It was a warm and humid Saturday afternoon when the Arkansas Gryphons took the pitch to square off against the Kansas City Blues. The Blues only traveled with twelve players, they fielded a talented side with their vacancies being filled by the Gryphons reserves.
Kickoff was promptly at 2 p.m. with the Blues receiving the opening kickoff. The Gryphons came out fast and hard, poaching the ball from an early ruck. On that first possession, Jeremy Johnson was the recipient of an offload to the weakside and was able to weave through the Blues backfield to score the opening try. The kick, attempted from near the sideline, was not converted.
The Gryphons were able to put another early try on the board as Jeremy Johnson dashed to the corner for his second try of the day. Unfortunately that kick was also not converted.
After the second try, the Gryphons momentum began to slow as they gave back the two early tries. The Blues were able to convert their kicks giving them a 14-10 lead until Torrence Williams fought his way to the try zone for the Gryphons 3rd and final score on the day. Unable to convert on the extra points, the Gryphons took a hard fought 15-14 lead into the half.
This would be the last of the highlights for the Gryphons on this Saturday. The Blues came out hard in the second half and held the Gryphons scoreless while taking the lead and widening the score to a 31-15 final. Although the final score was obviously disappointing, the Gryphons showed much improvement in their set pieces and showed early flashes of their full potential.
After the match, the Gryphons hosted the Blues at the Original Core Brewery Tap Room. As usual, good times were had by all but maybe none as good as Jeremy Johnson and Torrence Williams, who were named ‘Man of the Match’ and ‘DOD’ respectively.
The Gryphons will be hosted by the University of Arkansas Rugby Club under the lights of the Intramural Fields this Friday night at 7 p.m.
