Goals provided by Anthony Plant, Brian Chaput(2), Rachel Chaput(1 for 2pts), and Roberto “Tico” Montalvo. The Wave defeated Fighting Lewisville Lakers 6-2.
Bill Patton led off the scoring with a sizzling penalty kick into the upper 90. The blast left the Futballerz keeper glued to his spot as it powered into the roof of the goal. Newcomer Kristin Smith dominated the offensive midfield in her debut. Late in the 2nd half Anthony Plant could find nobody to pass the ball to so as a last resort decided to pass it into the back of the net. This win ends a losing streak that stretched for over 2 seasons. Bobby Folsom and the defense end an even longer streak with this shutout win.
Last season The Wave dropped both contests with the Goal Diggers 8-0 and 6-0. The final score this past Friday was 2-0 in favor of Goal Diggers. A Marked improvement especially with a brand new unpracticed formation, 6 new players, only 3 men subs and 1 woman sub. Also note that 1 of the 2 goals was an own goal 5 minutes into the game.
Due to a necessary team realignment, we have had to make changes to Div Over 30C. This is now a 5 team division, which means unfortunately, each week one team will have a bye week. Also, due to this now being a 5 team division, there will not be playoffs, however each team will get 8 games, playing each team twice. The winner of the division will be determined by final points at the end of the season and will still go home with the fabulous prize – a CHAMPIONS t-shirt! The 2nd place team will still receive a shirt as well. Our apologies for this late change!
