The Cup run has officially begun! The Toronto Nomads put up a plucky defense at times but when we played with focus, speed and determination, the Tranzac lads were outgunned, The final–59-10. Utilize the speed and maintain focus and we could be looking at some good results.
Next up is London on Sat at HOME at 3pm ko Get your butts out there as this is our only HOME match!
Hopefully we will remember the last 2 occasions that we met London in Cup play and lost both times on the same kind of cross-kick action! In other Cup action Lindsay and the Cru both lost Scottish play Peterborough while the Irish play Barrie and Brantford and Creek tangle.

Last Saturday the league schedule came to a close. Beach 2’s seem to be regaining some of our long lost lustre as we easily handled Brantford 49- 24. Now on to the Gee Gage Cup.
Beach 1’s had a slow start but came back with a flourish only to fall short 29-39 to the first place Harlequins. As mentioned earlier a victory would assure us of a 3rd place finish which we did not get. However, we got some help from the Camels of Stoney Creek who defeated Lindsay, dropping them tp 5th and the irish move to 4th. Aurora Barbarians are scheduled to be demoted while Peterborough Pagans are moving up!
Cup Showdown! – Beach 1’s with an 8-6 record take on the Toronto Nomads(7-7) at Fletcher’s on Sat Sept 23 at 3pm. It is now do or die, no diddling around! Break out the Beach gear and plan for the sidelines, we can do this again but we need help from all resources!!!
Gee Gage Cup – It seems that RO is up to its usual tricks of screwing around with this competition again as there seems to be only 2 games to be played and lose U are out??? First match is SUNDAY Oct 01, 1:30 at Fletcher’s!! vs the Scottish. There are games on Sundays as there is a shortage of match officials as RO provides referees for the McCormick Cup and Ont prov University playoffs on Saturdays..I guess the 2’s get the short end of the stick!
Aaron Mittler reports that Lucky Lucy Casino Night was a huge success last Thurs raising some $40K for CF Thanks to all who participated!!!
Beach 2 struggled with some loose defense on the perimeters early on Sat and paid the price later as we were unable to overcome the deficit created. However the lads are beginning to look like Beach 2’s of old which bodes well for the playoffs The loss to the Barbs was 42-36
Beach 1’s however had no such difficulty in scoring early and often with a 63-0 pounding of the Barbs. We must say that the barbs were somewhat depleted as 6-7 players played in Both games. hard to do at this level!. With the victory, Beach1 move into third place in the premier division with a tough match against undefeated Brantford to finish the season looming. Lindsay, 3 pts behind us,play last place Stoney Creek who are tied with the Barbs and need a win to survive! Should be an interesting final weekend of league play.
Despite the yellow tape— we need Beachers in the bleachers!!!

Last games of August – 2 wins and a loss
Given some interesting logistics the Academy 1 players and Beach 2’s actually switched roles for this outing and it proved to be a wise decision. At noon the vaughn Yeomen who are quite strong played our Academy(but really Beach 2’s) and we lost a very close match 27-24. The actual Academy 1 Squadhad a great match and ended their season on a positive note by beating the Markham Irish 2’s
Beach 1’s also continued in a upward trend by handling the Irish 49-24. The negative aspect is a red card for Mark MacSween.
Academy 1 finish the season out of the playoffs but in a respectable 5th spot. Academy2’s finish in 6 position.
It seems that all of my info come from the reprobates in the attachment!!!!
