Fog City at Champ Camp 2011 II

With two more games under their belt, Fog City has produced an unblemished 3-0 record. In this 72 team tourney, so have a lot of other teams. The Fogsters are losing weight, energy, and electrolytes at a rapid pace, but then so is everyone else, including the fans on the sidelines. If I never have to come back to this insufferably hot, humid, godforaken city, I could die a happy man!

More details later, but in this morning's game, Fog City defeated Pittsburgh Elite, 7-4. In this one, two unrelated McGovern's were "Men of the match" – JW with 3G and 1A and Jack with numerous, strips, tips and interceptions. Defense is still playing very well, with the occasional late slide accounting for most of Pittsburgh's goals. Hey, everybody's sliding a little late in this heat, so it's completely understandable.

In the afternoon game, Fog City defeated the Bombers, a Virginia squad, 6-4. Effort by each team was episodic in this heat, but Will McKee and John Meany did well at the FO X and Jack McGovern was strong at close D. With the game tied late, Fog City's nifty attack line scored the last two goals to put the game away.

Tonight, Long Island 1 is the opponent. They are 3-0 also, so this game should determine the 1st and 2nd seeds in the bracket, both of whom will move onto the playoffs. More later....
