The flash is a Vivitar 285HV set on yellow, tripped with a cheap Chinese 
radio slave. It auto-exposes to f/4 @ ISO 200.

Ambient light (sunset) at ISO 200 was f/4 @ 1/5 sec. The lights on the 
field were about 1 - 2 stop above ambient.

I exposed hand-held f/4 @ 1/10 sec, ISO 200. The strobe exposes the 
subject for the aperture used and the shutter speed drops the ambient 
about 1 stop.
