Gamblers win the Clark Cup

Congratulations to the Green Bay Gamblers on defeating the Fargo Force in five games for the Clark Cup championship.  Green Bay proved to be resilient as they never gave up in any of the games and they earned the Clark Cup winning game five by a score of 5-3.

This one hurts for Fargo Force players and fans but the franchise is still young and will have plenty of chances to win the Clark Cup in the years to come.  With the coaching staff led by Steve Johnson and the winning tradition set in stone by both Dean Blais in the inaugural season and continued by Johnson this season, the Force have a tradition to build around, and with the Urban Plains Center as our stomping ground, the Clark Cup will be ours sooner rather than later in Fargo.

Good luck to all of the Force players that will move on to junior and professional ranks.  Thanks to all of the Fargo Force players that made this one fun season to watch.  A big thank you to all of the Force players that helped make this blog somewhat worth coming to and thanks to the Force staff for letting me blog at the games this year.  Thanks to Tyler and for giving us fans a place to grumble to each other before and after games.  Thanks to the drummer boys and chaos corners for making the Urban Plains Center a more intimidating place to play for opponents and more fun place to go to a game for fans.  Hope to see even more fans at the games next year!

...and thanks to all of you fans that came to the blog during the season!  Without you, this is really boring!

This is not the end of the blog for the year, we have the USHL drafts coming up next week and tryouts will start quickly thereafter so there will be plenty of Force news/information to pass along to Force fans.  If I am able, I will try to do live blogs for tryouts and exhibition games but that all depends on when/where they hold tryouts and when/where the exhibition games will be held.  We'll probably start soon by thinking about who may be here next year...since that is now what we have to look forward to.

Great season Force!
