Rocky Mountain Roundup 2016/17 - Week 2

Blizzard and Bighorns Play Top of the Rockies

 

1/18/17 – Week 2 witnessed the power of a Blizzard in any Arena and what can happen when Freedom butts’ heads with some Bighorns.

Arena FC had their shot at revenge after falling narrowly in the final 45 seconds against the Colorado Blizzard.  Unfortunately, it was a different tale this this past Saturday as the Colorado Blizzard showed their comfort in their old home dismantling Arena FC 10-2. Sunday was a miniature to the delight of the Rocky Mountain Bighorns who managed to hold on for the win after taking the 1st half 8 to 4, a 2nd half surge saw Freedom FC outscored their hosts 5 to 2; leaving the final 10-9.

This weekend boasts a grudge match with Freedom FC hosting the Rocky Mountain Bighorns at the WECMRD Fieldhouse in Edwards, CO at 1:00PM on Saturday.  Then the Golden Strikers return to action with a road trip to Colorado Springs to see the division-leading Colorado Blizzard at the Soccer Haus Sports Arena; kickoff 7:00PM.
