Week 7 – Another undefeated weekend for the Titans

Week 7 – Another undefeated weekend for the Titans

Great rugby weekend!  Here’s the recap:

  • Friday night – 3rd division Men rolled down the highway to face the Airdrie Highlanders on their home turf.  It was a high scoring affair with offense on both sides, but our Titans walked away with the W by a score of 53-25.  Airdrie is continuing to impress in only their second year in the Calgary division!
  • Saturday – HUGE day for Titan’s rugby today, don’t even know where to begin.
    • Kicking things off – The AJRA Minis Provincial Tournament was at Titan’s field, featuring U7/u9/u11 and U13 and U15 girls in action.  Great day of rugby interrupted briefly by some rain and thunder.  Bouncy castles and lots of happy kids!  Thank you to the volunteers that chipped in!  (If anyone has photos send me a link and I’ll update this post.)
      (EDIT: This was an AJRA event not a Titan’s event.)
    • Despite having a youth festival on our home turf, the U13 and U15 boys found themselves traveling to the Saracen’s training facility in Calgary, Inland Athletic park.  There, each team faced off against their Saracens equivalents.  The U13 boys led off with a win 55 – 21, continuing their streak.  The U15 boys followed with quite a match against the hard-nosed Saracens U15 side, but our boys came away with another win, 39 – 22 (features photo Big Nate diving over the try line for a score!)
  • The Titan’s 2nd division men had a long road trip down to Lethbridge to face off against an undefeated Lethbridge 2nd division men’s side.  With several players sidelined due to injury, or otherwise unavailable due to commitments, we knew this would be a tough match, especially on their home turf.  Despite that, Captain H-money Blizz-unit led the troops to a fantastic 26 – 12 win.
  • And back in Red Deer, the Titan’s Elite U18 men and women both faced off in matches against representative sides from the Edmonton Gold U18 squad, great showings by all teams involves and excellent rugby experience for all U18 contenders.

Happy Father’s Day to all those rugby playing/coaching/parenting/etc Dad’s out there!

And that’s everything!  Until next time
