Sadly, the Lions couldn’t hold on to the lead and went on to lose to the Des Moines Menace, 2-1. The Lions, who still have players coming in from their colleges, struggled with stringing together passes in the second half. This, and very poor and inconsistent officiating, were too much in the misting rain and on the slick pitch.
The Louligans want to thank the players for their tickets, the Des Moines Menace staff for their friendly hospitality, and the Red Army for their friendly rivalry. We hope to see them again this season!
