Nearly 50 spectators made their way out to CFB Shilo on Saturday and saw the Brandon Pizza Express Inspire Football Club come back to tie Scotia United 1-1 in the first Manitoba Major Soccer League Premier Division 2 game ever played in Westman.
Andriy Trokhym scored in the second half for the Inspire (4-1-3), who remain one point up on Scotia United (4-3-2) in the standings.
The Inspire are also on a seven-game unbeaten streak since dropping their season opener.
Player-manager Taso Spiropoulos was happy with the crowd, but thinks more people would have come out if the game had been played in Brandon.
“It was nice to have the families out. We were pretty excited,” he said. “… Having to go out to Shilo with a 25-minute drive discourages a lot of people from coming. If it had been at Optimist or Canada Games Field, we probably would have got double or triple the attendance.”
