The unlimited team had week 3 off due to the Easter holiday weekend.
On April 10th, the new Masters Team (Over 40) registered their first win ever by defeating Annapolis United 6-4 in a hotly contested, physical and at times unsporting encounter. The bhoys went down early a very dubious PK was awarded for a shirt tug on a corner kick. Not worried, the bhoys battled back and went into the half up 3-1. Annapolis came back and played an aggressive, physical game trying to pressure and drawing several yellows as a result. Celtic stayed on their game, moved the ball around well, and banged home 3 more goals. Annapolis got several more goal in this half, two off of corner where Celtic’s man marking completely fell apart (and ongoing problem with this team that we are in the process of addressing). Still, the win was decisive and Annapolis complained bitterly after the match that not all of Celtic’s jerseys had numbers on them! Team management dropped off the jerseys at a printer today, but we’re under no illusions that the complaining will stop!
On April 12th, the Old Bhoys tied PAX City 3-3 in the third Over 30 game of the season. Celtic dominated possession, camped out in PAX’s half of the field for the entire second half but had major problems finishing, hitting the woodwork on multiple occasions. Credit is also due to PAX’s keeper who had a hell of a game. Celtic goals by Justin Young, Mike Reed and Rohan Weber. Old Bhoys are now 1-1-1.
