Sunday was the first Crustacean Cup, an entertaining, viciously competitive, and frequently hilarious match enjoyed by all! Many thanks to captains Chris Pierucci (Crabs FC) and Laith Tierney (Tyranocrabs) for rounding up their muso mates for this epic battle.
After much falling over and kicking of air, Crabs FC took an early lead and were up 3-1 at half time, before the Tyranocrabs upped the ante and scored two late goals. As MC Peter Barr said, this match has become unexpectedly exciting! The teams played five minutes overtime in both directions, and although Crabs FC pounded about five shots at goal, all were abley saved by the Tyros awesome goalie, Cal Peck.
Who would’ve thought, but the match went to penalities! With Coolio’s Gangsta’s Paradise pumping in the background, five members of each team had snaps on goals, with Crabs FC’s Sam Scherr saving two Tyro shots and securing the match for the boys in orange. Well done fellas!
Below are some snaps pinched from Facebook friends, but keep checking back as WAM’s photographer Lisa Businovski will be sending through her take on the day later tonight.
Thanks to all those who made it down to enjoy the first Crustacean Cup, especially MC Peter Barr and half time entertainer Zack Adams. Foodchain is already looking forward to taking things up a notch next year. Until then, pinch the sky and scuttle onto a soccer pitch in honour of 2010′s victors, Crabs FC.
On Sunday May 23, Perth’s local music community will rally around their favourite players as they prepare for the epic soccer battle that is foodchain’s inaugural Crustacean Cup.
The match runs from 2pm to 4pm at Wellington Square, with a half time performance from musical comedian Zack Adams and commentary from RTRFM’s Peter Barr.
Captain Chris Pierucci (Capital City) has surrounded himself with skilful and enthusiastic players drawn from local bands Eskimo Joe, Red Jezebel, Sugar Army, Split Seconds, Emperors, Russian Winters, Capital City and Boys Boys Boys. His team Crabs FC are pinching the sky in anticipation as the match approaches.
They are set to battle punker prince Laith Tierney (Tyranocorp Management) and his Mighty Tyranocrabs. His rough and tumble comrades play in bands like Cal Peck and the Tramps, Bible Bashers, Mongrel Country, Mile End, Fear of Comedy, Chainsaw Hookers and Injured Ninja and are ready to regain the Tyros rightful place at the top of the food chain.
The Crustacean Cup is a free all-ages event and everyone is welcome. Pack up a picnic and arm yourself with hilarious heckles and silly soccer sledges then stake out a spot on the greens of the west end of Wellington Square.
Wellington Square is located at the east end of Wellington Street and is easily accessed via the free Yellow and Red Cat services. It is a short walk from Claisebrook Train Station, and is also located within the Free Transit Zone, meaning punters can hop on any bus along Wellington Street and take the short trip east for free.
