Tide fall flat in road opener

#12 Beau Macaluso, seen here last year against the Sounders, scored TFC's second goal against Spokane.

Tacoma Tide FC took the pitch at Greyhound Park in Post Falls, Idaho, and then promptly hit the turf in a 5-2 drubbing at the feet of the Spokane Spiders.

The club website has some of the grim details. Rory Agu and Beau Macaluso scored the goals for Tacoma.

TFC hope to rebound Sunday at 1:00 PM when they play their home opener against Cascade Surge at Curtis High School field.

Today's Tacoma News Tribune has a feature on the 2008 Tide.

I have a small rant posted over on the forums. Really, when are the Tide going to practice sooner, and against *other* opposition before the season starts? Both Yakima and Spokane were able to get their squads together and do so.
