Redmond JV busted out of its scoring mini-slump and asserted its dominance against Sammamish 10-1!
The weather was unsettled and the wind was cold, but the popcorn was exceptionally tasty and the goals were flowing! Redmond had a monkey on its back AND a chi(m)p on its shoulder from its recent scoring drought and so it was high time to take care of business! Rabadan started the onslaught early with a trademark fancy footwork run on the right flank and cracked the ball into the left side of the goal to quiet the raucous Sammamish fans. Bilger had even happier feet than usual and pushed forward to deftly grab a couple of goals himself, off of clinical crosses from Rabadan and Price. Polly got in on the action by launching a ball skyward from way downtown, and immediately murmurs of “that’s going to be tricky…” from the boisterous Redmond supporters were realized via a tough bounce for the Sammamish keeper to manage and a Redmond goal. The second half of the contest saw a continuation of the RHS offensive explosion with a barrage of relentless Redmond scampering and striking. A few Sammamish breakaways were extinguished by the Redmond defense and keeper Condon, and as time went on the final result became more and more inevitable. Condon and Co. narrowly missed a clean sheet when a ball pin-balling around in the box during garbage time found its way into the back of the net with less than ten minutes to play.
