Whitecaps VS Boston Avenue Athletic Club

Boston Avenue Athletic Club Headquarters- The Athletic's saw off a feisty Whitecaps side 5-3 Sunday. Nothing very exciting or comical occurred during the match. The 'Caps did have one center defender who looked like Sgt. Slaughter and the other was a Jamaican named "Herbie"...so I guess that's kinda funny.

The A's took the lead in the 17th minute when white hot Andy Kern found the corner of the net...again. Kern's 4th goal in 2 games gave the A's a short-lived lead. The Whitecaps equalized 5 minutes later and the two sides entered half-time knotted at 1.

The second half was the most entertaining in years for the A's. The Whitecaps "crossed" a ball into the net in the 49th minute thus giving them a 2-1 lead. They then proceeded to kick the ball as far out of bounds as possible every time it was near the sidelines. This worked well until the 60th minute...when the A's equalized (2-2). Now that the ball was being kept in play, the A's continued to further assert their dominance, and in the 64th minute a Matt McFeely shot/pass was neatly re-directed home by forward Jason Ganus giving re-establishing a 1 goal lead (3-2). A pinpoint cross from Andy Kern was nodded in, giving the B.A.A.C. their first two goal lead(4-2)...which was cancelled out three minutes later (4-3). With the result again in question A's forward Sonny Dalesandro finished the 'Caps off with a well struck effort to the far post (5-3).

The result will hopefully provide the right amount of confidence to propel the club to their third consecutive Soktoberfest title.
