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.
