Venue: Alway Field (a little dry as the irrigation pump plugged with iron deposits - over only a few years- and the field has had no water for the last couple of very warm and dry weeks, they replaced the pump a couple of days ago but there is little water in the cistern). It was nice to play at home after two long away games. Game time 7:00 on a Thursday.
Referee: Our own Bob Mavro who volunteered (sort of) instead of playing: as there were no other refs available. Great job , Bob

Half time score: Grimsby Gentlemen 2 tries : Burlington Centaurs 2 tries.
About 10 minutes into the second half, Jake makes one of his patented breaks in our half and scores under the posts (without dropping the ball) to put us into the lead. However soon Burlington begins to tire us out and despite highlight reel plays by our props Milli and Ryan and some aggressive play we get scored upon three more times.
Final score: Grimsby Gentlemen 17: Burlington Centaurs 38
Over all it was a very good game for a friendly and a good evening. Thanks Burlington - it was much better than training.
