Now that was fun!!!! Nothing like a 3-0 demolition of Orlando, in perfect weather, as the Black and Gold look to get some rhythm as their schedule starts to even out. The league better look out as Pipa’s Happy with that back heel goal and splitting pass for Kie Kamara’s goal. I’m sure Pipa has more magic in store for the next home game against Philadelphia Union Saturday April 25th at 7:30pm.
Philadelphia is picking up where they left off last year, right to the bottom of the table with 6pts on 8 games. It’s hard to place this team’s style of play. At times they move the ball around deftly and show a desire to keep possession. They are tied with 2 other teams for 2nd in the league with 9 so far. The good news is a new season hasn’t seemed to fix their propensity to give up late goals turning ties into loses and wins into ties. Philly features Argentine Christian Maidana, Frenchman Sebastien Le Toux, and US international Maurice Edu.
Nordecke tickets are available in the webstore for this match or to reserve and pay at the tailgate, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Tickets can be picked up under the Crew Union Tent in the mega-tailgate area.
We want to thank the Ole Farts for yet another successful catered tailgate 4/18. Crew Union members, you went through 75lbs of wings and 10lbs of fries, just FYI. The Ole Farts will return May 9th for their next catered tailgate. I want to apologize to everyone for the confusion about the North High Brewing beer being available at the last tailgate. I got my dates mixed up on that. Bring your cups to this tailgate, THERE WILL BE FREE BEER. For real this time.
The tailgate will start about 4pm and tickets must be picked up by 6:30 pm. After 6:30, webstore purchased tickets will be taken to will call and reserved unpaid for tickets will be released for general sale. At 7 pm the Nordecke March to the Match begins as all supporters march as one from the tailgate to the Nordecke.
After the game, join us at 4th Street Bar and Grill where hopefully we’ll be enjoying Toto, some victory juice, and a few post match libations.
Beyond the match this week, as the weather starts to improve, I hope you’ll join Crew Union for some pick up soccer held throughout the year. Members and non-members alike are welcome to join in; no reservations needed. The competition is light and all skill levels are welcomed. Go here for dates and times.
Glory to Columbus!!!
