SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

A group of UI dental students, united as Filling All Cavities, drilled 4200s during the teams’ first match in the Bubble Monday.

Filling All Cavities took away a 3-2 victory over its opponent in the intramural indoor soccer kickoff.

With a strong first half, both teams scored two goals apiece in just the first 20 minutes of the half.

Cheering, players high-fived teammates each time someone scored a goal or completed a pass.

Players pushed through the pain and the sweat to work toward getting the ever-important first win.

During halftime, Talib Talib, a player on the 4200s, encouraged his teammates to try harder during the second half. He did not want this game to end in a tie — he wanted the win. Peter Blough (of Filling All Cavities) and his team relaxed and talked, waiting for the second half to begin.

The second half was all about Filling All Cavities, clearly the better team. Blough and his teammates pushed the 4200s through a tough second half. They had more scoring opportunities, more possessions of the ball, and their goalie/captain had a shut-out in the second half.

“We didn’t play well,” said goal scorer Talib. “It was the first time we played together, and it takes time to get organized.”

He was disappointed in the team’s play.

The captain of the 4200s also thought his team did not play well, but already had a solution in mind to combat its weaknesses.

“We needed more team work,” Sudheer Cheera said. “We are going to try and step it up next week and practice.”

Nathan Benassi of Filling AllCavities was happy with his teammates’ performances.

“I am really proud of how we played tonight,” Benassi said. “Most of the guys on the team only played soccer in high school. We didn’t even practice before the match. We were in class, drilling teeth.”

Blough noted it may have been a matter of natural talent.

“For the first time, we played pretty good,” Blough said. “I have guys on the team that have mad skills.”
