Not even the rain could put out the Portage Blaze during Saturday's action at the Central Plains Cup. The Blaze kicked their way to two wins, outscoring their opponents 9-0.

In their first match-up, the Blaze played a possession-oriented game because of the weather conditions.

"Our game plan was to maintain ball possession," said head coach, Bryan Mintenko. "It was tough to run against the wind and the rain was coming down hard."

When the final whistle blew, the Blaze had a 5-0 win under their belts. With a strong start, Saturday looked promising for the team - despite the poor weather conditions.
