Practices for the Week of Oct. 1

Next week the practice schedule will change temporarily. Practices will be as follows:

Monday: 4:00 to 6:00 at Dixon (i.e. normal practice)
Wednesday: 6:00 a.m. to 7:15 a.m. at Dixon
Thursday: 6:00 a.m. to 7:15 a.m. at Dixon

I know that the morning practices are bit of a hardship. However, making sure we are on-time so that we can get in two good training sessions prior to the weekend's game will be important to our continued success.

See you all there.

Bruisers v. Northshore

Sunday, the Bruisers defeated Northshore 42-0 in a physical match on our home pitch. In the opening fifteen minutes of play, the Bruisers found themselves defending within our own 22 until senior Kelly R., with excellent support, broke through Northshore's defensive wall, passing off to Emily who scored the opening try of the game. These were followed by a try by Dana and a try by Elizabeth, converted by Dana as the final minute of the first half clicked by.

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.

Planning Sunday's Match

We play Northshore this coming Sunday at home. Our home field is on the corner of Lilly Rd. and Burliegh at Brookfield Christian School.

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.

Bruisers v. DSHA-B

The Bruisers fought their way to a 10-10 tie against DSHA-B on Saturday morning. The Bruiser's two tries came in the first half. Cari, senior lock, powered over the try line at 12 minutes. Within five minutes, the Bruisers scored a second try, this time from the back line when Val, senior inside center, slipped through the DS-B defense to give the Bruisers a 10 point lead.

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.

Pool B consists of Vernon; Brookfield; Oak Creek; Fond du Lac and DSHA-B. Teams are seated in the pools based on standings from last Fall.

Teams earn 4 points for a win; 2 points for a tie; 1 bonus point for scoring 4 or more tries; and 1 bonus point for losing by less than 7 points. Following the 5 week pool play, teams are slotted into brackets for a 3 week play off, culminating in the state finals on Oct. 28 at Nagawaukee Park in Delafield where all teams will compete for the final state rankings.
