Sunday March 28

The mighty Waldwick Seniors were kicked off the magic carpet by a bunch of girls, again. We assembled at our old stomping grounds at Traphagen, but the big field was taken by a large group of Spanish speaking gentlemen, so we attempted to play on the small field. Overcast and cold, like 30 degrees at game time. The field is wet, unlined, and the goals are small. We had as many as 22 players at one point. Once again, scoring was started by Shamu for the blue, followed by a wild sprint down the field by Keeble. He got his goal, but pulled a muscle in his which hindered the rest of his game. The Reds racked up 6 unanswered goals, after which we switched sides so the Blues could attack going downhill. Players started leaving the field due to injury, prior commitment or lack of interest. Final score doesn't matter.

Looking ahead, it seems we will be pre-empted by girls again on April 18, and all of May. Next week is the annual Easter Sunday Jews vs. Pagans Game on the turf. The weather promises to be hot as hell. See you there.

Keeble Scores Four!

54 degrees and sunny at game time. Perfect conditions for the Mary Nancys, but we actually started 9 v. 9, and stragglers brought it up to 11 v. 11. Welcome back to Vicente and Kenning Pennington. Scoring started with Shamu shooting on an open net for the Red. Mark Schwartz dribbled, feinted and drilled a beauty for the Blue. Roccus toed in a lazer for his first and last goal of the season, and Dimos put in a beauty from outside the box. Keith was hacked in the hock, and had to leave, and Bobby didn't show, so Keeble had an absolute field day for the Red.

6-4 Red? I lost count after 2-2. We quit early after the mighty C scored and tomahawked. Nice to be back.

Sunday March 14

Mary Nancys all! 44 degrees and overcast at game time with a slight drizzle. Perfect soccer weather. Seven players showed up. We lingered till 9:30, and went home. So we had a big storm with six inches of rain, 75 mph winds, trees down, power out, transformers exploding, so what! So they changed the clocks, so what! Nancy Marys.

Sunday March 7!

Wow. First game since Feb 7. The field of dreams was still half covered with snow, but the melt continued as we played. It was a beautiful day, clear and sunny, warming from the 30's into the 40's. We had 8 v. 9 on about 70 yards of open field. Keeble scored a goal. We got kicked off the field at 11 by eight year old girls.
