Braving the record heat in Washington, DC, DTM Dynamos and GL Pistons took to the soccer field on June 8th, 1999, to fight for the Carnegie soccer dominancy. Armed with sunscreen and gallons of water, the teams ran out to the sun-baked field and engaged in a fierce and wildly entertaining afternoon of soccer.
The DTM team was determined to avenge the losses of the previous year and dominated the game decisively. The DTM defense kept the feared GL offensive machine at bay, forcing the offense to resort to long shots, which the DTM goalkeeper Matt Fouch had no trouble clearing. On the other end, the strength of the GL goal posts were tested time and time again by the DTM forwards eager to get on the score board. Finally, with five minutes left in the game, Ken Chick managed to get a shot past the GL goalkeeper John Straub and put the Dynamos ahead. In the final few minutes, the DTM team decided that in the name of goodwill at the Carnegie campus, the best result for the game would be a tie, and in the last minute of the game, GL forward Yanzhang Ma placed the ball into the DTM net.
When the dust had settled (literally), the DTM Dynamos and GL Pistons emerged from the soccer field with a 1-1 tie.
