Buffalo FC 1

 The 9 p.m game featured Rag Tag FC and Bluesteel squaring off. The first half started by Tolani A., of Bluesteel, intercepting a goal kick and putting it in the back of the net to out his team up 1-0. Shortly thereafter he scored again, it was 2-0 Bluesteel with 15:13 left in the first half. Rag Tag’s own Erik H. answered with a goal of his own with 6:56 left in the half, but was quickly ccanceld out by Lukas S. goal for Bluesteel just a minute later. The second half was much closer than the first. It wasn’t until 18 minutes into the second half, that Bluesteel’s Jake S. put the nail in the coffin, by scoring this week’s Goal of the Week. Jake S. dribbled through three defenders on his way to scoring his team’s firth goal. Rag Tag FC not having any substitutes or their captain on the field really hurt them on Tuesday night. Final Score: Bluesteel 4 Rag Tag FC 1

The last game of the night saw Global Premier Soccer (GPS) and Celtic faceoff. It was easily the most intense and fastest game of the night. The first half was highlighted by Lloyd M.’s two goals with 13:23 and 9:45 left in the first half respectively. The teams also exchanged goals on the cusp of halftime to make it 3-1 in favor of GPS at halftime. After an uneventful beginning to the second half, Celtic’s Brandon V. scored with 11:10 left in the game. With about eight minutes left in the second half GPS goalie Bryan S. made two spectacular saves back to back. His great performance against the lethal Celtic attack and highlight worthy saves makes him this week’s Goalie of the Week. Two more GPS goals were scored by Austin S. and Ryan L. to cap off the night. Final score GPS 5 Celtic 2.

Recaps

Rover became champions by beating Off In The Woods, in convincing fashion, 11-3. Their win last night earned Rover their third overall title and capped off an undefeated season. The Players of the Week are Brendan A., Corben H., and Paul L., all of Rover, for each having a tremendous game offensively and leading their team to the championship. Beware of Off In The Woods. If they choose to participate in the next session, (which starts the of week of 9/11) their very skillful forwards and their very solid line of defense on paper is already pretty good. Now they’ll be seeking revenge for their loss in tonight’s championship and will surely be a force to be reckoned with.

In the first consolation game of the night, Eye of the Schweinstieger defeated Kroos Kontrol 7-2. It was a very tight first half that ended 2-1 in favor of Eye of the Schweinsteiger. The second half started with a 4-0 run by Eye of the Schweinsteiger and from there on it was smooth sailing for the team on their way to the victory. Kevin F., goalie for Eye of the Schweinsteiger, is this week’s Goalie of the Week for giving up the least amount of goals out of any goalie that played on Tuesday night.

In the last consolation game Egoboosters defeated Ball Busters by scoring six goals to Ball Busters’ three. James K., player for Egoboosters, scored the goal that put Egoboosters up 2-1 early in the first half and from there on Egoboosters did not surrender the lead for the remainder of the game, it’s this week’s Goal of the Week. It took them until the last week of the session, but Egoboosters’ victory in this game marked their first of the session.

Next Session

Next coed session starts the week of 9/11 and will be played on Thursdays. The registration deadline is 9/5.

Rocking Chairs channeled their inner Drake and went “Back to back like [they’re] Jordan ’96, ’97.” Rocking Chairs and successfully earned their second consecutive championship by defeating Triple B 10-3 on Monday night. Ashely F. led the way offensively scoring three goals for Rocking Chairs, she is the final Field Player of the Week of this session. Triple B’s loss was gut wrenching, but they had a great session. Three players finished in the top ten for total goals scored this session, and the team as a whole had the most goals of any team that participated this session.

Coming off their championship win, Rocking Chairs defeated Green Machine 12-3 in the first consolation game of the night. Rocking Chairs put on such a great display of textbook Field Hockey, there are simply too many great goals to pick on individual for this week’s Goal of the Week. They also shut out Green Machine in the first half. However, Green Machine went out swinging, they scored all three of their goals in the second half to the sound of very loud and enthusiastic cheers from their bench.

In the final game of the night, and of the session, See You Next Monday defeated Stick Hookers by a score 7-4. It was a very competitive first half of field hockey, the score was 1-1 going into halftime. In the second half, See You Next Monday exploded for six goals to Stick Hookers two. The scoring chances for each team were roughly equal in the second half, but it was Michele K., goalie for See You Next Monday, that made the difference. She’s this week’s Goalie of the Week.

 

Much thanks to James Krolikowski and Leanna Losardo for taking notes for me as I was unable to attend Monday night’s games. – Franklin
