Playoff grab bag

I’m taking the day off to celebrate my 33rd birthday, even though that date actually arrived yesterday.

Nobody called me when they made out the soccer playoff schedule…

Nevermind that, let’s empty out the notebook, shall we?

About last night

As you can see from the link above, I attended last night’s game between Fayetteville Academy and Concord First Assembly.

Both sets of Eagles played well, and the physicality was at the level you’d expect for a playoff match. Anyone who’s ever sat near me at a match knows I like artistic football, rather than the route one, “kick it as hard as you can” approach. The Academy’s Gloria Douglas holds the ball up well, and does a good job working passes to Joi Chrishon out on the right wing.

Both had a goal and an assist last night.

Let’s give a shout to Nellie Johnson and the Eagle defense as well. First Assembly didn’t really have a clean look at goal all night.

And now, a bit of multimedia…

    Its going to be interesting to see if the Bulldogs can learn from the early season loss to New Hanover…and get over the hump into the 3rd round.
