United Game Review by: Lucas Elbin – Pictures by: Destiny Fernandez

FC Denver United went into Sunday’s game at Broomfield Commons eager for some competition in the second division of the CASL. After two weeks of domination, Sefton FC looked to be a potentially worthy opponent. However, this was not the case as it became clear about ten minutes prior to game time that Sefton was going to be short players. Just as gametime arrived, so did a few more Sefton players, and FC Denver United had a game to play.

Sefton FC was short handed the entire match. The United squad was eager to be tested, and the dissapointment in match quality seemed to effect the game Sunday. This led to some sloppy and lackadaisical moments around the goal for United. With plenty of opportunities abound, FC Denver did manage to net five goals. Vince Stewart led the way with two excellent goals. His energy and aggressive play stood out in an otherwise lackluster game.

This coming Sunday United will be off due to a bye week in the CASL schedule. The season will really get rolling in two weeks when they face Denver University’s club team. DU is undefeated and looked dominant so far this spring. This will be the first test of the season for the talented FC Denver squad.

Man of the Match: Vince Stewart

Scored 2 goals for United. His energy and enthusiasm carried the team.
