McCann FC Wins Again Off a Hat-trick from Fatima
On a cool summer day, McCann FC was able to secure a 5-3 victory over SaaS Kickers to climb to a winning record for the outdoor season.
The game started off as a tough match between two of the top teams going back and forth with possession. After a few minutes, SaaS Kickers were able to score a goal off a bit of confusion in the back. That didn’t last long though as McCann FC put the pressure on and scored 2 quick goals to go into halftime up 2-1. The first of which was a Fatima rip from the top of the 18 yard box and the second was from Julian that snuck through the goal into the side netting.
Up 2-1 at the half, Bill provided a quick pep talk to the team to keep the pressure on and not let any long balls from the SaaS team sneak through.
The game was close in the second half as McCann FC got another goal by Fatima that was a looping volley from the top of the 18 yard box to over the keeper’s head in the top left corner – beautiful finish at a very hard angle! With a 3-1 lead, McCann was feeling comfortable, however, SaaS Kickers were able to score two quick goals to level the game at 3-3!
It came down to the final five minutes of the game with no one able to predict who would score next, but Fatima was able to get free on the edge of the box and slip one past their keeper for a hat-trick! It was just the momentum McCann FC needed as the team was able to close the game with a final goal by Erick from over half field that surprised the other team. It was a great performance from McCann FC and kudos to the defense in the back for holding strong against the constant pressure.
Come out and support the team at their final game of the season on August 13th against Accounts Slayable at Asphalt Green.
