The Thunder Bay Chill suffered a 1-0 loss to the St. Louis Lions Sunday night in the first game of a four game road trip. Steven Beattie got the goal late in the game, a 25 yard rocket (the same guy who got the only goal in the last Demize home game).
The Demize have made some recent roster adjustments due to injuries. Andrew Bordellon (Drury University), Stuart Stapleton (Belmont University), and Ryan Trudgian (OCU) have seen their PDL season come to an early end. Roster additions include 3 members from the 2008 squad, including defender Daniel Knop (Memphis University), midfielder Patrick Gritz (W. Illinois) and defender/forward Eishun â€™Aceâ€™ Yoshida (ICC). Details are available on the Demize website.
The Demize have one home game remaining, on Friday July 17th when the Colorado Foxes make their first ever visit to Springfield. It will also be the final game of the season for the Demize. They visit the KC Brass July 9 and Des Moines Menace July 11th as well.
