Back Bay welcomed Kern County to Peninsula Park for the first home game of the 2016 season. Last season Back Bay had a tough time against Kern in Bakersfield and the same was expected this season.
The weather played a part in the game and caused Back Bay to cancel the first live televised match but we hope to continue this in future game. With the rain starting to look likely we kicked off 15 minutes early to get the match underway.
Back Bay were keen to get started with their strong attack that has been working well in the past few weeks, but key to the game was going to be the defense.
An early try from Taylor Alston, diving into the corner, showed that the attack was ready to continue from the previous week. Leading after 2 minutes, they never took their foot of the pedal.
Adam Shorter continued his scoring with a good try on 7 minutes and then the team a good maul towards the line and were awarded a penalty try on 13 minutes with Mike Wendel converting.
The game settled down and both teams competed before Mike Wendel ran around the defense for another try on 30 minutes.
The attack from Back Bay continued and Sebas Pedreira scored his first of the day on 35 minutes and the game ended 27 - 0 at the half.
Back Bay traveled to South Bay in Carson to continue the defense of the SCRFU Division 2 title. The short journey from Newport Beach to Carson proved to be a game with lots of points and some new faces in the Back Bay lineup. With no B side game due to low numbers from South Bay, the Back Bay coaching staff had a large number of players to pool from and selected a good squad to start the game and rested a few players who had picked up some minor injuries.
The game started at a quick pace, with Back Bay establishing their superiority by scoring in 3 minutes with a try from Mike Wendel, followed on 5 minutes with a score from Jack Watts, starting his first game for Back Bay. Wendel converted the second try and put Back Bay ahead by 12.
South Bay showed that the were not afraid to attack and quickly found their footing, challenging for the ball and eventually powering over the line on 11 minutes. Back Bay had to wait until 16 minutes for another try, this time from the full back, Freer, for his first try of the day, supporting Derrick Nguyen down the wing to receive a pass back inside to go over the line. Kevin Estipular followed up with a converted try on 19 minutes before South Bay had a converted try on 25.
