Well, not much good news to report from last weekend’s Cowtown Tournament in Fort Worth. We had two sides in the tourney. Baylor in the Collegiate Premiere Division, and the Geezers in the Men’s Premiere Division. Both sides went winless, while Baylor put on a better showing than the old farts.
Baylor played tough matches against A&M, Rice and the Quins U-23 side, while the Geezers missed an opportunity to beat Fort Worth in game 1, then, thanks to injuries, cramping, and being old, got blown out by Tulsa and the Collegiate Select squad, led by none other than former Baylor Head Coach Mike Kwedar, who respectfully played a lot of different guys so as not to blow us out too bad.
All in all it was fun, I suppose, but man, what a run of injuries for the Geezers, who at least looked darn good for the first 5 minutes in their new Adidas All Black Geezer kits.
The Geezer Hit List:
Oliphant » 5 minutes into game 1, hurt knee, out for day.
McGuigan » hurt off and on in game 1, out for day.
Washko » cut above eye early in game 2, out for day.
Lewis » busted chin in game 2, out for day
Mackey » sick, tired, old, played 2 of 3 games.
Bloodrive » cramped, missed game 3
Teddy » cramped, missed game 3
The Survivors (Played all 3):
The Not Really Geezers but Thank God They Played Awards:
Reuther » Brilliant runs, good endurance, sorry we couldn’t get you a win.
Cruz » Great runs, top notch kicking, and running down Kwedar kicks in the last match
Lathrop » Went all 3 games, and provided some relief with a piggy back ride against the Selects.
