Austring, Fendrik and Fairman acquisition win

For Austring, Fendrik and Fairman coach Ray Dagostin, the verdict is in: a new on-field policy is guilty ... of being effective.

For Austring, Fendrik and Fairman coach Ray Dagostin, the verdict is in: a new on-field policy is guilty … of being effective.

“After New Year’s, I got the work ethic into them; everybody got to the ball first,” said Dagostin. “If we out work the other team good things will happen. And good things have been happening so everyone has bought into this work ethic.”

Leaving little room for error, Austring, Fendrik and Fairman managed to pull off a 2-1 win over Property Guys in U-11 soccer at the Canada Games Centre on Wednesday.

Tied 1-1 with four minutes to play, the lawyer crew’s Elias Sagar found the back of the Property Guys’ net through a crowd in front. Sagar, who scored his team’s first goal six minutes into the game, got the MVP nod from his coach, albeit, reluctantly.

“It’s really tough to pick an MVP, but he did score both goals,” said Dagostin. “He’s a hard worker and a good soccer player.

“John (Dagostin) in net, he played great – got hit in the face and kept playing. Everybody out there – they all played hard. So it’s tough to pick one (MVP).”

The Property Guys got on the board midway through the second half, with Mackenzie Shaw taking a shot from the corner that clipped the goalkeeper’s leg, getting redirected into the net.

“On Mackenzie’s goal the ball touched four of our players before going into the net,” said Property Guys coach Pat Shaw. “So we’re moving the ball, looking around and making the passes.”

As a result of his playmaking, goal and willingness to play in net, Shaw was named his team’s MVP for the game.

“Just hard work, stepping up to play goal – that’s always a battle, who’s going to be goalie today,” said Shaw. “His playmaking; he’s always got his head up, is looking around and constant hard work. He doesn’t give up after he moves the ball; he’s not walking back, he’s running back.”

Early on in the game Austring, Fendrik and Fairman looked to be in trouble, allowing some scoring chances and failing to get a shot on net in the first five minutes of play. However, that’s par for the course, said Dagostin.

“Our team always starts slow, so I try to get an intense warm-up because it gets the blood flowing and gets them more into the game,” he said. “The second half is our half.”

For the Property Guys, who struggled for wins at the start of the season, a close loss is still a sign of improvement.

“Previously these guys have beaten us pretty bad, so it was a good showing for us,” said Shaw. “I thought we played well. We were moving the ball.

“I’ve seen a lot of improvement on all the teams. At this age, these kids grow so fast, they’re so eager, and they soak it in like sponges. It’s so good to see them use the stuff you teach them.

“I love coaching this age.”
