Wave Shortage Higher Than Expected

The Wave was expecting to field a short lineup against last season’s champions Killer Ducks Wiser, but instead of starting 1 female player short they actually started 2 females short and 2 men short. The planned starting formation of 4-3-2 was hastily changed to 4-2-0, 7 v 11. The game almost did not happen at all as The Wave stood 2 short of the required 7 players at the 7pm start time. A good while later Carmen Smith and May MacGregor showed up just in time to avoid the forfeit. That prevented the first forfeit in the 29 year history of The Wave. (not counting the forfeit that decided the 0-0 draw at the end of the Championship game back in 2,00?something?, but that is another story)

The Wave frustrated The Ducks early in the game, but that did not last very long as The Ducks started to send in their subs and The Wave started to wear down. Despite increasing The Wave’s lineup to 9 players with the late additions of David Davila and Tico, , they were still no match for the Killer Ducks 11, or should I say their 18 including their subs.

The Wave did have a few good chances as they sent Bill Patton, May MacGregor and Christi Kurtz up to join Roberto “Tico” Montalvo and David Davila into the attack.

In the end The Ducks were trying hard not to run up the score, again. Killer Ducks Wiser 9 – The Wave 0

It Has Been 2 Years Since The Wave Scored 5 Goals In a Game

The Wave offense came alive on Friday (11/1/2019) scoring 5 goals.  The last time that happened was 4 seasons ago (11/2017) against a much weaker opponent.  Rotolo scored first but Rachel Chaput opened up The Wave’s account with a shot over the outstretched hands of Rotolo’s keeper for a 2 pointer.  Brian Chaput assisted.

The Wave led 2-1 at halftime.

Tom scored on a fast break on a pass from Rachel.  Brian scored on 2 fast breaks assisted by Rachel and <?not sure?>.

Unfortunately The Wave ended up losing the game 8-5.

The Wave might have had a chance to win if somebody had stopped Rodney from playing.  He played terrible near the end of the game but played much worse during the rest of the game.

The Wave Drop Opener Due to Formation Blunder

Terrible mixup in the lineup and formation was the main reason for the lopsided 8-2 loss to United O40.  It started with a miscommunication which led to The Wave playing with only 10 players in the opening minutes.  A player was added but that was not he end of the trouble.  Somehow The Wave had 4 forwards which left only 2 in the midfield.  Not only that the 2 were shifted left which meant there was no right midfielder for almost 20 minutes.  The Wave gave up 5 goals in 10 minutes playing in an untenable 4-2-4 formation with no midfielder on the right side.

Coach Rodney Yoshida thought he could give everyone their assignments before the start of the game, but that did not work as well as expected.  Every restart (water breaks and half time) occurred with The Wave fielding only 10 players.  Clearly the coaching needs some improvement.

Not Enough

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.

That’s 2 in a Row!

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.

The Wave End Drought With a 2-0 Victory

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.
