Groupstage // Groupstage pick up a win and loss in 4 days

Groupstage had two fixtures in four days this week. Their first game against Goalbusters seemed rather uncharacteristic as they lost 6-1. Luye Murphy had the lone goal for Groupstage as things just didn't go their way from start to finish.

They did have an opportunity to bounce back a few days later against Brooklyn Bandits. Groupstage got off to a much better start this time, getting the first goal and leading 1-0 at half time. In the second half Groupstage would tact on another goal by Luye Murphy, that was two in straight games for Murphy, and Groupstage looked in control. They would concede a goal making it 2-1, however they would quickly rebound and score their third. The final score was 3-2 as Groupstage returned to their winning ways. Their next and last game will be this Tuesday against City Foxes.

NYC Footy // NYC Footy unable to advance in playoffs

NYC Footy came up against a tough Fahrenheit 212. Their game plan was ball control and high pressing, which was tough for NYC Footy to stop. After some heroic saves and last gap defending, NYC Footy were able to preserve a scoreless game at halftime. Eventually in the second half fatigue would start to set in for NYC Footy and they conceded two goals. It was all Fahrenheit 212 would need to secure a victory. Still, NYC Footy did their best and we'd all like to congratulate them on making it this far in the playoffs.
