‘Twas a dark and windy night! Makes me recall these wise words:
“We first feared the wind, but then the wind feared us” – Padre Zanja, 1868
Zanja Madre took an early, commanding 7-1 lead, but BGF found their groove and rattled off 5 consecutive points. Going into half, Zanja had an 8-5 lead.
After a brief halftime, the teams took to the field with less windy conditions. BGF continued to have the hot hand and nearly tied the game (8-7 in ZM’s favor). Zanja Madre then found their flow and cemented their lead, eventually winning 15-10.
There were fantastic upwind break points by both teams! Zanja highlights include:
-Jack’s textbook defense on the up-calls. Dude knows how to track down a disc!
–Kellee scoring 4,910 of our 15 points. We appreciate you. Great runs, great catches
-Emily’s shutdown defense and impressive knockdowns
-Colin changing his name to Oliver
-Celebrity guest star Maggie (our sub) catching that ISO upwind point
-Maggie saying we look good as a team 🙂
-Matt Lee generously donating blood in 2/2 games this season
-Lauren keeping score and cheering on both teams despite being injured
-Wendy’s grammy nominated end-of-game spirit cheer to the tune of “Believe” by Cher. Wendy is a LEGEND!
