Welcome new Footballers to ASSC Thursday Soccer 8s at SEMP! New jerseys, new team names, new players …… same great league, same great vibe and same great camaraderie! Let’s take a look at how it all played out on the first Thursday night of the season:
In The Corner Kickin It started the season strong with a dominating game against About To Get Messi. They scored right away as the first half got under way. They showed their strong defense right off the bat allowing zero goals for About To Get Messi in the first half. Second half, In The Corner Kickin It showed no mercy and continued to pile up the goals. When the dust settled, they took the 7-0 victory with ease! Wow!
Next up, Spread The Cheeky took on Chicken Noodle Soup in a battle of defenses. Both teams held tight throughout the first half but started to gel a bit more in the second. Chick Noodle Soup scored first off a nice cross to the middle. SCORE!! They followed that up with a nifty header off a corner kick. SCORE!! Finally, they got busy in a fury in front of the net and managed to squeeze another one in the corner. SCORE!! Spread The Cheeky never gave up and managed to score a nice one late in the game but…..too little…..too late. Final score, 3-1 for The Soup!
Final game of the night, Gateway to the Weekend went up against Happy Hour Heroes. First half was neck and neck with Gateway to the Weekend taking the lead by a couple of goals right off the bat. Shortly before the half, however, Happy Hour Heroes had a really nice streak scoring two goals in the last 3 minutes to tie it up going into the half. Second half just 3 minutes in, Happy Hour Heroes made an amazing female goal, giving them the lead for the first time all game….. 5-3. Gateway to the Weekend pushed hard the rest of the game but only scored 1 more male goal making the final score 5-4, Happy Hour Heroes. What a game!!!
After the opener, it was Happy Hour time at Craftsman to welcome the new teams and throw down some new challenges for the new season. With lots of Bud Lights on hand and players looking to quench their thirst, Craftsman was the place to be. See you all again next week!
