Baylor University took 2 sides to play the Dallas Reds this past weekend to continue to develop and blood their young players and looking to build toward our first cup match in November. Dallas Red are a very established and strong Division II Men’s Club and are looking to regain their previous status of being a Division I strength.
Baylor still has a lot of learning to do and the experience of the Men’s side showed on the day. The Baylor Bears did have some bright spots however and their backline continued to improve and were effective at shutting down the Reds backs. Our inexperience in the pack continues to show as our scrum and rucking at the breakdown situation needs dramatic improvement over the next several weeks.
Baylor came out firing with a try to 8-man Blake Rodgers after a bobbled kickoff resulted in him grubbering it down the field and then outrunning the cover defense to take the lead 7 – 0 after a successful conversion by Flanker Gavin Goetchius. Later in the game Brent Jukubec continued to score tries one late in the first half off of a chip kick by flyhalf Jeff Kriesel and another one on a nice individual run of 50 meters.
