Jason Ross, Community Resources Manager; Troy Fennel, Prison Fellowship; Michael Johnson and Hongsup Kim, Media Specialists; and Coach Andrew Scholl with the full support of Warden Patrick Covello came together to play a soccer match on the Facility E Yard.
The Prison Fellowship and the population at Mule Creek played a fast-paced and intense soccer match. In the end, Mule Creek claimed the win with 5-3.
On display was a very positive demonstration of sportsmanship, skill, and teamwork. The population showed that they can come together as a team and conducted themselves in a way that shows positive reinforcement of their rehabilitation.
