NY Magic W-League team tied 1-1 with CFC Passion & All Five Youth Teams Earn Victories
NY Magic teams (W-League and Super Y) played six (6) games over the May 31-June 1, 2008 weekend. The Magic Super Y teams enjoyed five (5) exciting victories and the Magic W-League team earned a tie to round out the weekend. NY Magic W-League team played against Connecticut Passion on a rainy Saturday evening tying the Passion for the second time this season (1-1).
After a scoreless 43 minutes of play, the teams and fans were forced to sit out a rain delay of about 40 minutes because of a passing thunder storm with strong winds. The rest actually provided a good opportunity for the Magic to regroup and play a more defensive game in the second half. The Connecticut Passion scored first early in the second half of play after the rain delay. However, Magic soon countered with a goal by 41 year-old SUPER veteran FW, Noelle Meeke (Ballymena, Ireland). Noelle scored a beautiful goal with her golden left foot assisted by Magic young center MF, Mikaela Howell (Basing Stoke, England).
Magic missed several other opportunities to score including hitting the cross bar and a goal that was saved on the goaline. The gane ended with a 1-1 tie. (Game Stats).
The NY Magic W-League team will play their next game on Saturday, June 7 against Jersey Sky Blue in NJ at 7:30PM. Come out and "Catch the Magic"!!
