The stands were packed, the cheerleaders were cheering, the games were competitive, and the hotdogs were roasting!
I was very impressed by Australia's Scots College Lions, who are fresh off of an 80 point win over the Centennial Chargers yesterday in an exhibition game (Yes, 80 points, final score was 123-43). Guess they don't believe in the mercy rule Down Under! Anyways, Scots College beat Saskatoon's own Evan Hardy by a solid 27 points tonight. Their lone senior #7 Patrick Emery was quite the slasher and playmaker. His performance prompted me to tweet: "If Australia wins #BRIT, I'm moving there."
Winnipeg's Garden City and Saskatoon's Holy Cross faced off in the last game of the night. Holy Cross brought half their student body to cheer on their Crusaders, as per usual. It was basically Holy Cross fans verses the rest of humanity in the gym tonight, again, as per usual. The Crusaders fought hard but came up 4 points short against Garden City and their star player #5 Andre Arruda-Welch, who scored Garden City's first 12 points!
I'll keep this recap between those two games, as they were the two that stood out most in my mind. I apologize for the lack of pictures, but my wifi is down and I'm writing this up on my handy PlayBook.
