Division 1 Remains Undefeated

As the mercury in Sydney rose, so too did the heat on the field at Neptune Park as your UTS Gators Women and Division One teams took to the field.  The Women Gators kicked off the action against the reigning champion UNSW Raiders.  The Gators got off to a great start, leading at halftime, 14-6.  Fighting hard to the final whistle, they just weren’t quite able to come away with the win, eventually going down 14-20 in a nail-biter. Your Gator women will look to avenge their loss in three weeks as they once again face the Raiders at David Phillips Field on October 14th at 2:00pm.

Kicking off under the lights, your UTS Gators Division One team faced a Central Coast Sharks team that has upset them in each of their meetings in the past two seasons.  This year’s Gators are healthier and hungrier than ever and raced off to a 15-0 lead in the first quarter.  Some of the spark faded from the offense, however, and 2 critical mistakes let the Sharks back in the game in the 3rd quarter putting the score at 15-14 heading into the 4th quarter.  A continued monster effort on defense kept the Sharks at bay and a renewed running game put the Gators back in the endzone once more to seal the victory and preserve the unbeaten season.

There will be no games this coming weekend, as Gridiron NSW celebrates the Labour Day long weekend.  Your UTS Gator Colts and Division 1 will be back in action on October 7th for another round of home games at Neptune Park, Revesby.  Be sure to come down and cheer your Gators on to victory!
