After practice after practice and even our season-opening games being canceled due to poor air quality, the Seahawks finally got the 2018 season started.
Our smallest Seahawks invaded Foote field with three teams representing our club in the CDMFA 6 on 6 league. All three teams Green, White and Blue played together like pros and were successful in defeating their opponents.
