On Sunday, a flag football tournament attracted UnioNCounty Football players (past and present) for a great afternoon of friendship, competition and community. The 3rd annual Score 1 for Spencer flag football tournament held at Noel Williams Park in Monroe proved once again that sports, in this case football, can be a vehicle for such a […]
