Ouzo takes one off the chin in a 8-4 loss to MESOPOTAMIA

There was a buzz around Soccer City last night about some "New and improved" Ouzo squad.  After winning there first two games and on a high, Ouzo briefly came back to life in a 8-4 loss on Sunday night. The boys came out of the gates flat and as a result went down two goals early. They managed to close the gap to 3-2 at half with first half strikes by Stuart Fletcher and a late goal by newcomer Chris Burton.

The momentum seemed to be slowly shifting towards Ouzo at the end of the first half, but a few mental lapses and some shaky defending early in the second half resulted in back-to-back goals for Mesopotamia. Fitness seemed to be a problem in the second half, but even as the legs grew tired, the boys still pressed. Second half goals by Jesse Geisel and Chris Burton finished the scoring for Ouzo. The boys should keep their heads high as they controlled major parts of the game, but couldn't capitalize on their chances.

Game MVP goes to Mike Michaelides, after shutting down their top goal scorer in a gutsy performance by the 2nd year player out of Kitchener.

The boys finished the night with a few pints to close down Wingers (2:30AM) for the first time this season. Once again proving that win or lose, we've still got our booze.  

Ouzo now sit at 2-1 after their first 3 games.
