Dublin Premier 08 Boys played two back-to-back Spring League games last weekend. First up was Saturday’s game against San Ramon FC Black. From the opening whistle, Dublin frustrated San Ramon FC with possession, winning a direct kick in the first few minutes that Sidhanth Krishnan sent home. Sid would go on to complete the hat trick, aided by an assist from Dawson Weaver in the midfield. Dawson then slammed in a goal of his own, followed by a steal and another goal from Ashwin Willy. San Ramon came out firing in the second half, managing a quick score, but Dublin answered, as Logan Lane raced down the left sideline and put the ball in to increase Dublin’s lead. Cohen Boatman then punched in a final goal and Dublin closed out the game 7-1.
On Sunday afternoon, Dublin faced a tough Mustang Bears team that had convincingly won every Spring league game by multiple goals. Mustang struck first about fifteen minutes into the game, putting Dublin down 0-1. However, Dublin kept its composure, and as the end of the first half neared, Logan split two defenders off the dribble and slotted the ball just beneath the excellent Mustang goalie’s outstretched hands to tie the game at 1-1. The second half brought more controlled play from the Dublin Premier 08 team, creating multiple scoring opportunities until the final whistle, but the game ended as a 1-1 tie, which nonetheless keeps Dublin in contention to take the bracket. Throughout the weekend, Jason Hu, Riley Tu, Daniel Huang, and Eugene Jia played with passion on both sides of the ball, maintaining possession, keeping pressure on the opposing teams, and preventing Mustang’s strikers from taking clear shots on goal.
