Week 5: wIndeed

Saturday's game blew in with a fairly steady wind stream. The first 3 points endured about 30 minutes with Sludge slightly OFF-ense. Wind blew, yet throws were denied flow. Up-wind/down-wind wasn't a factor as much as the gusty challenge of being 1) catch-nimble and 2) throw-hopeful. Points were traded in the first half with neither chompp, nor brown truly prevailing. 1-1, 4-2, 6-4.

Sludge breezed into half up 4 points, and then galed to a 10-4 lead. Bucci, Jen Sarah & Rachel flexed their gusted D skills to help prevent any up field throws. Andrew, Joe and David supplied brOwn jet stream with controlled, continuous medium-to-short passing. The wind was friendly in the 2nd half as a Nigel overthrow to CHris, which MicHael caught & then threw to Rachel for a bounding score.

To cap the game, Matthew threw a huck to Russ. Win 15-7.

Sludge, again, sweetly celebrated the end of the game with lightly frosted chocolate cupcakes from Jen.
