I came across this "Play Soccer" game at the Lake George Historical Association and Museum 290 Canada Street. The "Play Soccer Game" was invented in England. This game on display in the Museum was produced in New York City by the Chester-Pollard Game Company. Prior to being donated to the museum, the game stood outside the Kurosaka's Bazaar located in Lake George Village. The game was donated to the museum by the Kurosaka family.

Sky Blue faced the Portland Torns. Both teams were missing their National Team Members who are getting ready for the start of the FIFA Women's World Cup, which starts on June 7 in France.
Sky Blue was without Carli Lloyd (USA) Kailen Sheridan (Canada) Estelle Johnson (Cameroon) and the Thorns were missing Tobin Heath, Adrianna Franch, Emily Sonnett, Lindsay Horan (USA), Christin Sinclair (Canada) Andressa (Brazil) Caitlin Ford, Ellie Carpenter (Australia)
Portland won the game on a Margaret Purce goal in the 69 minute. Although possession was 51-49 in favor of the Thorns, Sky Blue had difficulty setting up an offense was they were outshot 7-1
One of the nice things about attending a small venue to watch these games, was the entrance of Portland Thorns' Madison Pogarch, who is a Rutgers Student, into her first professional game. Her family was sitting a few rows in front of us. A proud moment

20190420 Sky Blue FC v Houston Dash
Yurcak Field, Rutgers University, Piscataway, NJ
I have not been to a game in a while, so it was nice to get out and see some live action.
Although Sky Blue was the team we were rooting for, it was easy to see that Houston was the stronger team. If it weren't for the exceptional play in goal by Kailen Sheridan, this game could have been a blow-out. The 1-0 score does not give credit to the Dash's efforts.
The passing accuracy of 68% for Sky Blue was evident by soft passes that did not make their intended mark, throughout the game. Sky Blue did have a better second half when they finally challenged the Dash keeper.
The Houston goal was scored by Sofia Huerta.

A nice surprise was the game-day program, which was handed out free to attendees. It was a simple design of a 17x11 folded paper, which when unfolded provides both team lineups and a nice mini-poster of Imani Dorsey, Raquel Rodriguez and Sarah Killion.
