Was it ever cold! 38* (and falling) with a high wind is not comfortable viewing. And I very rarely complain about the weather.
After taking it on the chin from two professional squads, Zips were ready to beat on somebody. Youth academy Sigma FC was once again ready to oblige.
Zips came out aligned in a 4-3-3. Up top were (left to right) Diogo Pacheco, Will Jackson, David Egbo. That's right: The freshman played Centre Forward. Folks should really come out to see this kid on Saturday April 6th @ 1:00. WilJax is the real deal! He was involved in numerous scores, finishing, assisting etc. I lost count, but all three Forwards were stuffing the stat sheet against an over-matched, younger squad. Did we really score seven goals? Or were one or two of those called back for off-sides? Scoreboard was off. Zips dominated.
I cannot see Carlo Ritaccio NOT being 2019 Team Captain. May as well call him captain right now. There is absolutely no doubt of who is in charge of this team on the pitch. I challenge anyone to see this differently. Sit down in front, close to the action. Ritaccio's incessant tactical direction is clearly audible. And his teammates do what he says. He's a natural leader.
