The McCann FC soccer team kicked off their second game of the summer corporate league season on 7/24 against BD FC. The team came away victorious again with a 3-1 victory. The team is undefeated with a 2-0 record in the league. It was another terrific game and we had 18 players show up to play. With the 25-minute halves, it’s the perfect amount for continuous subbing.
The game started off with our team quickly falling behind to a 1-0 deficit, so we had to put our game faces on and get to business. A few minutes later, Tyler kicked a superb free kick which was beautifully finished by Brie with a header to the opposite corner of the goal. With the game tied 1-1, Lert hit a left footed shot that went to the bottom right corner and the goalie was unable to stop it, which gave us a 2-1 lead.
After half-time, the other team pressed forward trying for an equalizer. In doing so, our team was able to counterattack down the left side of the field and Eden passed the ball across the box to Bill, who hit it first touch and struck it with a vengeance to laser it into the top right corner after deflecting off an opponent’s leg. This sealed the game for the McCann team and we were able to walk away with a well-earned 3-1 victory.
We all went out to celebrate after the game at our favorite local spot, East End Bar and Grill. Songs were sung and good times were had by the McCann FC soccer team as a group! Our next game is Tuesday, 7/31, against the Yellow Sox. Stay tuned for more updates!
