  1. Great pics, as always. Anyone grab a photo of Soumare pre-game?

  2. Better than the Courier post picture of the game

  3. MacMath is a class act. Great moment caught in that picture.

  4. Thank you for the comments, I think it’s great the the players and coaches stay to interact with the fans.

  5. Great shots Paul!
