Seattle Pulls Away To Beat Utah
(Salt Lake City, Utah) – Major League Rugby defending champions, the Seattle Seawolves, came out strong in the second half to hand the Utah Warriors their sixth loss of the season with a final score of 48-36. The Seawolves were up 22-17 at halftime but opened up the second half with three tries in the first 16 minutes. The Warriors answered with two additional tries but the Seawolves pulled out a try in the 75′ minute to secure the win. The Seawolves move to 6-3 on the season and the Warriors move to 1-6-1. The Warriors do pick up one point on the table for scoring four tries, for a total of ten.
Tim O’Malley led the scoring for the Warriors with 16 points including all four conversions, a penalty kick and try. Others scoring for the Warriors include Franco Van Den Berg 17′, Nolan Tuamoheloa ’33, Fets Vainikolo 26′, and Joshua Whippy 71′. Brad Tucker of the Seattle Seawolves scored two tries and was named the Rockwell Watches Man of the Match.
“We score enough trys to win games but we can’t make enough tackles to win” said Warriors Head Coach Alf Daniels. “This game was literally a difference of four or five tackles and we would have won. We have got to get better defensively.”
The Warriors total attendance for the night was 2,589. Coach Daniels complimented the fan base for their support, “I was concerned after last year’s blowout that our fans might hold back with us, they could not have been more enthusiastic tonight, they continue to be loud and loyal.”
The Warriors next match is April 13th at New Orleans. The next home match will be Saturday, April 27th at Zions Bank Stadium versus the Austin Elite.
