A lackluster performance on Saturday turns into a 5-1 defeat to top team Arnold and Bart
SOCCER CITY, ETOBICOKE - Ouzo came out flat against league leaders - Arnold and Bart on Saturday. Two early goals by the Polish leaders deflated the boys in what turned out to be the ugliest game of the season. "I just don't think we we're focused - me especially." Said a "half-drunk" Delaney after the game at the team's after party. "We were getting beat to every 50/50 ball out there" That hit the nail right on the head. Ouzo has been a team that is known for there toughness and heart, but not on Saturday.
The team did have there share of chances again though. "With a little bit of luck, a few of those could have went in" said a hobbled Anderson. This coming from a guy that hasn't scored in 4 games - a personal record for the veteran midfielder.
Ouzo did get on the team sheet late in the game by a nice feed from Rob Rusnov to a wide open Gus, who slotted home his 3rd goal of the season.
It was said that a small group of fans at Soccer City were heard chanting "Bring back Haus, Bring back Haus". The fans might have a point. Young Haus has only been called up for one game this year and scored two goals. "Where has Haus been the last few games?" Said Stu Fletcher. "We need his firepower back in the line up". Some of the veteran's on this team might have to step aside to let some of the youth get there turn. Only time will tell if this young promising star gets his shot again this year. Stay tuned.
On a disappointing note, Winger's lounge (home to Ouzo F.C's after party's) was closed for a Christmas party. With no place to go, and no apparent invite to the Christmas party, Ouzo took their sorrows to the "Wild Goose" down the road. This is a problem that Management will bring up to the owners of Soccer City at their annual meeting.
Ouzo's next game is against rivals Raging Bulls, which looks like it could potentially make or break the season for the boys. Sitting at 3-3, the squad really needs to start there play-off push.
