In a double header with WKU, the Tigers took on the Storm Old Boys at Memorial Field, October 13th. Storm consists of players associated with the high school Storm program and several Tiger Old Boys are on the team. We knew that this would be a test for the Tigers due to the experience of the Old Boys. We were banking on our fitness carrying the day.
Well, we guessed correctly. Storm scored 12 points in the first 5 minutes to wake up the Tigers. Once awakened, the Tigers shut down the Storm, preventing another score for the entirety of the match.
Jay MacDonnchadh, club president and the biggest player on the field, used his size, speed and agility to take the first points. Kasra Koleini kicked the conversion and the Tigers were off.
Kas was able to get a try of his own in the corner. Chris Cobb finished the day with a try close to center. Kas took the conversion and the Tigers won the day.
Fitness was key to this win. The more experienced and more talented Storm were not prepared for the speed and agility of the Tiger attack. We need to continue to improve. The Storm will be ready next time.
