Fall 07 Season Opener
Wolfhounds opened up the Fall 2007 season with mixed results. The entire club marched this past weekend, with three (3) teams on the road, it was probably too much to expect great results, however, what was achieved does give the club a lot of hope going forward.
The Super League 15 went to NYAC RFC in New York and set the record straight about our performance in the Premier League in the Spring. A 25 to 6 win over the Super League giants indicates that the Wolfhounds are able to play with the big boys and gives hope to the next Super League season in 2008.
Our Div I side which played Div III last season, and who are the reigning DIV III champions, travelled to New Haven in CT. New Haven are one of the few teams to seriously challenge the Wolfhounds in competition over the past few years, the other CT team the CT Yankees, play the Wolfhounds this coming week for what promises to be a very tough game. In any event, the Hounds went to New Haven testing a new Div I team. With many new faces it might have been too much to expect a victory. New Haven are a polished team with new faces also evident. Despite this, the home side showed why they are a potential Div I contender, displaying many polished plays and a high level of fitness also evident. Not withstanding, the Wolfhounds did put up a great fight. Scores by Mike Liberatore and Dave Jones kept the Wolfhounds in contention, however New Haven were the better team on the day. Final score was 12 to 45 in New Havens favor.
Weather on the day was quite hot in the upper 80‘s and high humidity, with a stiff breeze helping and hindering both sides.
The B side game went the opposite direction for New Haven, with the Wolfhounds winning 12 - 0.
The new Div III side, went to New London CT and were pipped at the post, losing 13 to 10.
