Round 2 Wrap UP
What a big day of football! This past weekend was Round 2 of the Gridiron NSW season and we hosted 4 games at David Phillips with all three of our UNSW Raiders Teams back at home.
Our colts and mens teams were facing round 2 opponents Sydney University with the colts kicking off against the Cubs at 12pm and the men playing the Lions for the Foundation Shovel at 7pm. It was a tough day at the office for both the teams. The Colts managed a touchdown by #8 Evander Swann however the men remained scoreless.
This gives the men a season record of 0-2 and the colts 0-1 (note: with the withdrawal of the Northwestern Panthers from the competition the game last week will now be counted as a bye).
FINAL SCORE COLTS – Sydney University Cubs 44 defeated UNSW Raiders 6
FINAL SCORE MEN – Sydney University Lions 38 defeated UNSW Raiders 0
Our women kicked off against the ACT Diamonds at 2pm. The team worked well together with the rookies settling quickly and the vets doing their jobs well. Touchdowns were scored by #43 Renae Hahn and #85 Alia Karmali. This gives them a season record of 2-0. FINAL SCORE WOMEN – UNSW Raiders 14 defeated Diamonds Gridiron 0
