Team 3 played one hell of a game versus Team 4 today.
Team names are coming, relax...
This was the second day of pre-season scrimmage games. I had a front row seat because I was the center referee.
Team 4 came out of the starting blocks with all cylinders firing. They scored in the 7th, 12th, and 17th minute to end the first half with a score of 3-0.
Team 3 didn't give up though. Part time actor/elementary school teacher Peter Loken put on his special second half boots to score three goals in the second half, tying it up at 3-3.
It looked like the game was going to end in a tie, but the referee (me) made a bad call with minutes to go. He thought he saw a hand ball in the box (most every one on and off the field agreed that it was a bad call) and game team 4 a penalty kick, which they easily slipped into the goal.
The game ended minutes later.
Player of the game bragging rights go to Tyce Mister, who managed to get a yellow card in the first minute of the game. Congrats, Mister Mister!
Peter Loken scored all three goals for Team 3, of which he isn't even a member.
Jack Thethaiguywithanamereallyhardtopronounce ,Jersh Angeles, Nong Ikickedangelointheanklelastyearanditstillhurts, and Gil "the Cal Ripken of Godfathers" Birnbrich scored one a piece for Team 4. This was Gil's first game with NMIFA. He recieved a $100 bonus from everyone's favorite 2003 Canadian Moose Call Contest Champion for his feat.
