Czechoslovakia 2 vs E Fishkill 2 regulation
After PKs Czechs were the winner 3-2
Sunday, June 17th at the Germania soccer complex
Great day to be watching a soccer game live yesterday. I’m not talking about Germany vs Mexico…..
Especially if it was the championship final between the two top teams in our Over 30 division!Emoji
Germania and Czechoslovakia came out to play! And what a show they put on for the lucky
ones there on the side line. The battle started immediately after Rob Miller blew the starting whistle, near misses and shots stopped by the post on both sides. The Czechs got on the board with a ball in the net and Germania soon followed with a goal of their own to tie the game!
By half time, after scoring two more goals they went to break with a 2 – 2 tie score!
Another entertaining half was in store for us. Things got a bit heated at times between players.
On five occasions Mr. Miller had to show the the yellow card – nothing too serious, but the boys got the message and went back to play clean football! Matt Viggiano and Peter Fatol – the two coaches should get a lot of credit for keeping the boys in line.
Two more goals by the Czechs and two by Germania, one just minutes before end of regulation time, forced the game into extra time. The score was 4-4 at regulation time! Two 15 minutes half’s…. here we go!
First half of extra time saw both teams making numerous attempts to put the ball in the net. There was no score!
It was a different story during the second half of extra time. By the 7TH minute, Peter Trlica scored the goal that was going to win the game for the Czechs.
He managed, to stop a long ball on the right wing ( Which he had tried to do on many occasions during the game ), just outside the box and dribble past a defender to drive a hard left foot shot passed the keeper.
The next 8 minutes saw the boys from Germania marching toward goal to tie the game up one more time. But it was not to be!
A clear shot just outside the box that went high above the cross bar and two more that the keeper was able to stop was all that was left before Rob Miller blew the triple whistle!
After the game, everybody got together to enjoy some good food and a cold drink provided with the courtesy of our league!
A remark from the Germania side was all I needed to hear to make my work there complete.
The game yesterday, was much more interesting than the State cup game they played and won two weeks ago!
One more time, Congrats to Germania for Winning the NY State cup O-30 and
congrats to Czechoslovakia for winning the EDSL O-30 championship game 2017-2018
