Soccer Sunday (busted)

Again a weekend full of football-istic events. After watching most of a new becoming classic Romanian derby between Steaua Bucharest and CFR Cluj that ended in an unfortunate draw for both of them, Sunday was the day of the semis in the intramural soccer competition here at RPI. After wining the C league last season and clinching the first spot in the B league this year (undefeated), the expectations were naturally, pretty high. However, as an old Romanian saying preaches, "the plan at home usually differs from the one at the market" unfortunately we lost 3-0 to an inferior team that had 4 shots on goal and defended forcefully throughout the game. Uninspired in attacking the goal and unfortunate in defense, we let it slip away. Too bad.
