It was about half an hours drive east from the basketball, so plenty of time to eat before the match although the refreshments in the stadium looked ok.
Memphis looked like they had turned the tie round when they went 3-1 up on the night, but Little Rock had the advantage of the tie being decided by the ‘away goals rule’ so only needed to be a goal down to win the cup. In the end they won overall anyway. The crowd count here was so much more realistic than on Friday. Only 50 more than I had estimated.
After the match, which finished off my little 5 match tour, I drove back into Arkansas and stopped overnight just west of Little Rock. At least it would only be 300 miles home from here.
