Marshall met Scoober Divers for the first time, and it was a very well fought game. There’s a lot of talent on Scoober Divers, and the game stayed tight throughout the first half. Here’s Scoober Divers’ Terry Parent with the recap:
Scoober Divers started last season as a group of folks who played pick-up ultimate in Santa Clarita, (yes, at 6:30 a.m. on Saturday mornings.) and wanted to compete at a higher, more organized level. With the additions from Pasadena and beyond, solid coaching from Arista and Konrad, and a team who loves to learn, we’re getting it. And, we’ll continue to keep working at it until we’re there. Last night, although we lost, was a turning point. In the monomyth, the Hero goes on a journey to become a better version of themselves facing many challenges along the way. So far, the journey has been difficult, and last night was our biggest challenge so far, Marshall.
Marshall is a great machine of a team and a great group of people. They demonstrated awesome competitive play and amazing sportsmanship. We were having such a great time playing, and both sides just played solid ultimate. Marshall’s huck game to their women cutters is real. Real good. Turk, their dog is so freaking friendly that every time we’d come up short, it’d trot over to our side to console us. MVP for sure.
Game highlights were a blur. Someone from Marshall said we wouldn’t get 10 against them. We did. Marshall 15-S.D. 10
Shout out to our offense and overall team flow. It’s great when you can just shout out the whole team. We’re getting there.
Sad note I’m remembering now that you mentioned Turk. Apparently dogs are not allowed at Rancho, unless they’re service dogs. This seems to fly right in the face of a sign that’s up at Rancho saying dogs are okay, but the field people told us last night that the sign needs to come down cause it’s not accurate. So keep that in mind if you want to bring your pooch to a game. Dogs continue to be oppressed.
