JDF-40 Demoralizes Saanich Internationals 5-1

JDF-40 Demoralizes Saanich Internationals 5-1 October 25, 2017 7:30 PM Royal Bay 1st Half Saanich Internationals Goal #1: happened in the first minutes when Dave —coming back for his first game after a long layoff from a knee injury—was caught off guard on a cross that became a shot from 35 yards out on the sideline, sailing right over his head, just out of his rather paltry, almost gimpy, reach—as described by Rosco , who is well know for his Johnnie Walker wisdom and beer-induced bravery that makes him play hard in an “ against all odds. It's the chance I've got to take ” style (Phil Collins, circa 1984).   JDF Goal #1: Ingo the great and terrible. Assisted by: Adam deflection off of Dan’s shot, from a corner kick. JDF Goal #2: Sean marvellously beat one defender, sped through others and shot right through the keepers right hand. Assisted by: Ryan . After a sprint to the corner, Brandon beat the defender to the ball and passed it back into

JDF-40 Crushes Bays United 6-1 October 21, 2017 4:30 PM Oak Bay High School 1st Half JDF Goal #1: Adam . Assisted by: Joel , whose attempt to pass became a shot on net that trickled through the keepers hands to be finished by Adam .   JDF Goal #2: Ryan , who dribbled from midfield straight through most of the team to score.   Assisted by: Rosco (why not?) 2nd Half JDF Goal #3: Rob , penalty shot. Assisted by: Brandon who earned a penalty after going down from a shirt pull and kick to the leg. JDF Goal #4: Brandon dribbled past the defender to the goal line and finished low and hard across the keeper to the right. Rosco was well positioned in support and waiting to pop the ball in the net should the pass or rebound arrive, neither of which were required.   Assisted by: Name ?. JDF Goal #5:   Joel who finished with an absolute textbook cracker of a shot (maybe his best in years) off the rebound from the keeper.   Assisted by: Brandon wh

JDF-40 Routs Zgoda 6-0

JDF-40 Routs Zgoda 6-0 October 11, 2017 7:30 PM Royal Bay 1st Half Zgoda passed well during the first 15 minutes, and showed some real talent in the buildup, but had no finishing power or speed up front, and eventually got tired and sloppy, which persisted for the remainder of the match. JDF Goal #1: Dan , who patiently placed the ball low and hard inside the left post.   Assisted by: Ryan Rosco gifted Zgoda’s striker with an errant back pass, but luckily he was as unprepared as Rosco was red-faced, so he missed the point blank shot.   2nd Half JDF stepped up their passing and pressing play, which was mostly in the other half of the field where Zgoda cowered under wave after wave of attack. JDF Goal #2: Sean Assisted by: Adam From Brandon’s right cross, starting from Jorge’s play out to the wing JDF Goal #3: Ingo’s header Assisted by: Angus’ corner kick JDF Goal #4: Adam placed it far left corner Assisted by: Jason   Rosco

JDF-40 Pummels Prospect Lake 2-1

JDF-40 Pummels Prospect Lake 2-1 October 10, 2017 7:30 PM JDF Field #2 Although JDF didn’t play pretty, by the light of a nearly full moon—the waxing gibbous—they waned not so much to loose while they laboured hard enough to win. 1st Half Rafael hit the cross bar with a surprise shot off the outside of his right foot, which was tipped over by the Prospect keeper, Darcy.   Brandon , who subbed on at 20 minutes, got warned almost immediately by the ref for dropping a shoulder to protect himself from a clumsy player who stepped into his path; this   after he brushed off the first player to take the ball and press fast down the wing.   JDF Goal #1: Pete. Assisted by: Brandon . The play that started from Gord to Rob . The ref said that if not for the quick goal after playing advantage, he would have awarded a penalty for the foul on Brandon —who gave a pass and earned an assist before being sliced down in the box—but alas, Pete hit the back of the

JDF Goal #3: Ingo Assisted by: Rosco “P Coltrane” of the indirect free kick. JDF Goal #4: Paulo , who dribbled on left side then magisterially placed the ball in the top right corner of the net. Assisted by: Jason. JDF Goal #5: Paulo , Direct free kick, left of centre of top of box, after asking Ref for no wall. After the goal, the keeper could be heard mumbling that he was in the middle of setting up his wall. LOL.
