That was fun!
In their first games of the season the Crushers showed great competitiveness, spirit and execution on set plays as they went 1-1.
In their first game a tense back-and-forth struggle between the San Jose Rockets and the Crushers looked like it would end in a 1-1 tie. However with less than a minute to go precise passes on a corner kick from Jake Bath and Ian Kinmont were deftly converted into the winning goal by Ruby Shemaria. Crushers win 2-1! Jake Bath had the first goal for the Crushers. A tip of the hat to Coaches Evonn Balcziunas and Travis Bath for calling for the set play that led to the score.
Game 2 pitted the Crushers against a very experienced Hollister side that has the personnel to score in bunches. The Crushers managed a great defensive effort but couldn’t find their offensive mojo and took a 2-0 loss.
Every Crusher (April Bryant, Milo Balcziunas, Jake Bath, Ian Kinmont, Stanley Kuang, Cosmo Rudd, Ruby Shemaria, John Starks) contributed to the wonderful day for the team. New Crushers Cosmo Rudd and Stanley Kuang played in their first games ever and performed like veterans in their debuts.
Thanks to all the friends and families for making it to Alviso to support the team.
