On paper, the second round of fixtures proposed a far more challenging prospect. The Dirty Ducks, a name lovingly coined from one of Warwick’s finest establishments, were the first opponents for the men’s team. No love was lost between the old friends, and in an intense game, punctuated with close calls and tight finishes, the Ducks prevailed with a somewhat flattering score line of 12-2.
The following game was something that the boys will want to forget quickly as they were put to the sword by the Imperial Wolverines, the boys were bulldozed by the sheer power of the Imperial throwing. The Warriors were scythed down to a humbling 13-1 loss.
These results meant that Warwick’s final game of the day against the Derby Seahawks was an absolute must-win. Some powerful throwing and savvy target selection ensured the Warriors ended the day on a high, sealing a 10-4 victory against Derby. This made the long journey home a little more bearable.
Tim Day was excellent as captain. He bore the brunt of most of the throwing, but his strength never wavered. Instigating some clever target selection, he masterminded the much needed victory over Derby.
