Possums Win Mud Bowl

The Possums traveled to Birmingham, AL on Saturday, February 23 for the first of two matches with their new matrix foe.  The day was perfect for rugby with sunny skies and a light breeze, but a week of rain left the pitch in poor shape.  The game started as a back and forth affair with both teams relying on their packs to move the ball.  Knoxville was able to draw first blood by getting the ball out wide and scoring a try in the corner.  The half ended with Knoxville slotting a penalty kick to bring the score to 8-0.  The second half began with Birmingham attacking strongly and eventually scoring from a Possum penalty to make the score to 8-3.  Birmingham posed a constant threat during casino jameshallison the last 10 minutes as they kept the ball inside the Knoxville 22.   The Vulcans applied constant pressure attempting to punch the ball across the line to even the score, but the Possums wouldn’t give up, making tackle after tackle.  The sloppy field conditions and frustration finally boiled over and Birmingham was called for a penalty allowing the Possums to kick the ball into touch to end the game.  The win moves KRFC to 4-0 in Matrix play.
