Still Undefeated, can’t look past this weekend

Monday, September 22, 2014

Grand Rapids Gazelles RFC came away with two wins last Saturday in Kalamazoo. The A-side won their third league match in a row 57-0 against the Kalamazoo Dogs, but are still one game point behind the Tri-City Barbarians. It should be a battle of undefeated teams in two weeks when the Barbarians come to the Gazelles home turf at Highland Park. But first, each team has to battle a cellar dweller, Michigan RFC in GR, and Traverse Bay in Tri-Cities. Can they get to 4-0 before going head to head for first place, and possible home field for the North League playoffs in April?

The B-side also came away with a 41-7 win against Western Michigan’s b-side. Competition is high for starting positions with the amount of players that have been coming to practice. The B-side will also play this Saturday verse Grand Valley.

GR vs Michigan 1pm Saturday, Sept 27 at Highland Park
GR Bside vs GVSU Bside 2:30pm Saturday, Sept 27 at Highland Park

Burgers, Dogs, and Founders All Day IPA at Quinn and Tuite’s Irish Pub after at about 4pm. Come on out and join in the fun!
