We went to 2-0 for the season with an exciting 7-3 victory over Middlebury. We were playing on a lovely new pitch in Middlebury and went up 2-0 quite quickly. Then a latecomer for Middlebury joined the game and turned things around for them. By half time we were losing 3-2 thanks to three great break-away goals by them.

A few words at half time and things turned out really well with five second half goals and some of the best play I have seen these boys produce. Fine attacking headers in defence, some great long passes and runs down the wing, some amazing crosses, and great goals. I’m very happy and proud at the way they were able to turn things around.

I came within a few inches of being down several ice-creams (the prize for scoring a goal with your head).

Next week we have our first home game against New Fairfield.
