Over the weekend the ESRFC took home their second win against the West side godless heathens in a local derby that saw the Green Horde put up 41 big points on the visiting team. The first half wasn’t a spectacular showing from the ESRFC’s A side but they managed to come out of the initial 40 with a lead. After the break, the match was in the balance – that is until Dave Dragunas ran through the middle of the defensive line early in the second half and put in a five-pointer right under the posts. Dragunas had an additional try on the day as well. Tries by Roneil Reynolds, Zach Webb and Michael Travis, his first since transferring over from the Utica Mud Boggers. Nick Viviani’s foot was flawless on converting the team’s five tries, and he added two successful penalties to his ledger before the day was done.
The Green Horde’s B side suffered a close loss to the heathens’ second side. Long time club members Drew Roberts, Mark Derrickson, Tom Boyle and Randy Viviani brushed off their boots and played alongside some of the club’s young active members.
This weekend the Green Horde takes on a traveling Kent State, who are hoping to stay sharp in preparation for their trip to playoffs. This match is set in place of Michiana’s forfeited match. After that the team travels down to Dayton to close out the Fall season.
Kickoff against Kent is this Saturday at 1:00pm at the Metro Parks Pitch.
See you at the pitch.
