The TDA Bulls were coming off of a Bye week when they took to the field on Friday night looking to continue their undefeated season versus their closest competitor, 2nd placed Genesis. The Bulls were without regulars Kim, Alena, Justin and Phil so Eddie was brought in as a sub to give TDA just enough to field a full lineup with no subs.
The first half started sluggishly for both teams as maybe the Holiday food and drink consumption was holding everyone back? Carolyn ended up breaking the deadlock as her free kick took a deflection past the helpless keeper for a 1-0 lead. TDA continued pushing forward but were allowing some chances at the other end and Genesis tied the game with a nice shot from distance. But that goal woke the Bulls up and Simon and Eddie bumped the lead up to 3-1 before Carolyn grabbed her second just before halftime with a nice first touch and finish. It was 5-1 at the break and the Bulls were looking in control.
The second half was more of the same as TDA dominated possession and attempted to up the lead, and Doug did just that with his first of the season to make it 6-1. Tyler was solid in net when called upon as he stretched out to snatch any passes across the box that came his way. There were plenty of chances the rest of the way for the Bulls but no more goals as 6-1 was the final score.

The Bulls next game is next Friday against the Ball Blasters at 9pm.
What? You thought there would be no pics or re-enactments, huh? Uh, no, I was just saving the best for last. I promised Vanessa I would be nice so I will only say that we should all be thankful that hospital gowns only open at the back…
We love you Alex, get well soon.
Happy New Year everyone!
