D2 Waltham Soccer – 7/30/2008

Report: John Cassella 

Last night the D2 booters took the pitch at Brandeis University.

The intra squad match had two sides of 7.

The quality of play was so outstanding that a large crowd of young spectators gathered to witness some of the finest football this side of Kathmandu.

They were treated to the “beautiful game” thanks to some fancy playmaking by Omkar, Pawan S, Greg,  Tika, and Nilesh. There were several EPL scouts among the spectators and they were seen talking with Prajwal, Upendra and Pawan P. who they were hoping to sign. John played and demonstrated why the US has never won a world cup.

  1. fantastic issues altogether, you simply gained a new reader. What would you recommend in regards to your post that you simply made some days in the past? Any positive?

  2. Grand display of fields, the energetic team and the Play. I have never scored a single goal in my life. John scored two goals. It is superb and unbelievable!!

  3. Stomach of Nilesh grown today than yesterday as had explicitly mentioned about it. Great way to reduce fat without spending more dollars.

  4. Upendra rarely seen in Soccer fields in Nepal, so, he needs such a good ground to play.

  5. John, your spirit, running and jumping ability and capacity to play for 90 minutes is an inspiration to young players like us. We are doomed before you as We start panting after 2 minute run.

  6. “I am playing too” – When John said this I thought he was joking but when he showed up in the field, everybody were surprised and pleased. We played for almost 90 minutes and John showed “no mercy to the opponents” through-out the game.

    Despite of “not-so-outstanding” qualities of the photos posted, it’s better to have something than nothing.

    P.S.: New England Revolutions outplayed Mexican team “Atlante” yeseterday in Superliga (Semifinal) and booked their place in Final. It’s now Houston Dynamo Vs New England Revs.
