: : SEASON UPDATE : :
Since we are a few games into the season we figured we'd give everyone a little update as to how our club is doing!
Men's Club: With a couple close games to start off the season, the Old Dogs went to San Jose this past weekend and pulled out a 2 point win over the Seahawks. With some new guys added to the mix, the men are building their team chemistry and are looking to fit everything together when they take on Diablo this Saturday - probably at 1:00 at Al Patch park - if its too rainy the game will be at VCS!
H.S. Boys: With a couple losses and a good friendly match against De La Salle the boys team has been improving week to week, despite our really awesome practice facilities :) Their game last Friday night was in the pouring rain for the duration of the 70 minutes. It was a tough loss, but the boys are looking to bounce back this Friday against Sierra up at Lincoln High School at 7:30pm!
H.S. Girls: The girls started off with a round robin with Mother Lode and Sierra/River City. It was a really great learning experience for our Rookies to get some playing time. We opened up league play against the Amazons (who are nationally ranked) the girls took a beating but surprised themselves and the Amazons with some great hits and big offensive runs. Last week they pulled away in the second half with a great win versus Chico. The ladies look to build upon last weekends success this Saturday against Solo at VCS.
Every week each team is doing what they can to improve and prepare themselves for the upcoming weekend. It hasn't been an easy season, but everyone is sticking together as a team and doing the best with what we have! Any and all new players interested in rugby is encouraged to come out, it is never to late to join!!
Thank you to everyone who has been helping us out, we appreciate it!
