Friday Night Under the Lights brightened by trains, planes

Success can be measured in many ways. Obviously in most sports events, the team with the winning score has the best direct indication of success. For the Friday Night Under the Lights contests, there were two teams who were able to use that standard to see how their evening went. For the other two teams, some other ways could be utilized to see their progress.

The evening started off under sunny skies and warm temperatures with the U-10 Girls game. Player introductions were made and programs were available as a keepsake for the players and family members. The teal colored Cyclones, coached by Ryan Morlan, struck first in the first quarter with two goals. In the second quarter, the purple clad Hurricanes coached by Allison Smith and Shelbi Reed stiffened their defense to hold the opposition scoreless while taking some shots on goal.

In the third quarter, the Cyclones found their scoring range again with two more goals.

The fourth quarter was another evenly matched segment of the game with the Hurricanes allowing only one more goal while making tremendous strides with their attacks on the net. The game was well played with very few fouls being called, and the fans were thoroughly entertained by the dramatic runs up and down the field.

Before and during the second game of the evening, planes and trains played a role in the night’s schedule of events. Lindy Award Winner, Tom Schoettmer, highlighted the night’s activities with a flyover of the old Shriver Field with his prize winning aircraft. He delighted the crowd with several passes around the playing field. His flight was preceded by a stirring rendition of the national anthem by a member of the U-14 girls team, Emily Lowe.

As with the U-10 game, each and every player was introduced before the game. The fireworks really began with the opening kickoff. As noted in the article before the game, the blue uniformed DC1 Rangers consisted of mostly U-12 boys with some U14 players to provide guidance and leadership. Expertly coached by Patty Hensley, the Rangers struggled fiercely and mightily against their older and more experienced foes, the navy hued Batesville B3 team well led by coaches Rob Wagner and Andy Schutte. For the longest time in the first of the two 30 minute halves, the light blue local team was able to hold off the onslaught, but the Batesville bunch found the net twice in the middle section of the half. One more goal was made late in the half as well to end the scoring at 3-0.
