The Vancouver Nighthawks will be closing out their inaugural season in MLU tomorrow night when they host the Seattle Rainmakers at 7 p.m. at Thunderbird Stadium.
The Nighthawks’ season may not have been a great success on the field, as evidenced by their 3-6 record to date, but a first win in four tries against the Rainmakers would set a good tone for next season’s edition of the team.
Mind you, it won’t be easy. The Rainmakers are currently a game behind the San Francisco Dogfish for top spot in the Western Conference standings, and need to win to give themselves a chance to claim top spot in the instance that the Dogfish lose their final match in Portland this weekend.
But even if the Nighthawks don’t win, the game promises to be just as much fun as their previous four home games, probably more. By some miracle this will be the fifth straight home game with good weather, something that’s a great relief for the organizers of the free pre-game Fan Appreciation Street Party being held outside the stadium before the game starting at 4 p.m. You can get more details about that event here.
The Nighthawks are hoping for another big crowd that will clinch the highest average attendance mark in the entire league in spite of their losing record, a tribute ot Vancouver’s ultimate culture and to the great done by those who run the team. Just imagine what a winning season could do next year!
