Well, this was a lively one. This was definitely a heartbreaker Right up until the middle of the fourth quarter, the Steel were in a perfect position to pull this out.
Unfortunately, this turned out to be a loss. Fortunately, the monster road trip is over and the Steel come home.
Some questions here:
Will the Steel win the battle of 0-8's next week? Will moths have eaten into the Steel's home jerseys? Will Heidi go to her first ever Portland AFL Thunder-Steel game?
I personally am hoping questions one and three are "YES!"
Special thank you to DiamondThief for an awesome preview to get us ready for this one. Thank you to David for giving us the quarter and final score summaries. Thank you to Kasey and Yeseeka for being so active!
All that participation made it a great thread. What is it about a Portland team playing a Los Angeles team that makes those threads so terrific? I think I am understanding the rivalry!
We are fortunate that the Steel and Empire's schedules have not conflicted over the past few weeks. Next week is no different. The Steel come home to face the Tampa Bay Storm this Friday. Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m. The Empire host the Billings Wolves Saturday at 7 p.m. We will be here for both games in one way or another.
DON'T MISS THESE GAMES!
