Tacoma Tide FC welcomed players and fans from local military bases to Curtis High School for a 'friendly' on Tuesday night June 17th. TFC scored early and late to produce a 7-1 victory over the guys from McChord and Fort Lewis.

It was a sunny but slightly windy night and the Tide wore yellow with blue shorts for the first time ever at home. Club mascot "Surf Dude" waved his new club flag (appropriately made out of a yellow and white-striped beach towel).

The Military guys have some game, but the Tide were too fit, fast and skilled for them to keep up with. Still, it was nice to get out for soccer on a Tuesday night in Tacoma and to meet some of the soccer fans connected with players on the Military team.

Tacoma hosts Spokane this Friday June 20 at 7:05 PM in their next league contest.
