Good First Outing
So we went out and met with the Central City Demons… It was a great game that came down to one or two plays that made all of the difference. The end score was 24 to 14, in favor of the bad guys. The two plays which made a difference were a questionable punt recovery that should have been ours. The ball was punted and the returner muffed the catch and we recovered, BUT under Canadian Rules, the ball must travel 10 yards past the line of scrimmage, which we all thought it did, but apparently the refs though otherwise. And then the last play of the game that was a breakaway run that cost us the extra TD. All in all though, the boys played well and it was a great day. Everyone had fun and one of our red head kids, known as G2 (Ginger 2), was ripping off yards on runs like I’ve never seen before. Everyone did great and a good time was had by all, but in the end, it was those two plays that cost us the game… But those are familiarity and mental issues as opposed to major issues… This is all stuff we can work with and tighten up.
We had our practice and it was a good one last night and I think we got the issues ironed out. It’s a short week because of the game on Monday, and our next game is on Saturday at 12. More to come as we move forward. We play the New Southern Hurricanes, it’ll be a great game!
