Buccaneers wear the crown

| 04/10/2011

(CRFU ) The 3rd and final leg of the 2011 A.R. Scott 10’s tournament was played on 24 September at the South Sound Rugby ground with only 3 teams taking part. The John Doak Architecture Iguanas, well out of the running for a podium spot forfeited their matches for the day with injuries and off island absences taking their toll on the team. The Ecay Pigs Trotters, without fearless leader Doug Anderson leading from the safety of the touchline, succumbed to 3 straight defeats on the day and were therefore unable to mount a final attack on the Krys Global Buccaneers lead in the tournament standings – DHL Cayman Storm 7-14 Buccaneers.

The Ecay Pigs Trotters, knowing that the clash against the Storm was a must win affair were subjected to a heavy loss at the hands of the men in yellow who were clearly unfazed by their loss earlier in the day. The Storm defense impressed most by only allowing in 1 try by the Trotters – Ecay Pigs Trotters 7-34 DHL Cayman Storm

The final match up the day was not going to be the decider of the tournament but rather an opportunity for the 2 top ranked teams to leave their mark on what had been a fun and good natured competition. That said the Buccaneers took no chances and stamped their authority on the game early on. A late surge from the Pigs Trotters in the 2nd half made for a few nervy moments for the Buccaneers but the final result was never in doubt. – Krys Global Buccaneers 44-17 Ecay Pigs Trotters
