Alas, the fantastic run of the Fletcher Fútbol team came to an end yesterday in a replay of the final game. The mid-morning start, and holding the game at Tufts, ensured that light on the field wouldn’t be an issue.
Despite freezing temperatures, and final exams knocking at their doors, intrepid fans turned out to cheer for the team.
As I live not far away and had a bit of Sunday morning free time, I decided to swing by the field for a while. This, I’m afraid, was an unfortunate decision. When I arrived, toward the end of the first half, the score was tied at 0-0. But soon the HBS squad managed a goal. After a brief break, our hardworking athletes returned to the field, only to suffer the surrender of two more goals. Fearing that I was the problem, I headed home. From that moment, HBS managed no further goals, and Fletcher scored one. If only I had left a little sooner! I’m so sorry Fletcher Fútbol. I know you could have done it without me.
