Their season will end on June 10. They were playing at Pine Park but he may move the rest of their games to Liberty Park according to Smith.

We congratulate all teams making the finals and look forward to seeing them again next year. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 05/28/2021-6AM-PHOTOS COURTESY OF DAVID GRAHAM)
