We won our playoff round with Rustic Canyon today the 8th of March. Final score was 25 to 23. Our team was unbelievable at Rustic winning 13 to 11 with our guys playing at home coming up with a tie and advance to the round of 16. This was a tight battle and could have gone either way. Thanks to Terry Robuck for putting the team together and to Ash for being a great supporter and assistant team captain at Rustic. Our next match will be against the winner of La Purisima, Birnham Wood match, who will play each other on the 21st of March.
