One 'Play' was Enough for the Blizzard to 'Down' Football Club Denver

Most of the Blizzard team showed up early enough to be able to sit in the Westminster Sports Center and watch the Denver Bronco game. Coach Wells was hoping for a Bronco win not because he is a Bronco fan but because several of his players are Bronco fans and them winning would help put them into a good frame of mind for their game. Only seeing FC Denver once this season on the schedule made this game even more important in the standings as last year the Blizzard were able to hold off FC Denver by giving them 2 loses so this was a very important game for the Blizzard to maintain control of the Rocky Mountain Division. 

Coach Wells, " We came here tonight expecting a physical game and FC Denver did not disappoint, their size and outdoor physicality always causes problems for any team especially on their Home field. Their size alone and style of play is difficult to prepare for so we tried to keep the ball moving and wear them down having to chase the ball. We allowed them back into the match when we tried to slow the game down which is something I'd rather not do, this is Indoor Soccer and I want the pace to be high the entire 60 minutes. We will be addressing that this week in training. Overall a great win on the road in a very tuff facility to play in against a good team in FC Denver. We hope to see everyone out this weekend at our next Home game on Saturday for a 7:40pm kickoff against our rivals from the North the Denver Dynamite."

The Colorado Blizzard wish to extend our thoughts and prayers to the Denver Dynamite Player Ryan Truxal who sustained a serious ankle injury during last Saturday nights match against the Bighorns. Coach Wells and several Blizzard Players were in attendance when it happened. We wish him a very speedy recovery.
