TRYOUTS MAKEUP DATE - TUESDAY MAY 31, 2005 - POLO FIELDS 6:00 PM
It wasn't in the cards for Vélez to repeat as state champions this year. A bruised and battered team and perhaps the largest field we've ever played on made for a bad combination. We bunkered back and defended and if not for a wet slippery ball on a routine play, the game would have been 0-0 after regulation. A through ball, however, squirted off our goalie's hands and was tucked into the goal. 1-0 3 minutes into the game. We got IN behind the D several times but "professional" fouls, some leading to yellow cards, stopped our progress near and around the 18. YMS had some but not many looks and perhaps only a couple of good looks the whole game. The goal was indeed, a gift from the soccer gods even though they owned most of the possession as we held a low line of contention. Congratulations to YMS for a well executed project plan this whole soccer year. We wish you the best and hope that you represent EPYSA well. Vélez should be proud of its fine state cup run. Some of the most inspiring and creative soccer was witnessed by the boys this spring.
Too wet, too cold, too many kids on vacation, and I'm sick. :(
