May 11, 2011 - Captains Report
Our intrepid Senator heroes made it to Peterborough (oh look the locks!) on Saturday to play the Krocs.
The big news was that on our first game of the year we had a full squad. The game started out with the krocs bearing down hard but the Sens held them to only 1 try in the first quarter. However the pressure continued from a very well rounded squad that had good speed and second phase and by the end of the third quarter we were down 4-0. But in true Senator spirit we picked up some offense with some excellent second phase across the field twice before springing Dave who ran, chipped and grubbed his way to a try. Peterborough got another to finish it at 5-1.
Some good showings, notably by newcomer Eric who had some nice runs , Ashley for doing a good fill-in at hooker, Jim for some nice defensive plays and Nate in relief at Stand-off for a recently ill Warren. Dave received the man of the match from Peterborough who also showed us pictures of their new clubhouse which we may see in the fall.
Thanks again to all that came; Bill, Ash, Rick, Richard (performed well in first game in 20+ years), Dermot, Bill H, Lindsey, Dan, John, Scott, Nathan, Jim, Gerry, Eric, Tim, Dave.
