Game 1 took place against Karlstad, after a beautiful kickoff by Nathan we were able to make a key turn overs and get the ball to Larry for a quick try on the wing. Strong defense through the first half saw many turn overs by Sufiyan Moumin and Vincent Andre, allowing our offense to score twice more before half time. 1 more to Larry, 1 to Ani, and 1 to Emil Marklund. Second half was a slow start for Uppsala, we let our defense falter and Karlstad put two into the try zone in quick succession. After a rallying cry Uppsala was back in the zone and dominated for the remaining minutes scoring twice more, 1 to Larry and 1 to Emil (I believe). Final score ended 6 tries to 2.
Game 2 saw Uppsala playing a combination Erikslund/Sandviken/Gävle/Enköping team. Size was the key difference in this game, but knowing this we used our speed to our advantage. 1st half there was great ball running, communication, and defense by forwards Louis/Nathan/Michael to hold off the sizeable opposition and allow the ball to get out to Larry to score. Soon after another successful turnover, Emil found a hole in the defense and exploited it for a 50m try. 2nd half Uppsala held composure, allowing the opposition to score but also scoring again. This game was tight throughout but Uppsala came out on top, I believe the score was 3 tries to 1.
