RESULTS

Congratulations to England. The #1 seed edged a determined #3 India 4-3 in the finals — but it wasn’t easy. Brad Cox, Josh Berman and Mo Tall gave the Brits a seemingly easy lead, but Chris Martenson got the Indians back in the match. Cox made it 4-1, but quick goals by Griff O’Neill and Rory Steele made it a game. The final 2 minutes were tense, but England prevailed. 

The semifinals saw England beat Belgium 5-3, while Kyle Rotolo gave India the lead with 2 minutes to play, after a tight battle. Martenson scored in the waning seconds.

RULES — All games at LONG LOTS — Be there ready to start at 6:15 pm sharp! — Everyone must bring a ball!

1)  20-minute halves, running time.  Approximately 5-10 minute halftime. Shin guards are mandatory.

2)  6-v-6 plus 1 keeper; if both teams agree, they can play 7-v-7 plus 1 keeper. Keepers may use their hands WITHIN REASONABLE AREAS.  Subs may enter on any out-of-bounds or dead ball; no subbing on the fly.

3)  No referees; call your own fouls. No penalty kicks. Watermelon Cup administrators* will be in attendance at all games, and may eject or ban players for egregious or repeated fouls.

4)  No offsides, though goal-hanging is severely discouraged. This is the Watermelon Cup; if you can’t play defense as well as offense, find another sport.

5)  3 points for a win; 1 for a tie.

6)  *Watermelon Cup administrators: Dan Woog, Kurt Dasbach. Yes, Dasbach plays. He’s a very fair guy. This isn’t the Supreme Court. Get over it.
