BURLINGTON CENTAURS DEFEAT HAMILTON HORNETS
Just prior to the Labour Day Weekend, the Burlington Centaurs 1st XV men's team travelled to Hamilton on Thursday for their last regular season game vs the Hamilton Hornets.
The Centaurs had to fill in some positions due to injury and availability which involved Nathan Bryan in the centers and Kyle Wilkins on the wing.
The Centaurs played a tight game in the first half but needed to work the ball wide against the Hamilton defence. Colin McLeod was able to cross the line for the try for the Centaurs to score first. The Hamilton Hornets capitalizing on the Centaurs' errors were able to link up to pick up some territory but the Centaur's goal line defence resulted in the ball being held up in the try zone and kept the Hornets to a score of only 7 points.
Near the end of the half, 2nd row Bill Clayton showed his physical dominance on the field. That physicality was just the motivation the Centaurs required to start the 2nd half.
The Centaurs played an expansive game in the 2nd half with Juan Palacio having a stand out performance at the flyhalf position scoring 2 tries.
The Centaurs pack continued to dominate in the scrums and set piece play allowing scrumhalf Zack Shurtleff to also score. The Burlington Centaurs defeated the Hamilton Hornets by a score of 24-7. By defeating Hamilton, the Burlington Centaurs 1st XV also took home the Abercarn Cup. Earlier in August the Burlington Centuars 2nd XV also defeated Hamilton to bring home the Abercarn Shield.
