Arsenal VS Boston Avenue Athletic Club

Boston Avenue Athletic Club Headquarters- When I received the newswire whilst on holiday revealing that the A's had bested league rival Arsenal, my article virually wrote itself. "4-2" it read, "McKenzie, McCann, and McKenna(2)" the goalscorers, "Coleman and Henson 45 minutes each in goal" was just a fill in the blanks sort of deal. Here's how I saw it (and how it probably did) go down....

Arsenal usually enter this fixture with a field full of exhausted players, due to them playing a premiership match just hours prior to kickoff. Noone reconizes a weakness in another man like club fireball Jordan McKenzie, and on 14 minutes he scored a goal that is rivalled only by the runs of Maradona ('86) and Messi ('09). McKenzie collected a barely cleared corner kick at the top of his own box and turned, only to see the red of Arsenal jerseys in his path. Rather than clear the ball and allow the Athletic's to regain their defensive shape, McKenzie began to run at players. First skipping past van Persie and Arshavin, then two step-overs were enough to see his way clear of Fabergas, Vermaelen probably fouled McKenzie but the fiery red head waqs determined to stay up, did, and went at the last defender(Gallas). Jordan calmly megged Gallas, pulled a pinch-hitter out of his soccer shorts, took the biggest hit of weed known to man, and smashed the
ball into the top left corner past Vito Mannone. 1-0 B.A.A.C.

I'm sure Austin and Greg's goals were nice too.
