A Final Tune-up Before the Big Game


Thursday, 24 May, 2018

After a busy Wednesday, we laid low for the most part today reading and continuing to wage war on the weeds trying to lay siege to the Villa Skorpion.

Congratulations are in order for our old club in the South of Spain, the Murcia Cobras.

 They are in the Spanish DI
Championship Game on June 2nd for 
the first time in their long history

The undefeated Cobras (10-0) were seeded #1 and play the #2 seeded, two time defending champion and perennial Spanish powerhouse Badalona Dracs (8-0) in the northern coastal city of Gijón.

While the Cobras have had to battle to win their two playoff games against Mallorca Voltors (35-14) and the Las Rozas Black Demons (35-28), the Dracs have been cruising to the title game with easy victories over the Gijón Mariners (78-12) and the Osos Rivas (48-0).

All I can say is . . .

Go Cobras GO!

Meanwhile, back at Skorpion Field . . .

We had a GREAT U13 turnout!

U15 HC Enzo Petrillo going
over a new concept . . .

. . . working the new concept vs. air . . .

. . . and then vs. the U17s in their
weekly scrimmage

Before the Flag practices, we held our best attended U19 practice to date and introduced some WR screen concepts that were well received, no pun intended.

The Senior team practice also was well attended as it was our last one before facing the best team on our schedule, the #3 ranked, 7-0 Busto Arsizio Blue Storms Saturday night on the road.

While the individual effort was good, the team consistency was still a bit lacking.

Nevertheless, we will show up for the 8:30 p.m. kickoff as scheduled.
