The Sun sports game of the week was an AMICC adult co-ed soccer match between the Don Meilner & Son Construction team and Florida Discount Signs. Each team has been playing very good soccer lately and was primed to see how good they really were.

Both teams showcased their skills early by playing together well. A combination of good solid defense and goal tending, matched with controlled passing and shooting on offense, was fun to watch. For 10 minutes, this back and forth soccer went on until, finally, Florida Discount Signs struck first with a goal by Matt Kretzmann. Five minutes later, B.J Grant fed a nice pass to Daniel Anderson, who scored, and Discount Signs was up 2-0.

With only 30 seconds left in the first half, Hampton Harrison sent a nice lead pass up to midfielder Kretzmann. Kretzmann dribbled to the left, reversed field to the right and then went upper right corner for his second goal of the game. Great goal tending from Josh Peurifoy helped Florida Discount Signs to a first half shutout and a 3-0 halftime lead.

About seven minutes into the half, Don Meilner & Son Construction got the spark it needed. Rich Bell took a free kick from just under mid-field. He ripped it towards the goalie, and the deflection rebound found the foot of teammate Lindsey Weaver. Weaver then blasted it off the goalie and in for their team's first goal, 3-1.

Discount Signs bounced right back three minutes later when Daniel Anderson sent a beautiful crossing pass up to Julia Weiss, who one-timed it in for the goal, 4-1. DM&S Construction came right back and answered when Paul Hayward gave a quick pass to Matt Plummer, whose shot went off the goalie and in, 4-2.

With just under four minutes to play, Daniel Anderson carried the ball up through the middle before getting another assist on a sweet pass left to Hampton Harrison. Harrison one-timed it into the back of the net, 5-2 Discount Signs.

With only two minutes left, the DM&S Construction team was still relentless. Timmy Tedesco showed some superior ball control when he dribbled to the right corner, around two defenders and then shot low to the right for the goal, score 5-3.

DM&S Construction may have outscored Discount Signs three to two in the second half, but came up short in the end 5-3 as the final. With the Florida Discount Signs win, it moved into a tie for third place with Don Meilner & Son Construction. Both teams seem primed and ready for the playoffs to start in just three weeks.
