Space City 2015 - with Karbach

Old Maroon @ Space City 7s – 8/15/2015

With a core group of 3 – 4 players and blistering heat, the squad was blessed with Alumni supplemental players who were committed to their respective Men’s teams. The untrained crew tore through Alamo City, scoring 6 – 7 tries in the first half alone, before overcoming a slow start to defeat Bay Area.

At 2 – 0, the third match v. Houston’s H.U.R.T. proved more difficult. After a red card in the first half left the Aggies with 6 players to field for the remainder of the game, they dug in and were up 21 – 19 with seconds left on the clock. Unfortunately, the crew couldn’t hold on and H.U.R.T. dotted down at full time to win the game 24-21 to smash the Aggies hopes for Undefeated pool play.

At 2 – 1 , the Aggies were seeded in the Top 4 bracket and were playing for money; eagerly anticipating Houston’s Colt .45s, but it was not to be. Weather rolled in and cancelled the remainder of the tournament leaving the top 4 teams (Colt .45s, H.U.R.T., Lonestar, and Old Maroon) tied for 1st. It was Old Maroon’s most competitive showing of the Summer.
