Our season started off slow, going down in our first two games. We were down but not out.
Our third game saw us gain a wealth of experience with our starting QB making a return after missing the first two games due to a shoulder injury. We won our third game of the season to move us to 1-2 after the first half of the season.
The second half of the season saw us hit our strides and put in strong performances putting up 50+ points two weeks in a row moving us to 3-2.
In the final game of the regular season we faced a strong wolves team that were too good for us on the day narrowly going down after not being able to convert on the final drive of the game. Finishing the regular season 3-3 missing out on the silverware which went to the wolves.
We then played in one heck of a final which saw us and the wolves go into triple overtime after the scores were tied up at the end of regulation 14-14. The first period of extra time saw no team score. In the 2nd period both teams we able to reach the endzone. This took us to the 3rd period of extra time where everything was put on the line. Our defence made an awesome redzone stand and gave our offence a chance to win the game. We were able to use the hard count to our advantage causing the wolves Dline to come offside giving us a free play from 15 yards out. A pitch right to our RB with great blocks saw us walk it in for the game winning TOUCHDOWN. and becoming back to back Wellington champs. Taking us to 4 finals wins in the last 5 seasons.
As for the Wellington Wolves and Porirua Warriors both teams had an awesome season and american football wouldn't be alive and well without both teams and support crews.
