Geoducks on a path towards greatness

The Chuckanut Bay Geoducks fought hard last weekend and demonstrated marked improvements in their away game against the Portland Pigs.  The Geoducks traveled light with their best 16 and faced the Pigs in muddy and soggy conditions.  The Pigs played consistently and un-waivered in their game plan, scoring over 20 unanswered points in the first half.  Chuckanut scored two tries with scrum half, Sam Hobbs and center, Levi Johnson in the second half, but it wasn't enough to take the lead.  The Geoducks put up a brave fight against the pigs however came up short with a final score of 10-58.

With one sub available, all but one of the Chuckanut players put in a full 80 minutes.  Coach Joel's man of the match for the game was Levi Johnson, who got to take home the belt for his tireless efforts and performance on the field.  The Geoduck's captain, Micah Bartlett added, "It was a good game for us to practice our game plan, get some synergy with new teammates, and learn from an experienced team that will make us better."  While the team enjoys a couple weeks before the next game, practices will focus on reinforcing the game plan and to prepare for the team's home opener against ORSU on March 16th.
