Nice to see Carly and Kelly get a game  :)
An interesting stat, the Magic had 4 subs in the first half, that's really unusual.

OK, I have never heard about that rule. Looking forward to my trip to NY/NJ soon.
I have added the second L in the title.

MILLBURN MAGIC 5  CENTRAL DELAWARE SA FUTURE 0

Millburn, New Jersey
17th May 2009

The Millburn Magic opened their 2009 Women's Premier Soccer League (WPSL) campaign with an impressive 5-0 victory at Millburn High School. Taking the field in front of their home fans against the Central Delaware Future in East Conference action, the Magic scored two goals in the first half, before racing away with three more in a fine season opening win.

"We had good early chances, but we also got opened up too many times in the first half," said Magic head coach Andy Sones. "Lia [Fierro] came up big for us when she had to, and the goals we scored settled us down. The early win will help us, and we'll be defensively tighter when we play next... Scoring just before half time was good, and we said at half time that the next goal would define the game. To score within a minute of the restart did wonders for us."

The Magic enjoyed large spells of possession from the start of the game; Kim Malecki in particular enjoying time on the ball as she led the Magic on offense. After fifteen minutes, the Future started to find their rhythm and create pressure on the Magic's defense. Laura DiClemente had the Future's first attempt at goal on 20 minutes; after being played through on goal, the midfielder drilled her shot straight into Magic keeper Lia Fierro.

Fierro was tested again minutes later, diving to smother the effort of Delaware forward Heather Robbins. The Future's best effort of the game came on 27 minutes; a long ball over the top of the Magic defense again finding the dangerous Robbins, who was unlucky to see her volley finish just wide of the post having beaten the diving Fierro.

That scare shook Millburn into action, and they took control for the rest of the half. The Magic were rewarded for their persistence on 35 minutes with a goal from Ryan. A cross from defender Lina Starapoli was beautifully chested down by Leah Jerome into the path of Ryan who coolly slotted the ball past Lazor with her left foot. In the 43rd minute, the Magic doubled their lead; Jerome, again involved, finding midfielder Tara Ricciardi wide on the right who beat her defender and delivered a fantastic cross which was headed home by Amanda Malkiewicz at the far post.

Straight from the second half kick off, the Magic dismissed any doubts over the result with a well taken second goal from Malkiewicz. Receiving the ball on the left hand side, the East Carolina forward cut inside, before delivering an unstoppable curling shot which past the despairing Lazor, and gave the Magic a 3-0 lead.

Laura Kurash delivered a performance full of energy, and in the 62nd minute, was rewarded when she arrived to steer home a Carly Bray corner from close range. The goal gave the Magic a 4-0 lead, but the home side was not yet finished. Indeed, the final Magic goal was the pick of them all, again delivered again by the impressive Kurash in the 78th minute. The Magic will take the field again next Wednesday, May 27th when they will host the New York Athletic Club.

Thanks.

We have a friendly against the Pocono Snow on Friday (provisional team, playing in the WPSL next year), then NY Athletic Club next Wednesday - should give us a good idea of where we are before the challenge of the Boston Aztecs. They are the reserves for the Pro Boston Breakers - all full time players, definitely among the league favorites.

It is. Double header, our women and men play Boston same day, then we go there the following Saturday (and on to Maine on the Sunday). Friendly Friday is now off... bring on Wednesday.
