Well, what a match it was. Kickoff started as the sun withdrew behind the Manhattan skyline as our team (with one sub) took it to the Hoboken club. The teams were well matched but, possession remained mostly with Soccer Heals throughout the game resulting in a 4-1 victory for our young team. All in all a great fundraiser with the only negative note being that the venue didn't allow for maximum fundraising. It was by a walker's path and very open to the public allowing for people to come and go as they pleased. In total we raised 500$ which, certainly helps the cause. Thanks Lounge 11 and the referees for coming out and providing a top notch match! Everyone was very honored and happy to see the Burmese monks in attendance! Check out the pictures...
One of the refs made this comment via e-mail after the match:
"All three of us had a great time. Unfortunately, many of the games we work aren't played with the same skills and sporting mentality exhibited by your teams last night. We had a lot of fun. Thanks for the invitation."
