Spring is finally here and just in time to kick off the second half of the season.
The Bombers started off in early March with a couple practice matches with Lindenwood to get some of the bugs out and ready for the first match of the season.
Last weekend both sides had their first league matches at Lucier Park as the DIII side took of Franklin County and the DII side faced the KC Islanders.
The Bombers suffered losses from each team in the first half of the season and were now looking at another chance for a win.
The DIII opened up strong and with a much larger pack this spring and were able to control the game and defeated Franklin County 42-0. The Bomber’s DII side was looking to repeat what the DIII side had accomplished as they took on the Islanders in the second game of the day. Ball control and playing Bomber rugby were key as DII team beat the Islander 29-7.
Both matches were huge victories for both sides as team’s battle for position in the league standings.
This weekend the DII side travels to Kanas City to take on the DI KC Blues in a friendly match. The DIII side will face off against Kohlfeld in Cape Girardeau for their second league match of the spring.
March 28th will be a fun weekend as the Bombers have two league matches and our Own the Bar Night that evening. The DII side is playing the Ramblers at Lucier Park and the DIII side will face the Royals at 1pm with a location TBD.
The OTB Night will take place at Colombo’s Café & Tavern off Manchester starting at 5pm. From 5 to midnight the club will receive half of what the bar makes and so you can really help the club out with every purchase. There will also be a silent auction and raffle for the Bucket(s) O’Booze. Make sure to stop by and bring anyone and everyone to games and then to the bar.
