The Wave held a 2-0 lead at halftime on a 2pt Rachel Chaput goal assisted by Nikki Wooldridge and Bill Patton. The lead held until half way through the 2nd half. Metro United seemed to panic a little as they started to play overly physical. They are good enough to not have to resort to that kind of play. It was very disappointing to see. People could easily have gotten hurt. Metro scored 3 goals one of which was a 2 pointer. The Wave clawed back 1 on a goal from Brian Chaput. But there was no more to be had. Metro scored 2 more in the waning minutes as The Wave ran out of gas. The game finished 6-3 in favor of Metro United.
Wow! Did you see the scores of the 2 games between Futballerz and Fighting Lewisville Lakers? Check out the Week 5 and Week 6 game results.
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!
