In the final pre-season friendly before the much-anticipated grudge match against the Michigan Bucks in the US Open Cup, Le Rouge faced the Muskegon Risers. While on the family-friendly side of the pitch, I spoke with a couple who were up from Muskegon to watch the match. They told me that the team was not in any league, but only played friendlies to help boost the local economy.
A good showing for the boys in rouge, as they handled Muskegon with ease. Unfortunately, the same could not be said for my camera. Once again, rain fell upon the pitch, and as I took the photo during the national anthem, the camera shut itself down for the rest of the night.
