Our Match Report
The Reds put up a hard fought first half, limiting Providence's ability to form any type of attack. Though they had put one up early, North Shore answered quickly scoring off the following kick off and another only a few phases later by Timmy and Sweet Lou.
The boys did not back down as fatigue started to set in and kept their tackles where they needed to be. Our Man of the Match CJ laid down the law with his monster hits but also, as a surprise to Providence, ran down their wing to prevent a try from 50 meters out.
Continuing the good hits, Ness spared no-one with driving tackles and unfortunately got a questionable yellow just at the end of the half, putting the Reds a man down for the start of the second. Providence, being a DII candidate, was ready to capitalize on the man down but the Reds held them to only one try.
Following our new game strategy seemed like it was tried and true thanks to Justin's beautiful kicks into touch for position. Also, his in play kicks took advantage of the Providence backfield being out of position and allowed for Timmy, Ness, and Tommy Macrae to take those further down the field.
All in all, it was a hard fought match but the trend at practice still holds: we have no friends so fitness needs to be better. Other errors the Reds made are fixable and will be addressed when they get back to work on Tuesday at practice.
Final Score: L 13-21
