First Half Summary

The lineup was announced about 40 minutes before the match began, and all 11 players remained out because of the league's health protocol. It would be an uphill battle for our Boys in Blue, but what an opportunity for our youth and bench to prove their value today.


Huge credit to the fans today. Subaru Park was LOUD. The players on the field deserved it.
