Back Bay welcomed Ventura County Outlaws to Peninsula Park on Saturday, for the first home game of the 2015 season.
The day started with the Back Bay Youth U14 team hosting Carlsbad. Both teams were very competitive and enjoyed the opening hour of rugby before Ventura and Back Bay took to the field.
Ventura travelled with a full squad of players, looking to challenge Back Bay from the start. Both sides fought for posession but Back Bay were first to put points on the board after 8 minutes with Sebastian Pedreira going over the line in the corner. With a strong wind it was difficult to get kicks on target so the conversion went wide.
Back Bay travelled 140 miles from Newport Beach to open the 2015 season against Santa Barbara. After the disappointment of having the initial game against San Luis Obispo cancelled because of some nasty weather (about 1 hour of light rain) Back Bay were keen to get off to a good start.
A full squad of eager players made the journey to Santa Barbara. The game started but Santa Barbara only had 13 players to begin with because of injuries and late arrivals. Back Bay didn't hold back but pressed immediately, going over the line after 2 minutes via Travis Whitlock. The conversation was made by Mike Wendel and he followed up after 5 minutes with a penalty kick to put Back Bay ahead by 10 points.
The pressure continued throughout the first half with Back Bay taking advantage of the extra numbers with tries from Shaun Baker (2), Mike Wendel, Milton Bartley and Travis Whitlock (2nd try) again to finish the half ahead by 39 points.
