North Shore had a great weekend full of rugby after the long drive the Minnesota. Saturday, May 8th, North Shore kicked off against the Minnesota Valkyries in the final league match of the season. The Valkyries provided great competition and gave us a physical match. We used this opportunity to work on our game plan for the upcoming playoff weekend in Pittsburgh, PA which is a short two weeks away. First match our Shark eating Kitty winner is Kadie Sanford and Valk's pick for woman of the match, Charli Jacoby!
On Sunday, May 9th, North Shore played a match against WPL team - Twin City Amazons. We used this match to physically and mentally ready ourselves for the back to back matches we will experience come playoffs. The Zons tested our strengths and weaknesses; allowing North Shore to focus on our attack structure and identify areas to improve on. The first half was closely fought with the halftime score of 12-19 to the Zons. Second half we saw a fire lit under the Amazons and ended the match with our first defeat all year. Thanks for the battle Zons! Final Score 55-17 to the Amazons.
