Congratulations to the Killer-Bs

The B-side provided the Club with a thrilling win this past Sunday when it defeated Muskego 17-12. The B-side held a slim, 2-point lead for most of the first half, thanks to the conversion kick by Tristan. The game was a defensive battle, as the B-side played strong defense, deep within its own 22-m line, repeatedly warding off the Muskego attacks. The game came down to the final minutes, when Kassie, playing fullback, made a game saving tackle to stop the 50 meter break away run by Muskego. The team reorganized a counter offensive and pushed down the field in the closing thirty seconds of the game to prevent Musekgo from touching down the tyring try.

It was some very exciting rugby. Our B-side is on a winning streak! I should point out that the B-side lost to both Fond du Lac and Muskego at the start of the season. In the past 2 outings, the B-side have reversed both these losses! Way to go!

B-Side Game: Sunday May 18

WHERE: Muskego
WHEN: 1:15 p.m. kick-off (Be there at NOON)
WHO: Muskego-B v. Brookfield B. If you are an A-side player, you should still attend the match because (1) let's support our B-side and (2) you never know what subs we will need!

DIRECTION: Take Moorland past Janesville Rd. going south. You will come to a four way stop (stop signs, this intersection is Woods and Moorland/Durham), continue south through the stop and about a half mile down on your left will be McShane Dr. Take a left here and the pitch will be on your right hand/south side about a half mile down the road.

See you there.

Finally! Some pictures from our trip to mud-pit Iowa. Here's our team before we played our game in the mud pit.

This is the actual core of the mud pit where we attempted to scrum. Key word: attempted.

Our team after the coldest, dirtiest game of my life!

Huddle anyone? Guess not.

Enjoying the freezing cold mud I guess?
It was all good times this spring season. Whether it was in the mud pit or on the good field, we Bruisers held our own.

Sunday's Game...

Date: Sunday, May 11, 2008
Time: Kick-off at 1:00 p.m. (be there at Noon ready to warm-up)
Place: Nagawaukee Park
Opponent: Brookfield A vs. KM-A; Brookfield-B vs. KM-B/FDL

Directions: Take I-94 West to Hwy. 83 exit in Delafield. Take Hwy. 83 North about 1/2 mile (i.e. until you pass all the shopping centers). Nagawaukee Park is on the left (west) side of the road. You can see the goal posts from Hwy. 83.

Please note that Nagawaukee is a county park, so you will need to pay a per car entry fee if you don't have a county parks sticker.

This is just a suggestions, but if you are planning on playing rugby in the fall, I would recommend buying a county park sticker, as 2 of our opponents (KM and CMH) have home fields located on county park grounds and play-off games in the Fall are again likely to be played at Waukesha County parks. Therefore, you can anticipate paying this fee 3-5 times per year, which will make a sticker more cost effective.
