Looking Back

The Steel took a hard loss on the road last week, as Red Bulls II made easy work of a young back line for the Steel in  a 4-nil loss.  Here’s a blog report on the match, by our buddy d.F.

Broadcast:  Today’s game on Service Electric CH 50 (busy day for them, too, with three games in the Valley to televise.)

Program:  The program is digital.  Here’s a PDF:  I-Beam- Volume 1, Issue 2

Stadium:  I thought they did a fine job hosting the other week.  Lines are long for concessions, merchandise, and beer during half-time, but at other times it was no problem.  The beers are 12-oz cans poured into plastic cups at price points of $6 domestic, $9 import.  Nothing fancy, but I’m happy they were able to offer it.  They card everyone and the nice lady at the window wouldn’t accept a tip.  There were a couple food trucks on the premises, which is a fine way to augment the standard stadium fare.  I didn’t check them out, but will at a future match, for sure.

 

Links:

We should get a ‘Starting XI” prior to the match; I’ll update if I can.  The Union played in Seattle last night and lost 2-1, which will impact our players available to the Steel side today.  One of the most interesting story lines today is the return of local Salisbury product Jason Yeisley.  Here’s some additional information about today’s match with first-place and undefeated Richmond:

Looking Ahead:

See you out at the pitch, one of these days,

  1. Auf geht’s BSFC!

    Since the theme of this Sunday has to be the continuing Box Office Battles that dominate the headlines here in the Lehigh Valley this weekend, it should be interesting to see just exactly how Bethlehem Steel FC stack up at the gate today.

    IronPigs vs Phantoms vs BSFC …

    • After watching the game today it looked a lot like a typical crowd for a Lehigh Lafayette soccer match or not much more. TV2 filming into the sun does not help the televised action.
