Lucerne Dangels hard fought win vs. GC Zürich
|Saturday, Apr 9, 2016||15:00||National League Female A||2015/16|
After a 30-0 defeat last Fall vs. GC Zürich the Lucerne Dangels did not need any extra motivation for this big game last Saturday on their home pitch. And as expected, it was from the starting whistle a very exciting and even game.
Zürich had the advantages of their strong play in contact and their rocket fast winger, who ended up scoring both of the GC tries by running down the sideline far from their own end.
However the Dangels were working as a team during the whole game and especially stepped up their defense. Allthough they had way to many penalties, including a yellow card and lots of individual mistakes, they never stopped fighthing. This was rewarded so after lots of chances the Dangels finally scored two tries (1. Try: Wespi, severel pop-&support-phases near the tryline and finally a strong run by Wespi into the gap / 2. Try: Henni, out of a great backs Play) and it was 10-10 for what seemed a very long time. During the last 10min. of the game, Judith got a pass from Carien to the blind side and crashed into Zürich’s defense to open up a gap for Lolli, who got the popp pass and sprinted down the sideline for the final try of the game.
Final score: Lucerne Dangels 17 – 10 GC Zürich
Angel: Tazmac (amazing workrate during the whole game and great tackles!)
Devil: Iris (yellow card for high tackle while being offside), could have gone to our el capitano as well haha 😉 no comment.
Joelle (GC Zürich) and Hildi (RC Lucerne Dangels): Get well soon!
Thank you to all the supporters and coaches!
