Pan Am Bronze Medalists - USA 45's

An exciting day in Santiago (or somewhere near there) both USA teams took home the Bronze
medals in two very different fashions.  The 35'ers went up 1 nil early and followed with a second
half goal to close out Chile 2 - 0 for the win, while in the other game, it took additional time and
penalties to beat GB for the third successive time spanning 2 tournaments.

Brett Epstein struck from 27 yards out on a square ball from Elliot Koolik to take the lead only
for GB to tie late in the game.  (Details still pouring in).  

Overtime and penalties completed with the USA on top and in a repeat of the Maccabiah 2013,
USA beat GB who will not be happy that they were beaten by "Americans.....AGAIN!

Bronze Medal Match

USA will play Great Britain in a Bronze Medal re match of Maccabiah 2013.  Many of the same 
players represent their teams in the Pan Am games and GB will look to avenge that bitter 
loss (2-1).  Goals by J. Greenberg and M. Wisnevitz gave the US the win and represent USA in 
Chile hoping to recreate their magic as will many others who represent both teams.

Wish the team good luck for tomorrow by responding to this email address.
