Off to a solid start.
ORFC travelled 24 strong to take on a rather spirited Hogs squad. For the most part ORFC controlled territorial advantage and time of position but a few lapses in the defense gave the Hogs a couple of hard fought scores.
Kyle McCormick offered a early breath of fresh air coming off the bench, for an early injury, and with a strong run thru the forwards he was able to set Will free for a major score. Well done Kyle and Will. Lumbra and Grant had the backs running both with the foot and in hand.
With trys from Grant Seymour, two from Will Doherty, along with one conversions and 1 penalty kick from Sam Nelson and a conversion from Gunner Johnson the Griffins beat a tie out of the Gainesville Hogs on their home pitch.
Chase Alley, Kyle McCormick, Terry Keiser and Gunner Johnson all saw their first action in a Griffins uniform. Congratulations fellas. If yesterday was any indication all of you will be wearing the colors for years to come.
At the end of the day a pretty good showing for out first match of the fall. The result was pretty much as expected as everybody shook of the rust and endured the relentless heat and humidity
Thanks to JD Flynn and Mark “Frenchie” Ourtaau” and the young ladies who made the trip to support the lads.
