JDF-48 Crushes Centaurs-48, 8-1
November 18, 2018, 4:00pm, Finlayson Turf

Only for the first ten minutes did we look disorganized in this game. Under the late afternoon setting sun, it took a few minutes for our team to warm up and gain our bearings on the extra wide field that is Finlayson Turf. But once we settled in, the passing began to become more fluid and the goals began to drop. We scored three quick ones with Ric putting away two nicely placed shots and Dwight coming up strong for a header off a corner kick that bounced off the turf and then lobbed in over the defender and off the post for his second goal of the season. Dwight gets honourable mention for being the 5th leading scorer, a stat that he is keeping close tabs on. In the first half, Joel also finally scored a header goal with a nice cross by Dave O. 4-0 at the half. Second half went quite a while with no goals, but our fitness wore them down, and Paulo began his dancing around the defense and put in two nice goals the he placed neatly by the goalie, one to each side. Joel scored a second after cracking one at the goalie that he blocked, but not enough, and Ric topped off the evening with a third goal for his third hat trick of the season. As usual, our defense was solid and only fell asleep once to watch their one speedy forward carry the ball all the way from half field into the goal area for their lone goal. Thanks to solid play and support from Kim and Tommy from 55s. Good play, boys! Final 8-1.
