1st Place Regular Season (6-2 record) - 2nd Place Tournament
May 24, 2016. Lost 4-5 in the championship game. Austin scored in the 1st quarter on a direct kick, then Ben scored, giving them a 2-0 lead. The opposing team ripped off 4 goals in the 2nd quarter though, leaving the team in a hole at the half. In the 3rd quarter William scored off a corner from Austin, then Austin scored again. The game held even until midway through the 4th when the opposing team's defense got a good kick off after our defense cleared it out. So Omega got 1st in the regular season and runner-up in the tournament. It was a good season with lots of wins, played amongst good friends. The parents for our team were great and I could not have asked for a better coach than Jackson. He kept things fun and stress free, while still coaxing hard play and effort from the team.
May 23, 2016. A close 3-2 win
in the tournament. Ben scored one and Austin scored two in a rainy, muddy,
May 17, 2016. A 4-5 loss.
After going down 0-4, Team Omega stormed back in the 2nd half to only lose by
one. The second half was very fun to watch, with great play by both teams.
Austin scored 3 goals, James scored 1. James was the 7th person on the
team to score this year, that is fantastic.
May 10, 2016. From what I
hear, it was a close, hard fought 2-1 win against the only team to beat Ben's
team this year. Omega's 6-1 record locks them in for first place in the
regular season. Austin scored both goals for the team.
May 7, 2016. A 4-0 win. Austin scored 2 goals, Ben 1 and Devin 1. Ben had just finished playing two indoor soccer games, so he was a little spent by the end, but he still played great and scored in the closing minutes. The game was closer than the score indicated and Omega's defense came through again and again.
26, 2016. Team Omega moved into 1st place with a 6-3 win over the hustling
RCC Foundation team. Omega is the only team so far to beat RCC.
Omega's record of 4-1 puts them one slim point ahead of the 3-0-2 Team X-Treme.
Ben scored off a great, long punt from Jack. Leo and William both scored
off corner kicks and Austin scored another hat trick. Even with all that
offense, I think the game really belonged to the defense. Great job Omega.
After six games, Ben has 6 goals, Austin 13, with Morgan, Leo and William
scoring 1 each.
19, 2016. Ben and Austin each scored 2 goals in a 4-3 win over our good
friends on Team Hodges Realty. They each scored off passes from the other,
then each scored one solo. Ben fielded a throw-in from Jack, then battled
through the fullbacks to score on a great kick. Austin scored from outside
the box on a direct kick following a hand ball. It was a really fun game
to watch as it could have went either way. Jack played goalie in the 1st
and 4th, with James handling the job in the 2nd and Spring in the 3rd.
April 16, 2016. A 1-4 loss in a friendly at Lambsburg, Virginia. Ben scored the team's only goal off a great crossing pass from Austin. The other team had a wider age range and included some very talented bigger kids. I thought the coaches and players for Team Omega performed great. Jack made some phenomenal plays in the goalie box. James played goalie well too. Morgan's throw-ins are super. Devin is playing with tremendous hustle, the whole team is looking pretty good.
April 12, 2016.
A 3-4 loss, the record is now 2-1. After staying 0-0 for most of the first
half, both teams scored late in the 2nd quarter. Ben's team then went up
3-1 behind Austin's three goals. The opposing team scored once on a PK,
then two more to take a late game lead. Ben and his whole team played
well, it was a very evenly matched game.
April 9, 2016. A 4-2 win puts the team at 2-0 on the season. Austin scored 3 goals, one on a PK, and Ben scored once in Jackson's coaching debut.
April 7, 2016. Ben's team
opened the season with a 4-3 win over RCC Foundation. Morgan scored 1
goal, Austin 2, then with the score tied 3-3, Ben scored the game winning goal
with time running out. He fielded a shallow punt from the opposing team's
goalie, then dribbled it through the fullbacks before hitting the upper 90 on a
great kick past the goalie. Jackson was at a track meet, so Simon was the
team's coach this game. Ben played all 4 quarters at forward.
