PDL: Thunder Bay Chill Shut Out Springfield Demize

The News-Leaders offers details on Friday’s game, a 5-0 win for the visitors who are now dreaming about the playoffs. Tonights game against the Division-leading St Louis Lions will answer those questions for the Chill.

There’s also a nice story from the Thunder Bay Chronicle Journal on the teams defensive prowess. Interesting to note the Chill goalkeeper, Stephen Paterson, is from Western Illinois – his coach this past season is current Demize Owner/Coach (and losing goalkeeper last night) Armen Tonianse. mayfair dubai escorts

PDL: Springfield Demize Host Chill Tonight

The PDL season is rapidly winding down. Our local boys have two home games remaining, including a chance for revenge this evening against the Thunder Bay Chill.

You may recall that the Chill put the Demize on ice during a two day road trip earlier this month. Now it’s their turn to make the 15 hour drive and play on the road and I’m certain the Demize have been preparing to be ungracious hosts, at least on the pitch.

Game time is 7:30 pm tonight, at Cooper Soccer Complex at Lake Country Soccer.

I’m still in St Louis, visiting my parents, so if there are any budding sports writers out there interested in providing a game report for this site, send it my way and see what kind of action you can get at the clubs afterwards when you tell them you write for SGFsoccer.com!lebanese escort in dubai

MLS on ESPN2 Tonight – DC United vs Rapids

KC Wizards Starting 11 You can get your MLS fix tonight at 6:00 pm on ESPN2 as DC United host the Colorado Rapids.

DC United visit the Kansas City Wizards on Wednesday July 4th for a 12:00 noon home game in Arrowhead Stadium. I’m planning on driving up for the game that day and returning after the game. Should put me back in Springfield by 6 pm which is plenty of time to BBQ and then take in any fireworks that evening. Anyone who’s interested in joining me for the day, let’s get a carpool/caravan going. Contact me. And no, it’s not just because the Wizards have named their Starting 11 (pictured). I hope to have some time to chat with Jack Jewsbury after the game, before the drive home.

Speaking of Jackie, be certain to take a minute to check out his goal from the Columbus Crew game.massage sex in dubai
