2nd XV lose to LUC in last actions of the game
After two strong wins away it was time for the seconds to find their home pitch again to face the strong side of LUC.
Starting with a solid defense and thanks to Tom MacMan’s experienced boot we were in the lead on this sunny afternoon with a 3-0
Later in the game after some mixed performance from both sides, Linus our new young center found the crack in the defense to score the first try of the day to strengthen our lead 8-0
Luc later had an opportunity to comeback before the end of the first half but failed to do so.
The second half was a little less successful for the team. After a line-out and Maul Lausanne made, the university team powered through the defense into the try zone.(8-7)
Despite our Black lighting’s effort (Dayron) to score again(13-7), some approximation in attack and miscommunications in defense allowed a broken LUC to believe again.
LUC managed to score again under the post (13-14) and take the lead for the first time of the afternoon.
Even with GC’s Bench and Alex Ramon’s typical (filthy) french tricks to get us a penalty in front of the posts for Tom’s precise kicking(16-14). LUC finally took advantage of our slow reorganization to kill the game with one last try (16-21). The Team got the defensive bonus point, and an eager to come back soon to show what they can do!
