Remember Guns n' Roses' "Civil War?" The first narrative line goes: "what we've got here is failure to communicate." In our case, "what we've got here is failure to make a goal."
11th Alaska Cup 2006. IRRI Men's team had no wins, made no goals and, oh boy, were they generous... Four games and 28 goals. All against us. Bummer. Well, call it sour graping, we were bracketed with teams raring for the championship. They doing half and full volley kicks, mid field attempts (I think one even got it!). They have bodies built for medium weight wrestlers!
First game, beginning of the first half, "IRRI, let's play!" Second half, "IRRI, let's pray!" Imagine that...
But all did not end in total failure. The women's team fared much better than last year, and much, much better than us! Two wins, one draw and one loss, however, was not enough for them to advance to the next stage. Still, being part of the "team management," it was great improvement for the ladies. :) Congratulations!
