Boston Avenue Athletic Club Headquarters- A's Captain Ben Fell helped keep club affairs in order Sunday when his two goals saw the first team avoid the scare and humiliation of losing to the reserve team.

Jason Ganus opened the scoring and his personal scoring account for the season when he slotted home in the 25th minute. The reserves answered back when first team hopeful Brian McCurdy's masterful chip beat "Player of the Year" Fuzz from 20 yards to put the teams on level terms.

Halftime 1-1

The second half of a Sunday league match tends to bring out the worst in players footballing abilities. Sunday was different. The match became a cracking affair and on 51 minutes A's Captain Ben Fell rifled home from 12 yards to give the first team the lead. Then the tides turned. The reserves apparently misread the script and after a second McCurdy goal and a fine finish from former first teamer Jason Rogers they were nearing the unthinkable...upsetting the first team. With 20 minutes remaining A's stopper Ryan Harrison broke his maiden for the club and followed it up with the worst celebration in club history (it had something to do with him wearing his jersey as shorts...terrible). At 3-3 and everything on the line Captain Fell took the match by the scruff of the neck and willed (or arm-balled) in the deciding goal, thus avoiding the embarrassment of sharing points with the club's reserve team.

The A's take on reigning state champion Boulder FC Sunday at 3:00 pm at Veterans Park. There'll probably be fights and shit.
