Working out off season will improve the quality of your play, improve the team as a whole and lead to good habits for healthy living (it's not all about rugby).

7th Place Match 10:30am Oak Creek v. Northshore
5th Place Match 12pm Kettle Moraine v. Brookfield
3rd Place Match 1:30pm TBD
State Championship 3:00pm TBD
All matches will be played at Nagawaukee Park in Delafield.
The final spots depend upon the results of matches (DS v. Muskego and CMH v. Vernon).
We play at Noon on Sunday. All players (and your coach) should be there at 11:00 a.m. to warm-up. Following our match, I encourage all the players to stick around and cheer for your favorite competitor in the final two matches. It should be a great day of rugby. Hopefully the weather will cooperate.
Also, if you volunteered to help-out at the final, please be flexible and simply lend a hand where needed. I do not have additional information yet, but my understanding is that they will need help staffing the concession stand during the day. Even though the finals weekend is hosted by Kettle Moraine, the event is for and by the whole of Wisconsin's girls rugby, so let's try and be as supportive as we can of this first attempt at an organized finals weekend.

How about we do a chili party like we have the last couple of years. If we could get 5 or 6 parents to cook a pot of chili (one vegetarian if
possible), I will cook and bring all the noodles and some condiments
like, peppers, oyster crackers etc. and I will pick up all the drinks
(water, Gatoaid, etc). I will also bring bowls and forks.
So the other things that need to be brought:
Chili - 5 or 6 pots
Condiments like Cheese, Sour Cream, Onions, Etc.
Let me know if I forgot anything.
This sounds like a good idea to me. Please email the list-serv, Steve or me to follow-up on the other items. As always, thank you for everyone's efforts.

"The players really gave everything right until the end. In the World
Cup, courage and team spirit can make a big difference. We played with a lot
"They have been the best team in the world for four years and were favourites"You have to play out of your skin, and that's what happened
for the competition, but we played with a lot of heart and I am very happy
with the players."
Let's get ready for a great weekend of rugby! Go Bruisers.
Tuesday, October 9, 2007
This weekend we play in the state quarter finals against CMH. The game is on Sunday October 14, 2007 at 1:30 at Minooka Park, in Waukesha.
Next weekend our opponent and game time will depend on whether we win or lose this weekend. We will either be playing in the semi-final match against the winner of Vernon v. Northshore or the consolation match against the loser of the match.
All matches on the weekend of the finals will be played at Nagawaukee Park in Delafield on Sunday, October 28, 2007. Our match time will depend upon our results in the next two weeks. The higher our ranking going into the 28th, the later we play on Sunday. Game times will likely range between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.
In the opening minutes of the second half, the lead again changes hands twice with Brookfield scoring a try which was answered by Vernon. Despite the Bruiser's outstanding performance, the final score was 20-36 in favor of Vernon. The Bruisers lived up to their name with outstanding efforts from all the players.
For the record book, Brookfield became the first team to score a bonus point for scoring 4 or more tries as the losing side. It was a well deserved bonus point.
Now it's on to the state Quarterfinals round!

This friday is a black out for East girls. Central has spirit week, but make sure you let everyone know that sunday will be a black out. Also kelly and lucy agreed to make signs and go on announcements so make sure you guys get that done. Beth has signs for East, and Perry and I will take care of announcements at our school. Game is at 1:30 on sunday at Brookfield Christian.
We also need to talk about what we want from the fundraising money. We'll talk more at practice. Sorry it's taking so long to figure things out.
Also after the Vernon game, we'll start talking about sleepovers and what not. Some of us were also talking about doing X-mas stuff this year even though we have off. (Like secret santa)
If you guys have any questions or concerns make sure you email either captains or presidents directly and not through the group, because I know they've been stacking up lately.

Keep up the good work.

However, in the second half, the OC mauled down the field three times, scoring three unanswered tried with two conversions. The Bruisers made several valiant goal line stands to fend off the relentless mauling by Oak Creek, but were unable to keep them from the try line. Late in the second half, the Bruisers bounced back and began to take back control of the game. As time expired, the Bruisers were unable to convert a scrum within 22m of the OC's try-line into a scoring opportunity. The final score was 19-15 in favor of Oak Creek after a very physical and exciting game.

The second half, Brookfield continued to pressure Northshore, retaining possession nearly the entire half, as Brookfield continually applied offensive pressure. The second half saw tries by Elizabeth, Holly, Beth and two tries by Kelly R., making the final score 42-0.
Sunday's game was also the initiation for Mari, our newest rookie, who played wing for the short-sided Northshore team. Mari repeatedly stopped the advance of her teammates on the wing with her aggressive tackling skills, earning her the rookie of the game honors. Player of the game honors were won by Caroline whose strong play at number 8 help keep forward momentum on offense.

Kick-off is at 1:30. Players should be at the field at Noon. In addition to our warm-ups, we will need to move some soccer goals before we play.
This is our first home game, let's try to have a good turn out.
DS struggled to come-back against the pressing defense of the Bruisers but finally punched through a try in the closing minutes of the first half. As the second half rolled on, the Bruisers gave up a final try to the Dashers for a final score of 10-10.
While the score was tied in the end, the Bruisers played a great game, dominating the Dashers in terms of both possession and territorial advantage. Beth, junior wing and Holly, junior flanker, both made dramatic break away runs. Lauren, junior prop and player of the match, made outstanding tackles all around the field.
Saturday was also the initiation of two rookies, Talia at prop and Rachael at scrum half. Rachael earned our rookie of the match prize taking home the much coveted honor of washing jerseys as a reward for a job well done.
We are off to a great start.
