Old Gold Win against Hartford 44-12

October 1, 2006

For those of you who couldn’t make it, Old Gold beat Hartford today to the tune of 44-12. Old Gold earns five points in the standings, Hartford none. A more detailed writeup will undoubtedly follow, but suffice to say we beat them in pretty much every aspect of play. A truly great win, putting us in very good position to make a push for a playoff spot after the bye week. Thanks to all who showed up and made it happen. I am told that Charles River beat Portland 12-8 (no bonus points). Not sure about any other scores. Hey all, Our esteemed secretary is sans computer as of late and I figured a quick recap was in order for those of you who weren’t able to attend this past saturdays thrashing of the reigning Division 2 chumps, er, i mean champs. Following a solid 5 minute tirade from the elder referee about dirty play and ‘suspended animation’ in lineouts, we got the match going hard and started the scoring early. Scrums were dominated by the OG pack and clean balls were swung out cleanly to the backline by the constantly improving Claudio Debarros at scrumhalf. Following a few bone rattling runs by the Tongan Terribles, Sisi and Masi Kongaika, I was fortunate enough to have an easy try from the 5 meter line. Hartford answered back quickly however and we had a great match on our hands. First half was a back and forth affair, and when halftime came around, OG found themselves up by a hair. 2nd half quickly commenced, subs came in and OG continued the throttling in the pack. Hartfords over dependence on their backs to shoulder the workload, eventually began to show and OG’s backs stepped on the gas and

never looked back. Thumbs up to newcomer Andrew Hamilton who cleanly fielded three great kickoffs, hustled after ball downfield all day and fought off a triangle leg lock from Hartfords #5 on the sideline. I forget who put in all the tries, but all in all, it was a solid match, a match dominated by excellent team play. B-side match was an equally thrilling affair, but with Hartford coming away with a win. Thumbs up here, i believe, go to a hard talking and even harder running Big Andy Carter as he made it his mission to run over Hartfords #5 on ever chance he could. Drink-up was a spacious affair, as Hartford returned immediatley to Connecticut with tails tucked. A-side man of the match: Irish Mike McCleery. Mikey plays an excellent brand of tough rugby and has left a lasting impression on OG. We wish him the best as he returns home to Northern Ireland to pursue a career in engineering. (Although we will see him back for Saranac ’07) If I missed anyone, please chime in. See everyone for poker saturday. JB
