Week 8 rec soccer report: boys grades 5 and 6

Bafana Bafana 2, Red Fury 3

Patrick Zahradnik scored the winning goal as Red Fury just edged Bafana Bafana 3-2 in a spirited match during which players from both sides showed off the improved passing skills supporters have come to expect from the last game of season. Finn Cork scored twice, including one off a beautifully flighted corner by Samuel Cork. In the third quarter, goalkeeper Ian Childs made a double save from point blank shots to keep his team in the lead, and he was aided all game by top-notch tackling, blocks and interceptions from central midfielder Julian Evans and defenders Cole Mackool, Gabriel Sucena and Eli Whalen.

Super Eagles 6, Azzurri 3

The Super Eagles completed the season with a win behind the solid play of Ben Glickman and heroic goalkeeping of William Capisano.  For the Azzurri Rishi Basu scored two goals, the first was set up by a through ball from Grant Ulto, the second was set up by a beautiful pass from Jon Girolamo.  John Carew scored the Azzurri’s third goal on a play which was set up again by Jon Girolamo.  Spencer Nappi was solid again anchoring the defense for the Azzurri.
