Dockers Challenge Roosters, Power in Des Moines Tournament

The Cincinnati Dockers Australian Rules Football Team continues their 2012 season when they hit the road on Saturday May 19th for a three-team tournament featuring the Kansas City Power and the host Des Moines Roosters. The tournament will take place, according to the Roosters’ website, at Stillwell Junior High School at 1601 Vine Street in Des Moines, with Cincinnati’s first game, against the Power, scheduled to start at 1 PM local time, followed by their match against the host Roosters at 2 PM.
