Boston Avenue Athletic Club Headquarters- Last spring Empire F.C. defeated the B.A.A.C. 2-1 at Veterans Park. Since then the A's have put together a remarkable streak of 18 games in a row without suffering a single defeat. This streak has included the hoisting of two cups and a division crown. But, as they say in fairy tales and shit...All good things must come to an end.

Empire took the lead on 38 minutes when reigning player of the year Kevin "Fuzz" Coleman was beaten by a sublime half-volley-chip-thing. The A's had a few half chances but were only truly threatening once or twice. The half came with Empire holding on to a comfortable 1-0 lead.

The second half was similar to the first Empire as looked a bit more spritely and in the 70th minute an Empire midfielder scored the goal of his life.

"I could tell by the look of total shock on his face that he couldn't have meant it" said A's captain Ben Fell smugly.

"I think eyes were actually shut when he hit it"

The A's tested the opposition's goalkeeper on a couple of occasions but he proved equal to all tasks offered. When the final whistle blew it meant 0 points had been taken from thye match, but it seemed more like the end of a brilliant era in club history that may never be duplicated (mostly because of our annual weight gain).

The A's take on the B.A.A.C. Reserves Sunday, and what reserve team honestly could threaten their own first team?
