Week 3 – Mixed results but overall great rugby weekend!

Week 3 – Mixed results but overall great rugby weekend!

Here’s the rundown from the weekend:

  • Friday night saw the Titan’s Men 3rd division side, bolstered with a handful  of reinforcements, travel to the Calgary Irish for a tough match up.  We ended up losing 27-17, but there were many positives from the game including a solid comeback in the second half that really had the Irish on their heels.  Standout performances from many new  folks to the club.  Morgan, how’s the jaw?

Saturday of course is rugby day!

  • The U13  Titan’s Girls were in action yesterday at the CRP….picture here!
  • The U13 boys kicked things off in Red Deer against the Okotoks Lions and won yet another stormer, unofficial score 71 – 0.  Now, this was technically a forfeit as the U13 Okotoks side didn’t have 15 dressed players per CRU regulations, however some Titans happily volunteered to don the Lions’ red jerseys and they played anyway!  Our U13 boys are on a roll, and an absolute pleasure to watch.  They are developing very well! (Image above is the U13 boys shaking hands.)
  • The U15 boys, despite a solid showing against the Okotoks Lions, lost the decision 37- 7.  Despite  the loss, there were positive takeaways  from the game, and the coaching staff are extremely proud of our boys! Pictures!!
  • The Titan’s Women 1st division faced off against a strong Rams team, and ended up losing a tough one by a score of 31 – 10.  Photos from the women’s game.
  • Rounding out the day, the Titan’s Men 2nd division faced off against the Hornets, which is always a challenge.  Despite a few points were the Hornets pressed extremely hard, our men brought home the win 50 – 15.  Photos from the Hornets match-up.

Thanks to all those who turned out this weekend for another great set of rugby days, and a big pat on the back to those that pulled double duty and played games both Friday and Saturday night.  More home games coming, so let’s turn out to training and work on the things that need working on.

EDIT:  Winston and Charles’ take on Zed 98.9 FM Red Deer.

TITAN UP!
