Thank you for showing up this past weekend and celebrating the club’s first ever Club Day. It was a resounding success. Big shout outs to Rosie and the Rugby section for making sure everyone had a great Saturday
The Beach TRU II’s took to the field with a mix of new talent and a few Beach veterans such as Claude Germain, Chris Hewitt, and Nick (The Knife) Macaan. Bay Street started of strong running in three try’s in the first half to make the score 17-0 at half time. Rallying back in the second have the TRU’s put in 22 unanswered points with the winning try being scored by Evan Dermott on the wing in his second ever game of rugby. Final score 22-17 for Beach
In a similar story to the TRU II’s Baystreet got out to an early lead. Strengthened in the centers by the return of last year’s captain Malency Wainwright the boys battled back culminating with a try on the final whistle in the corner to tie the game 32-32. Unfortunately out kick to win the game missed the uprights by a matter of inches, so this one ends in a tie.
A similar theme for the day put the Scottish up first and Beach battling back. Powered on by the return of Cory Applton to his familiar jersey of 8 for the II’s Beach was able to work our way back, sealing the deal in the last play of the game when a dropped ball in the Scottish endzone led to a final beach score to end the game. Final Score Beach 22-Scottish 14
For a second week in a row the Beach I’s were defeated. A very strong Scottish team came out swinging. Beach matched the Scottish with a stern defense. The Scottish never broke our defensive line, or got around our defensive edge, but penalty after penalty led to the Scottish able to kick into our 22, and maul/scrum their way into our endzone. Lots to work on as we regroup and go on to play the Irish, in Markham next weekend.
