This was venued at CSUMB’s new field (at least new to me; it has been a while). And while not a close game, it was well played.
I last had CSMB several years ago. They were a cheerful bunch, but not very good. This gang is a marked upgrade. While offensively unorganized, their tackling was fierce; perhaps the best I have seen this year. At the half, the score was 8-17.
But Maritime is going to the playoffs for a reason. Forward play stopped? No problem. Crashing centers stopped? No problem. In the second half, they swung it out to the wing with frequency. Four tries in the corner, and Bob is your uncle.
