McCann FC Secures Playoffs with Final Regular Season Win
For the final game of the regular season, McCann FC secured a 7-2 victory over Accounts Slayable and earned a ticket to the playoffs for the outdoor season.
It was a must win game for both teams with all of the marbles on the line – a ticket to the playoffs!
That said, the game started off on the back foot for the McCann FC team as Accounts Slayable was able to start the game with a 1-0 lead off a quick shot and goal. But the McCann FC team wouldn’t go out like that – they fought back and were able to score three goals in succession to take a comfortable 3-1 lead into halftime. James was able to score the first two and Moti scored off a diving header from a Tyler cross on the wing.
Up 3-1, Bill rallied the team to continue to put the pressure on and maintain the lead.
Unfortunately, Accounts Slayable was able to get another quick goal off a fast counter attack that made the score 3-2, a slight margin heading into the final 10 minutes of the game.
The offense wouldn’t let the pressure up, though, and Konner was able to secure a nice low shot to the corner to take the score back to 4-2. James then was able to secure a hat-trick with the 5th goal of the game, but he didn’t stop there – he added another two to round his goals for the game to a total of 5. The final goal occurred in the last minute of the game and was a beautiful shot to the upper 90 that was unreachable for the opposing keeper.
Taylor, our goalie, and the rest of the backline led by Mac Fisher were able to shut down the offense of Accounts Slayable for the reminder of the game to secure the victory for the team.
Come out and support the team for their playoff run on August 20th at Asphalt Green.
