Tale of Two Very Different Games

LincSocc03Pok-O-Lincoln Boys Soccer.  Monday afternoon.  One at home, the other on the road.  One a blowout Pok-O victory, the other, a tough Pok-O loss.  One in the pouring rain, the other on a dry field.

AT LINCOLN:  The older Pok-O boys struck early, and often, and combined the offensive attack with solid goalkeeping, as they routed Camp Lincoln.  June led the way with four scores, one of which tallied while he was playing goal!  “The field was really wet and I was just trying to clear the ball back out.  But, it took a funny bounce in the puddle and went into the other goal!”  Everyone, including the Lincoln players, had to laugh at the comedy of this rare goalie score.

Papouto and Damien also scored twice for Pok-O – each had first half goals in the pouring rain to give Pok-O a 2-1 lead at the intermission (See PHOTO OF THE DAY).  Dean recorded a solo goal in the 9-3 win.

AT POK-O:  The younger Lincoln boys built up a solid lead early, and held off a late Pok-O attack in an 8-4LincSocc11 loss for the home team.  Jaime lead the scoring for Pok-O.  “We did good, The Lincoln camp was a better team, but we do our best.”  Despite the difference in talent levels, coach Oliver Moody remarked that “we really had a chance to win, but they chose to keep their bigger, physical guys in the whole game, while we made sure that everyone played a fair amount of time.

Following the game, the two camps split up into a short scrimmage of mixed teams.  “It was fun,” said Brandon.  “We showed a lot of teamwork, even playing with them.”

Soccer rematches are scheduled for Friday afternoon.  See team rosters and photos HERE.
