The Omega Men dedicated the final game of the season, at 10:30 on Wednesday, to Manny who is undergoing ankle surgery and will be out of the game for 3-6 months.  We wish him a speedy recovery.

With three subs against a young team we thought we were in for a hard night. But we've been watching the Omega youngsters demonstrate how to roll the ball!  Mike M and Steve D did a particularly nice job of keeping possession by passing side to side until space opened up in mid-field.  On occasion Mike R would roll to Steve, then Steve to Mike, then Mike to the mid-field on the left side and on into attack.  Kyle did a great job opening himself up to receive the ball in mid-field and worked well with Matt and Leo in transition to attack. We were also helped considerably by a good friend of Manny's (whose name I can't recall, sorry), who did some energetic work up and down the field and scored our first goal.

In any event, we won 5-3.  More importantly we were proud of how we played soccer and knew Gaspard would have enjoyed watching and even playing alongside us.
