Coach’s Corner- Ultimate Frisbee

MacDuffie Varsity 15   @  Pioneer Valley Regional School  5
It was smooth sailing for the varsity team on a crystal clear and windless day.  Working with both zone and man to man defense,  MacDuffie outplayed PVRS with team play and individual effort.
MacDuffie JV  9         @  Bement  15
Bement had a strong first half, overwhelming the MacDuffie JV. But a switch to zone defense made a difference, with MacDuffie outscoring Bement 9-7 in the second half.
MacDuffie Varsity   15    vs.    PVPA JV     0
In a mismatched game, our varsity boys played a respectful game that was fun for all. A post game  scrimmage with mixed teams was a perfect way to end an ideal afternoon.
MacDuffie Girls     4      vs.    Charlemont Academy    2
In what may become a rivalry, the girls defeated Charlemont, a team which narrowly defeated MacDuffie Girls near the end of last season.  Great spirit and teamwork abounded!

MacDuffie JV 9  @ Eagle Brook. 15

A close game – Macduffie led in the middle of the first half.   Lots of great plays by our JV players!  We couldn’t quite contain their deep throws with our zone.

Three games on Saturday in round robin format. 

Game one.  Macduffie 11. North Branford 12
Close game ending in a hard cap (like sudden death overtime)
Game two. Macduffie 11.   Worcester Academy 9
Another close game against a tall Worcester team.
Game three.  Macduffie 11. Marianapolis 5

What a day for the ten players that played three games!

Special thanks to Coach Gloria and Mr. Hillman who saved the tournament!
