1st Victory under the belt. 11 more to go
The Wolverines ran out 55-7 Victors over the Tampere Saints in an overall one-sided affair. Stats are available at http://www.sajl.org/images/tilastot/vl10004.shtml
Notable performances include JD who ran for 274 yards on 16 carries with 3 TDs and another from a reception. Finnish receivers Sami Kujansuu and Karim Nikkila both put up excellent blocks to spring their RBs for huge gains. On defence Middle Linebacker Kalle DaSilva racked up 4 solo and 11 assisted tackles as well as a forced fumble and a pass breakup.
Congratulations to everyone who played, including the Saints who stuck with the game to the end despite being on the wrong end of a landslide.
Next week we play the Roosters who are coming off an astonishing 21-point fourth quarter comeback against the Crocodiles. We have a week of hard work ahead, but for tonight……. relaxy times.
