Welcome to the NPSL, Sparta!

It was Mother’s Day, and a very cold Mother’s day at that.

This was my first road game, if you could call going to Berkley a road trip.  The night began with a full-body pat down by FC Sparta’s sole security officer.  Our reputation preceded us.  I don’t think he appreciated my giggling.  From what I heard later, he patted down every Northern Guard Supporter, even the children.

A crowd of about 460 were in attendance at this match – four hundred of whom were DCFC supporters that rocked the visiting side of the stadium.  It was a very cold night, with fingers freezing on the camera.

This FC Sparta team came into the league this season, trying to capitalize on what had grown down at Cass.  They were in for a rude awakening when they had little support in the stands and little quality on the pitch.  Le Rouge dominated them.
