BBO Update

Apologies to all for the unfortunate postponement of the BBO a bit back - weather looked OK until 8:00 when the rain just exploded in Connecticut. We will reschedule the event for this Friday, November 4th  - same location but since this may be daylight savings time – we may want to start around 10:00 – 10:30 am. If you were scheduled to play and cannot make this date – please let me know.  Also, if you were begging off anyway because of the threat of rain on Friday and now want to re-confirm again – please let me know. Once I know if we have any changes in the number of players – I will be better able to know if we have any openings for any additional players on the 4th.

Any questions, please contact me. Anthony W. Johnson, III Northeast Utilities (860) 665-3858

Worcester Match Report

Grey 62 Worcestor 12
    My guess would be nine tries with 7 converted and a penalty kick as the Grey machine scored 62 points.  Thanks to Beaver, Jay Rubino, Kev Dog, JP, Jon Leone and KO for helping Worcestor out.  Great forward play by Mike Powers,  KO, Bubba, Beaver and James Ackman. Mike Hale, Ben Boutagh, and Nipper distributed great ball from the halfback positions.  Bill Bishop, Charlie Mattison and Phil Lord had some strong runs from the center position. Great to see Kev Dog and Z and back out again contributing to the attack in the backs.  MOTM to James Ackman who played with great pace and scored two tries. Thanks to Dave Fischer for reffing again this week. Next week a competitive match at Long Island. Let Mike or myself know if you can attend. Thanks to Worcestor for playing hard for 60 minutes . Great group with a good attitude.
