Livermore Pythons Vs Firebirds

The Livermore Pythons made an excellent start in the Sonoma Halloween Tournament. Every Livermore player worked hard in the heavy, muddy conditions and they were justly rewarded. The first half was tough and the teams were evenly matched and, in fact, the Firebirds would have been ahead at half time had they not been offside. The second half was very different and the Pythons were clearly the dominant team. Kevin Russo scored the first goal for Livermore. A Python shot was deflected to Greg Napolitano who trapped the ball, passed to Kevin Russo who then made no mistake in shooting and scoring. A few minutes later Jeffery Pennewell collected the ball in his own half and took the ball way down the field. His cross resulted in a scramble close to the penalty spot and Scott Lassey finally got a strong foot to it and slid the ball to the left of the keeper to score. Livermore pressed and pressed ahead some more and three offsides later Scott Lassey, after an assist from Justin Erspamer, took a long shot to the top right of the goal and made it 3-0.

Livermore Pythons Vs Blackhawks

This was a rough physical game and the Pythons were clearly at a disadvantage to a larger more powerful team. The Blackhawks dispatched their first opponents 7-0 and quickly took the lead against the Pythons. But Livermore dug in and fought to avoid further goals and by half time it was still 1-0. The second half was tougher still but the Pythons gave up only two more goals.

Result: Livermore Pythons 0 Blackhawks 3

Livermore Pythons Vs. Sonoma Alliance

The Pythons needed to win to advance to the consolation round and they knew that this team was beaten 7-0 by the Blackhawks but the Pythons only gave up 3 goals - so expectations were high that they could win. Within a few minutes it was clear that it was not going to be easy to win and shortly thereafter the Ball Hogs took the lead. Three more goals later the game was over and the Pythons were out of the tournament

SUMMARY

The Pythons had a good tournament, started well but were overpowered by two stronger more physical teams. Scott Lassey and Kevin Russo scored goals and Kenneth Hansen in defense and also attack and Danny Upp in goal were outstanding.
