Fubol madness continues. Despite the Olympics and the threat of a thunder storm 18 hearty souls played on. This match saw the debut of the new practice bibs which would make any EPL side jealous. These beauties were underwritten by the anonymous Nepali industrialist who is globally acquiring franchises. Out of respect for P.T. Barnum the squad accepted the gift.
Lightning struck for Les Bleu with Nilesh scoring first and showing why he is in contention for the D2 Golden Boot award. Greg who missed last week’s match with some lame excuse quickly made his presence know. His scoring threat widened the field forcing Pawan Shresthra to sit back and defend cutting into his own scoring. He was frustrated when he launched a rocket into the scribe’s mid section. Thanks to forty years of drive through and super sizing play continued and Tika converted this fine block(?).
Pawan’s production cutback for the Red side was only a temporary setback Sudeep stepped up with cannon like shots. Once again the Ghmire brothers made their presence known. Always on the forefront of fashion Bijay sported an official Nepali Jersey. Sanjay “The Doctor” held office hours for his clinic on mid field clearing shots.
IN the second half Omkar showed what he is made of with two scores. Tika who was everywhere provided the highlight of the match. His fancy moves thwarted Omkar’s Hat Trick. Pawan P kept Les Bleu alive and put Raju the goalie through his paces. His powerful kick put the official D2 camerman Siddhi to work. As darkness set in Nilesh declared the match officially over and with “it is five o’clock somewhere” bravado declared “Miller Time.
Nilesh: We are on with our new Scrimmage Vest!
