Week 9 – Saturday isn’t the only rugby day!

Week 9 – Saturday isn’t the only rugby day!

Alright, so I’m just going to call this week 9.  Everyone has had a few weeks break from playing rugby, but there was lots going on if you weren’t paying attention.

Anyway, the summary:

  • Wednesday July 8th – Titans U15 travel down to Okotoks for an 8pm semi-final playoff game.  Missing a few key players, and a few boys had to step up and play out of position.  Unfortunately we lost 45 – 22.  It was a hard fought battle.  Okotoks went on to win the City Finals the following Saturday against the Canucks U15, so if you’re going to lose, may as well lose to the best.  Great season U15s!
  • Friday night – Titan Men 3rd division faced off against the Hornets in Calgary.  This game marked the return of U15 Coach Derrek to the lineup after being out for 6 weeks with a calf tear.  And return he did, scoring 3 tries for the Titans on their way to a 20 – 15 win.  Judging by that score, this was not much of a kicking game.  Some pictures from the match.
  • Saturday morning – the U13 Titans Boys travel down to Calgary to face the U13 Hornets.  Our boys have not beaten the Hornets this season, but they were positive and fired up.  It was a back and forth affair, and very suspenseful.  However, the U13 Titans prevailed with a final (official) score of 31 – 29, and with that, our U13s are off to PROVINCIALS on July 18th in Edmonton!

  • At around the same time on Saturday, the Titans Women, now in 2nd division for the remainder of the season, won their game against the Saints 62 – 5!
  • Also in action on Saturday were the Titans U18 Women.  Down by 12 points at the half, they rallied back but ended up losing by a very narrow margin, 12 – 10.
  • Sunday featured some U15 Tryouts at Titans Field – some of our U15 boys looked really good out there!  U15 tryouts continue next Sunday July 19th.
  • And finally, Tuesday (just last night), the Titans 2nd Division men faced the Calgary Saints.  The Saints started strong and actually scored first after a minor lapse in judgement by purple.  However, the Titans defense remained strong, and the offense was sharp as they stormed on to a 62 – 7 finish.  It was a fantastic game to watch!

That should be just about everything for the past week.  This week the club is volunteering at Westerner Days, so there’s no scheduled CRU matches.

TITAN UP!!
