Premier Park #1, Blach Springs, TX
6.5 inches of rain have been dumped on the DFW this month, forcing the kick-off of FCDTN's Spring 2018 season of the North Texas Premier League to start on March 4th (weather permitting). They will face off against Terrell FC at Premier Park #2 in Balch Springs, TX at 1:00PM.
"It's been strange, actually." club president, Carlos Olate told fcdentonsoccer.com. "The weather is crap-tacular during the week, forcing the league to cancel the games the Saturday before the game, and then (on game day) it's gorgeous outside! The last two weeks have gone from a week of rain, storms, possible hail, wind, cold temperatures; to a beautiful Sunday. Texas weather...what ya gonna do? We understand that the games had to be cancelled, though. Otherwise, we'd be playing on choppier and more dangerous fields later on; when it gets hot and dry. We've been working hard for the last year to get to this level of the NTPSL; one more week won't hurt!"
Head Coach Roberto Gallegos is welcoming the extra time given to prepare for his second season at the helm of FC Denton, as he looks to build on the success of last season's impressive regular season run.
"There's been a definite change in mentality and work rate that we're seeing from the guys this preseason, especially knowing that we're going to be competing in the UPSL this fall, and I definitely wouldn't mind another week of that! After living in Texas for so long, you kind of have to expect this random weather and just roll with it. Just gives us more time to prepare so we can get this season started on the right foot."
FC Denton will kick off their Spring 2018 NTPSL season, March 4, 2018 (weather permitting) against Terrell FC, 1:00PM at Premier Park #2 in Balch Springs,TX.
