Week 7: Fencing

pickup frisbeeAfter 4 weeks of rainouts, you’d figure Sludge’s defense AND offense would be a bit rusty. Well, Brian quickly oiled BOTH by scoring a Callahan on the very first point!

Besides point #1 gimme, it was a back-&-forth game versus Backhand’d Compliment. 1-0, 2-2, 2-3, 4-4. Jen & Sarah (playing savage) made great cuts as Nigel actively caught scores. Andrew and CHarlie were both in-game rehabbing, and also kept the O going.

The O flow was generally scattered tho Sludge kept their offense close to the sidelines. Sludge consistently wasted a more than few O ops close to the end zone by some high-count tosses & bcs-of-wind throwaways. This was a time to catch up (socially), but Joe casually reminded brown “Less talking, more running.” True, game pace was set at PICKUP with Sludge +1 at half.

The defense was more like a chain link fence with gaping holes the size of passing lanes. Sludge’s D seemed to have found ‘religion’ on Saturday, that’s why its Zone was so “holey”. Granted, the experienced BH’dC shredded Sludge’s zone; their turnovers were typically unforced errors.

Toward the end of the game, Sludge exceeded the 12-point mark (YEAH!), 13-11. Whoever was less injured played the next few points and finding the end zone 2 more times. Win 15-12.
