(Newburyport MA) I took in my first football game at Newburyport’s refurbished stadium on a pleasant Friday night of Cape Ann League action.

Wow!  That place is terrific.  Turf is wonderful.

Great crowd saw plenty of back-and-forth action.

In the second half, Triton (5-0) shifted into a level of offense that the Clippers (2-3) couldn’t cope with.

I found the lighting to be very good for action shots.  Guessing where the action is going to happen is a significant part of shooting sports.  Sometimes you get it right.  Other times you don’t.
