The Sun Sports game of the week was an Anna Maria Island Community Center adult co-ed soccer match between the Island Gourmet team and the Island Pest Control team. Both lost their opening game last week and were looking to get into the win column.
For the majority of the first half, it was a defensive game where no one could score. For Island Gourmet, it was strong defense by Diego Felipe and goal tending by Nate Talucci, who finished the game with 10 saves. For the Island Pest Control team, strong defense by Tony Frudakis and Oliver Petereit plus the goaltending of Dave Green, who finished with 19 saves, kept the score zero to zero.
It wasn’t until there was five minutes left in the half that Island Gourmet broke the scoreless tie. Adam Bujarski ripped a shot from the middle of the field that was deflected by the goalie and saved. Teammate Tim Tedesco was in the right place at the right time and knocked the rebound in for the goal, making it 1-0.
Two minutes later, Adam Bujarski stole a pass and went on a breakaway one-on-one with the goalie. Dave Green mades a spectacular save but Bujarski ripped the rebound in high center for the goal. The score remained the same and it was 2-0 Island Gourmet at the half.
The Island Pest Control team came out in the second half with new energy. One minute into the half, Drew Twitchell blasts a hard shot on goal. The rebound was picked up by Greg Ross who found the back of the net for the goal. Score 2-1, Island Gourmet.
Five minutes into the half, Zach Gilliland sends a nice lead pass up the right side to Bujarski. He dribbles down the right side and shoots across field low left and scores his second goal of the game giving Island Gourmet a 3-1 advantage.
The next goal came with only eight minutes left in the game for Island Pest Control. A beautifully executed give and go between Teddy Louloudes and Molly Bellairs. Teddy passed to Molly in the middle of the field. She passed right back to Teddy streaking down the right side. Teddy picked up the pass and shot upper left corner for the goal, tripping Gourment’s lead to 3-2.
Two minutes later, Teddy takes a throw-in pass up the middle of the field and past two defenders. He shoots low left thru a crowd of people for his second goal and ties game at 3-3.
With less than five minutes left, Island Gourmet turns up the offensive pressure. Within a two minute time frame, the Island Gourmet team missed a free penalty kick and banged two balls off the cross bar. The excitement mounted but the Island Pest Control defense kept them from scoring.
With only one and a half minutes left in the game, the Island Pest Control persistence broke the tie and took the lead for the first time. Steve Oelfke scored the winning goal on a low hard shot that deflected off an Island Gourmet player and past the goalie. Final score 4 to 3 Island Pest Control.
