This Saturday saw your UTS Gators host the UNSW Raiders at our home field, Neptune Park, Revesby. The women got the action started in a very hard-hitting game. Our women fought their hearts out to the final whistle but just couldn’t withstand the Raiders charge, falling 30 – 0.
Our Colts were up next. Facing a very strong Raider running game, the Gator Defense was up to the challenge keeping their opponents contained for most of the game. The Gators were able to move the ball on the ground and in the air and a late game interception by Blake King set up the winning score for the Gators to remain undefeated.
Finishing off the day, the depleted Division 1 Gators faced the Raiders en mass. Boasting a much larger and healthier squad, the Raiders were able to outlast The Gators with several late game scores being the difference in an otherwise very even match. As with the Gator Women’s result, the final score of 26 – 8 does not accurately show the heart and determination your Gators squad displayed.
Next Saturday, October 1st, the Gators Colts and Division 1 travel up to Creek Reserve, near Newcastle, to face the Central Coast Sharks. The Colts get started at 11:00 am while Division 1 is set for a 3:00 pm kickoff. Make a weekend of it and come on out to cheer your UTS Gators on to VICTORY!
The colts Gators came out firing on all cylinders in Saturday’s match-up against the Nepean Ducks. The Gators were virtually unstoppable on the ground all day but when they needed an aerial strike to get out of trouble, the boys answered in style. A very stout performance by the defense rounded out a great victory by the Gators, defeating the Ducks 36 – 12.
Division 1, still reeling from several injuries suffered last week, fought valiantly against the Ducks but were unable to withstand their healthier opponent, losing 27 – 14.
Next week, the Gators return to our home field, Neptune Park, Revesby, to contest the UNSW Raiders in all 3 divisions. The action kicks off at 1:00 pm with the Women, followed by the Colts at 3:00 pm and culminating with Division 1 at 6:00 pm.
Be sure to come out and cheer on your UTS Gators and enjoy a sausage sizzle and cold drink. There’s a playground for kids too!
Saturday’s comfortable 28-14 win over Sydney University marks the first time in 5 years our boys have triumphed over the Cubs in the G-NSW Colts competition. A dominating performance in the run game put us in the win column.
Our Gator women got off to a slow start in the first half and despite out-playing the Phoenix in the second, they were unable to erase the deficit, losing 20-8 in a good-spirited yet hard fought game.
Division 1 came out guns-a-blazing against the Lions of Sydney University, taking the early lead before the last play of the 1st half which put Sydney Uni up by 3 at half on a hail-mary pass.
Next week sees both the Colts and Division 1 teams take on the Nepean Ducks at our home field, Neptune Park, Revesby, while the Women have a bye.
