Finally. The passing of autumn and winter leads to spring, and the first sighting of our team.
Many of us traveled, gathering at Stardust Lanes in Saginaw before the contest. The weather cooperated, as it appeared spring was going to be skipped. The sun blazed, and the temperature hit 82 degrees. And windy. I was glad I had last year’s sunscreen lotion still in the car.
It was a good tune-up for both the team and supporters. A promising result.
Cyrus Saydee started us off early in the first half:
Then Jeff Adkins scored on a PK in the second half.
The college team and City swapped goals in the last ten minutes, and City took home a 3-1 friendly victory.
