SOCOS VS Boston Avenue Athletic Club

Boston Avenue Athletic Club Headquarters- Last Sunday A's goalkeeper Eamon Henson bagged the highest honor that can be bestowed upon a B.A.A.C. member when was given the club's "Man of the Year" award. The criteria for said award is predominantly unknown, but being a total bad-ass most certainly makes up the better part of it. Sunday's season opening match was the first time Henson would slip his mits as the reigning "Man of the Year" and Henson made a huge statement and also strengthened his case to be the first ever back to back winner, when in the 18th minute he went right through the oppositions center forward...on a breakaway...and was immediately sent off. Ladies and gentlemen...I give you Eamon Henson.

   The A's continued to create the better opportunities and even though they were out-manned were still the superior side. One perfectly weighted Patty Ryan through ball later and the Athletic's took a seemingly commanding 1-0 lead into the halftime break.

   The B.A.A.C. survived a couple of scares throughout the match and stand in/former "Player of the Year'' Fuzz made two fine saves between the pipes to keep the opposition at bay. On 62 minutes a deflected pass in the box was slotted home and The B.A.A.C. lead was doubled. In retrospect the A's probably could have done the business with 8 or 9. The result was never in question. With ten minutes to play Ben Aycock won a tackle in the center circle, Greg McKenna collected the ball and played in Sonny Dalesandro, who slotted home to put the game on ice.

   The A's play host to Athletico Owasso's arch rival next week when they play Real Owasso at the Vet at 3:00 pm.

   It should be noted that though not playing for the final 72 minutes of the match, Eamon Henson managed to dispose of 11 beers and a pack and a half of smokes. "Man of the Year".
