Juan Hernandez scored for the Jr. Billikens in the seventh minute Friday evening as they opened their season in a light rain. By halftime, with the score still 1-0, thunderstorms halted the game against the Glendale Falcons and it would be two hours before the teams returned to the pitch to continue the match.

The Falcon’s tied the game early in the second half but the Jr. Billikens got a second from Hernandez around the 70th minute and an insurance goal by Charles Neuwirth to seal the win in the opener.
Neuwirth plays in the 10 position and is the team’s engine. He’s joined by fellow senior Ethan Joly in wearing the Captains armband. Joly is a center back.
I’ll add the starting lineup and some photo links soon.
