The rain gave us a break this past Wednesday, and everybody was eager to hit the fields for some good old-fashioned Austin Sports and Social soccer! This past Wednesday was week six, which means playoffs are just a hop, skip, and a jump away…weather permitting, of course! Keep on reading to see how a couple of teams made out this past week to earn the “Game of the Night” title, more scores, and which teams are going to the playoffs!
Game of the Night
Wide Open and Ready vs Win & Tonic
In the first half of this epic battle, Win & Tonic dominated the field, scoring 3 male goals, leaving team Wide Open and Ready not so-ready… The first half was heavily one-sided and was looking like Win & Tonic would be handing their opponent a shut out, 3-0 at the half.
The second half, however, brought out a determined Wide Open and Ready who came back onto the field with cleats blazing! They managed to chip away at the scoreboard and got within one goal of tying up the game.
Win & Tonic, now dangerously close to losing their lead, pressed hard and managed to get a female goal in the net to give their team two more points on the board, and once again pulling their lead up by 3!
Wide Open and Ready remained close on Win & Tonic’s heals, though, and managed to score a female goal of their own. Unfortunately for them, the clock was not on their side and time expired before Wide Open and Ready could try to steal the win. Final score: 5-4, Win and Tonic!
