Pelicans Repeat as Philly 10s Champs
It was a great weekend of rugby for Philly-Whitemarsh players. The Pelicans repeated as Philadelphia 10s champions with a 31-7 win over the BadCats at Academy Sabres Fields.
An impressive win for the boys in securing back-to-back championships at the 2015 Philly 10s. New player Isaac Katz was named Man of the Tournament, while John Knab was named Goose of the Day for screwing up the jersey orders :)
Philly Fight Fights to Win
Chunk and Mike Kelly played excellent for the Philly Fight in their playoff win (spectated by a few PW guys as well). After beating NOVA 60-12 on Saturday the Fight will take on the Boston 13s in the USARL Northern Conference Final on August 15 in Rugby League action at Garthwaite Stadium in Conshohocken.
Exiles Strong in Iowa
While PW players were tearing it up in Philly, OT and Ben were playing with the Schuylkill River Exiles at the National Club 7s in Iowa. Skill made it to the plate finals where they fell to Old Blue, finishing a respectable 6th in a field of great teams. (Seattle Saracens repeated as champs.)
Cheers to everyone for a great weekend.
