WPL and D2 are both on the road this Saturday! WPL is kicking off the spring season with a friendly against Raleigh in North Carolina. D2 is travelling to Delaware (avoiding the snow) to play against White Horse for their second game of the season.
Last weekend in the balmy 20 degree, high wind weather, D2 beat Towson 36-15. All of the rookies played amazingly well from Sami’s dive tackle to prevent a Towson score to Kirk’s first try ever in the very last minute of the game!
During practice this week, the Furies worked on getting low in tackles, coming up together on defense, and improving catching off kicks for their games this weekend. Hopefully the weather will be a little warmer for both teams to display their refined skills this weekend!

- Val B.
