Narberth Otters Continue to Impress
Following the cancelation of their regularly scheduled match on Sunday March 18, the Narberth Otters traveled to Doylestown to take on St. Joe’s Prep’s second side after the conclusion of the Doylestown vs. Prep match. It was a great opportunity for the newer Narberth players to see high level rugby as Doylestown and SJP are perennially two of the top programs in the State and Nationally as well. Narberth picked up 4 Doylestown boys who were able to give valuable minutes including one who played hooker the entire second half. The final score of the match was 53-20 in favor of the Otters.
Coach Gabe Gliwa said that it was all in all a great game. This was the first time we got to see the boys play a whole 70 minutes on a full rugby field versus a turf football field. Our backs showed flash and our forwards helped in the open field. There were quite a few big breakaways that came about off of good passing and quite a few huge tackles that evoked big reactions from the crowd. Coach Gliwa added that Narberth kept Prep scoreless until the 2nd half when we had subs in and people playing out of position due to new guys mixing in.
The Otters return to action on Sunday April 8 vs Coventry with a 11AM kickoff at Garthwaite Stadium in Conshohocken (100 E 11th Ave, Conshohocken PA, 19428)
