More Frustration in Draw - Week 8 Arrives Early

Alamo City Battles to 2-2 Draw With Capital District

It was a picture perfect example of the frustrations that the Alamo City Soccer Club has faced when playing their rival Capital District.  Andy Driver, Giles Barnes, and Maicon Santos all flubbing multiple chances inside the box.  Even worse, a few of the misses by Barnes were created by Driver.  That was just one match involving Alamo City players.  Then there was Kenny Cooper gaffing a PK and Kleberson on the bench as he came in for Philadelphia as a defensive sub and netting a SOG that would have won the match had he been able to be utilized.  About the only thing that went right, was the performance of newly acquired Clint Irwin in goal.  For whatever reason these types of things always seem to happen in bunches when the Gunners are on the schedule.  The first leg of the BSL Classic saw shared points and also a shared appreciation for Juan Pablo Angel.  While most of his points were compiled while in a Gunners uniform, the BSL legend played for Alamo City as well.  There's not time to sit and mope as Week 8 starts on Wednesday night and Stoners FC is the opponent.

Kenny Cooper
Daigo Kobayashi
