Entry for September 25, 2005 – Celtic Harest Ends in success


John T, DDI Mike L, Greg O. and yours truely after the Div1 U16G Consolation match. This was the very last match of the tournament and it ended in kicks from the penalty mark – and Fremont who was in the consolation match lost because it missed it’s first kick. All other kicks were made.


Entry for September 24, 2005 – Earthquakes tie Dallas 1-1


Kathleen W enjoys her first ever Earthquakes match. Note the new Earthquakes shirt I got from my Nephew for my birthday. So with my scarf I am now the complete earthquakes fan.

This was a tough match for the young refere with all three referees on the field durning an ugly incident which resulted in two ejections. A penalty kick agains the Earthquakes (I think on Onstadt but I was fiddling with the camara for the above picture) was not popular either with the home fans.

Entry for September 21, 2005 – Earthquakes beat Fire 2-0, Brian Hall centers


Today I scanned the Adobe 7.0 Reader help and credits, found the name Ken Feuerman. On a whim I decided to call  Adobe to see if he worked there. He did and he agreed to go to the Earthquakes match with me that evening. Previously we had only been meet each other on the soccer field in Fremont. Boy that made the world seem small. Devlin C & his friend Casey joined Ken and I at the earthquakes match.

Yes that is the Ryan’s in the background. Bredan’s beer, Brendan Jr. next, then Rebbecca & her cousin Amanda in the middle of picture.

This match had Brian Hall as the center (yea!) and Kari Seitz as the fourth official (double yea!!). Brian fresh off his match in Mexico city (Panama @ Mexico world cup qualifier) called a penalty kick against keeper Zack Thorton! (I just watch the evening news and saw the Thorton lung that had no chance on the ball and took out the legs of the attacking Earthquake forward. Damn, Brian makes the right call again!) Two plays he had the home team fans on their feet booing (yes Brian loves it!). The first Earthquakes goal was a brilliant tip by Duane over brick wall Zack’s head.

Maria Elena’s Mexican lunch in Alviso was great

Entry for September 17, 2005 – Soccer Saturday in Central Park


Advanced U15B GSSL match in Central Park Fremont, Dalang centered and did the best job I’ve seen him do (but too many cautions). Doug L has become a great AR and he showed it in this match.
