Under threatening skies, the rain held off this Saturday at Pennant Hills Hockey Centre as the Gator Men returned to the win column and the Colts were out-matched by the league-leading Seahawks.
The Division 1 Gators opened the day with a gritty effort against the winless Newcastle Cobras. The Cobras tested the battle-weary Gators with a high level of enthusiasm. Had the Cobras spent more energy on executing their plays, rather than baiting the Gators into fights, the game may very well have been closer but the Gators kept their cool to secure the 30 – 14 victory. The Gators have a week off before they return to Neptune Park
on November 21st to take on the #3 ranked Northwestern Predators.
The Gators faced off against the unbeaten Sutherland Seahawks but were simply no match for their size and speed. Our boys put in a great effort and despite the lopsided score of 46 – 0, the Gators never gave up and fought to the end. The Gators will once again face the Seahawks next week at Slade Park
with a 5:00pm kickoff.
The Gator Women were idle this week and they look to bounce back after last week’s loss. The Gators are currently in 2nd place with a record of 3 – 2. Next week, the Gators face the #3 ranked Newcastle Cobras at Slade Park
. Kickoff at 12:00pm.
Head up the coast to Slade Park
this Saturday, November 14th, to cheer on your UTS Gators!
Under the blistering sun, all three Gator teams beat the heat and their opponents this Saturday at Pennant Hills Hockey Centre.
The Colts Gators opened the proceedings with a commanding effort as they steam-rolled the Wollongong Brumbies 50 – 18. The win brings the Gators back to an even record of 2 – 2 following last week’s 36 – 0 loss to the 2nd place Sydney University Cubs. The Gators have a week off before they return to Pennant Hills
to take on the #1 ranked Sutherland Seahawks.
The Gator Men looked to continue the winning ways established by the Colts as they faced the Wollongong Mustangs. After a strong start which saw the Gators up by 12 in the 1st quarter, the Gators let the Mustangs back in the game. With the score tied at 24 – 24 in the 3rd quarter, UTS mustered their will, putting together two late scoring drives to seal the victory 38 – 24. The late surge will go a long way in rebuilding the Gators confidence following their 41 – 0 loss to Sydney University last week. Next week sees the Gator Men face #5 UNSW Raiders as they return to Neptune Park
for a 7:00pm kickoff.
The Gator Women followed up their last game with another dominant performance against the Northwestern Phoenix to win 28 – 14. The victory keeps the Gators solidly in 2nd place with a record of 3 – 1. Next week, the Gators will look to avenge their early season loss to the league leading UNSW Raiders at Neptune Park
. Kickoff at 3:00pm.

Under sunny skies, the UTS Gridiron Club hosted its first true home games of the 2015 season at Neptune Park in Revesby.
The Gator Women opened the action in dominant fashion, demolishing the Newcastle Cobras 36 – 0 in a very physical contest that saw several players suffer severe injuries on both teams. The win moves the Gators to 2nd place with a 2 – 1 record.
The Colts Gators faced the Western Sydney Pirates in what was undoubtedly the game of the day. The Gators fought tooth and nail with the Pirates for the entire match, falling just short at the final whistle 6 – 8. It was a disappointing result after a fantastic fight by our boys and drops them to 3rd in the standings with a record of 1 – 1.
The Gator Men came out strong against the Western Sydney Pirates with a solid offensive drive to open the game but were unable to turn it into points. The Pirates, however fought back and following a string of injuries to several stand-out Gators, Western Sydney took control of the game, handing the Gators their first loss of the season, dropping to 3 – 1 but maintaining 4th place in the standings.
All three UTS Gators teams have come away with wins in their respective season openers.
The Gators Division One team took to the field first against the Nepean Ducks and thanks to a solid effort by the defense, secured the win 32 – 0.
The Gators Colts were next, facing the Northwestern Panthers. The Gators out-muscled the Panthers to the tune of 26 points to zero.
And finally, the women Gators started their State Championship defense in strong form, downing the Northwestern Phoenix 26 – 16.
Be sure to rally behind the Gators Division One team as they take on the Northern Sydney Rebels next week at 11:00am, at The Square. The women and colts teams both have byes.
