The first day of action is over. To sum it up: Bad Skid won both games on a very very muddy underground. The water is still standing on the fields and on some spots you are nearly unable to walk. Nevertheless, the games are being played and so the games are a little bit unusual, as everybody has to cope with the situation.
In the first game of the day Bad Skid was facing Relampagos, the champions of the Dom Rep. We had a terrible start, when both D-Line and O-Line were not able to score. With the early 0-2 residue in the heads, we knew something had to be changed immediately. The O-Line scored the point and the D-Line entered the field. And they stayed. To say it shortly the Relampegos guys had not much to answer against different zones and a hard man-on-man D. We took half 8-4 and the game easily with 15-5. For sure, the hardest part of the game was to get rid of the mud on the feet, afterwards.
After a few hours relaxing in the beautiful sun the next game was to be played at 17.00 o’clock against our rivals from Bologna. Again we had a rather bad start on offense, but the defense was very intensive and got some blocks early. This was our luck, because the O-line did not really play their game. Needless to say that the game became very close with small leads on both sides. As you can imagine, it was the defense that took half for Bad Skid with 8-7. Unfortunately the second half was not better. The number of calls on both sides increased as the game proceeded. When the time was over the score was 11:11, so a universe-point had to decide the outcome of the game. A classic score from our #18, with the assist from #25 brought the second win of the day for Bad Skid.
After the cooldown, we headed back to the dorms to eat pasta at the local restaurant. At least we tried to.
In the “best catch of the day award” the winner today is our #2 Walder who saved a slightly overthrown huck with a spectacular “toeing-the-line”-catch. Congratulations for this important score in the tough game against CUSB.
Tomorrow we will be playing just one game on the show-case field. You can watch this live on SkyD magazine on 17.00 o’clock. Stay tuned!
Bad Skid – it should be sleeping right now
