Titans: My Site News
Against a stingy defense and effective offense the boys were determined to have a second undefeated season. The win was followed by a season-ending party and awards banquet. What a special season with a special group of boys and families. It was nice to finish off the season with a victory. We were nervous about playing a very good team twice in one season as it is always tough to beat a team twice in the same season. It was fun to see our defense play well and our offense have a balanced attack and control the line of scrimmage to seal the game. Great job boys. Play Hard. Have Fun. Thank you.

After a convincing win Saturday morning we finished with a bittersweet ending to the BVRC as we did end up with one loss, but in head-to-head competition we beat our opponent by more than they beat us. The boys put themsleves in a position to be champions even with a loss.
We also wrapped up the Premiere league with another strong performance and another win.
The boys ended the season 22-8, learned a lot, had a lot of fun and really came together as a team even though we added 6 players this year.

Tuesday, January 8
Basketball Comes Off Christmas Break
The boys were a little rusty Saturday and Sunday, but we were able to get a couple of hard fought wins. Our defense seems to be doing quite well with our offense still needing some work.
