Vélez Survive Supernova

Posted by Miguel Nuila on Oct 18 2002 at 05:00PM PDT
On a wet and slick field, the Vélez boys worked their team magic moving the ball early and creating many scoring opportunities. Unfortunately, not enough of the early chances went in and Nova hung around at 1-0. Adjustments to their defense and a more direct style of play led to less opportunities for us and a lot more pressure on our flat four, which I am proud to say, never got caught flat or out of position. Nova tied off of a corner kick that dropped in the zone on a goal that my kids swear was never in the goal. Regardless, with a 1-1 tie and lots of direct play pressure, it became nerve wrecking. Nova had a chance to take the lead but the shot was just high hitting the post and bouncing over the crossbar. Boys settled down and began moving the ball again and the pressure was enough to score a second on a beautiful individual move by John M. 2-1 final, today it was better to be lucky rather than good. :)
