Div5: DIPL FC 2, Fairfax United 0

Gotta catch up on a few entries. This game took place March 29th. Bottom line: I scored a goal to cut the deficit to 2-1, but because the net wasn't secured at the bottom, the ball passed through without touching it, and the center ref, who is TERRIBLE, didn't allow the goal. The other team's captain EVEN ADMITTED it went in. Fucking ref. It still pisses me off weeks later. To top if off, I was pretty much hacked at the entire game. Finally, after the 4th foul against me, ref gave a yellow card to their player. I despise the attitude of this other team. I'm fine with competing and accepting a better team beating our team. But if they have to do it by fouling me as I finagle around their defense, it stops being fun. Soccer shouldn't anger me, not in the bottom of a co-ed rec league. It should be played hard, but respectfully. Some teams don't get that memo.

Right after that game, I subbed in on the Div4 team that was Div3 last year, but they apparently dropped down. I was in net and we lost 4-1. That was due to many of their regular players missing. I think half the team was substitutes from other teams. I think I could have held the score to 2-1, but it was rush after rush and I couldn't stop them all. I think I got more exercise chasing all the shots that missed down the hill behind the net. That's how it goes some days.
