2007 49th Parallel Cup No. 1

Saturday January 20th saw the seventh meeting of American Revolution and the Canadian Northwind in the 49th Parallel Cup, held for the first time in Houston, Texas. This was the first of two games between the two teams in 2007 as both countries prepare for Melbourne 2008. In wet and blustery conditions that could only be described as “perfect Melbourne weather” (for winter at least), the Revolution easily accounted for the Northwind, 4.10 (34) to 1.2 (8).

Opponent: Canadian Northwind
Date: 20 January 2007
Location: Tom Bass Park, Houston, TX
