Ben Sande isn’t done with soccer. The former Colony High School star shows he’s still good with his feet– on a pitch, he knows well, Palmer High School.

“Heard about it, sounded like a good opportunity,” said Sande.

It’s an opportunity he and others couldn’t let pass.

Dozens of players turned out at Machetanz Field on this cool summer night, for a shot at history. They hope to be part of the new Alaska City Football Club.


Tacoma Narrows FC splashes on to soccer scene

TACOMA, WA—Tacoma Narrows FC (Facebook) has revealed their name and crest (designed by Stephen Lloyd) as a new elite adult men’s soccer club rises to the surface in greater Tacoma. The club, which has competed under the name “All-Star Moving” (Puyallup) in the Greater Seattle Soccer League, has designs on going regional.


“TNFC is coming from a large group of players that have played high level and college soccer and have limited choices to continue playing competitive men’s soccer as an adults,” says player and founder Preston McDonald. “Down south there are only rec leagues and coed leagues, so I’m forming this team to give good soccer players a chance to play at the highest level! We believe in the game and playing it at the most honest, true form possible. This plus our hard work will take us to the level we want to be at!”
