Not a whole lot to report in this game, though it was a well-fought and evenly matched game throughout.  We could have gone ahead early with an easy tap-in from Mirek, who instead looked up to celebrate and forgot to tap it in.  He made it up later with nearly exactly the same play and no mistake on the second try.  After they tied us early in the second half, we scored on a PK that Tommy took after their goalie grabbed Paulo by the shirt and dragged him to a stop.  Player of the match definitely went to Kim, who played in net for the 55s and frustrated Lakehill's speedy attacks and shots by stopping attempts that everyone thought were going in.  The most intense point of the game came as Lakehill was pummeling us in a last ditch effort to tie the game and was granted a free kick just outside of the area.  The shot was well taken, low and around the right side of the wall, but Kim dove and punched the ball wide.  He also stared down their penalty shooter (after a weak call was made for scrapping before a free kick), and intimidated him into taking the penalty shot high and over the cross bar.  A nice match that resulted with a JDF-55 victory.  Good play, boys!
