The Gaels pulled one out of the fire! And believe me, it was hot on the pitch today with both sides giving it all they had in a hard fought battle between our Gaels and Olympic Club. Kingsley McGowan and Garrett Brewer combined for an 80 yard try with McGowan making the break for about 40yds, then passing at just the right moment to Brewer who once again headed for the corner try line, with two defenders in chase, to put it down with no time left on the clock, breaking a 29-29 tie.
Prior to that phenomenal ending, it was back and forth from the get go. Kyle Peterson scored a tough maul type try to make it 5-6 Olympic Club. Then Kingsley scored after a long out-pass from Fly Half Garrett Brewer setting up the break SMC 12 OC 6. Then it was Olympic’s turn for a try, add on another penalty kick and OC led at half, 16-12.
Try by Dylan Audsley for 5, then another 3 for OC, then another Kingsley try and one by Bubba Jones. Somehow it became a 24-24 tie, then a 29-29 tie, and finally game over with the second McGowen to Brewer combo of the day: Final SMC 36 Olympic Club 29.
