Littleton Eagles Kurt Werner movin’ out!


East High Angels v Littleton Eagles On as fine as a spring Colorado evening as you’re likely to see, Littleton Eagles swooped into East Angels homegrounds, Heaven, with a will to rugby. Slightly more than an hour past Referee Tim Luscombe’s opening whistle, and 11 trys in total later on, one side soared off on the wings of well-earned victory. It did not start well for the travelers as a misplayed kickoff catch had an East scrum outside the Littleton 22 meter line. That set piece won, the Angels worked their way into their guests business district in three pounding phases from breakdown until second row, C J Cade, snatched ball from out the loose and stormed across goal for his grounding, flyhalf Jack Bock converted and East were up by seven in the early goings. Littleton roared back upfield at re-start, claiming the turnover inside East 10 meter line. A pair of hungry rolls off the maul to stabilize the service platform and ball spun swiftly wide by halfback Kurt Werner found flyer, Greg Pearson, with a bit of space and that was all the quick man required to dot the corner score that made it 7-5 homeys with five minutes off the clock. Now lads got down to it with territorial kicks by East, countering action from the capable Littleton backthree, and turnovers begetting fast attacks all making for exciting rugby in the cooling night air. East were to realize the next numbers as Cade, once again, proved unstoppable inclose, carrying a wouldbe stopper into goal for the try that, along with Bock’s added deuce, extended the host margin to nine at 14-5 in the 11th minute. Then it was Littleton’s chance to feature as their light and mobile forwards exacted the turnover and rushed into East 22 meter zone and on down to the business district before Werner swift-tapped a penalty awarded eight meters from goal and the quickster’s swervy little scamper enabled the cross-and-dot for fullback Luke Ryan’s conversion and it tightened to 14-12 midway through the first half. Littleton were back on attack within the Angles 22 when #10, Zach Melphy, scythed into space, crossed and grounded the go-ahead score in the 18th minute; with Ryan’s conversion, 19-12 to Eagles. Melphy was back in the zone half-dozen ticks on as he slipped a tackle five meters from goal, struggled some for possession, and lunged over the paint to ground for Ryan’s completion and it was 24-14 Littleton with 24 gone by. Werner got Littleton’s last shout of the initial period, looping behind the scrum along the weak sideline before stepping past a pair of defenders to score in the corner: 31-14 Eagles as Luscombe sounded the break and the players went off for strategic enlightenment.


East were the serious rugby business in the first fifteen while Eagle owned the latter stages of the first half. Quickfire service of Eagles’ American International College scholar awardee Werner, rapid distribution by pivot Melphy, meant relentless front foot action and much offense by the visitors in the second, 15minute, segment. The second stanza was all Littleton Eagles with formidable five-eighths, Cam Glon, slicing into goal for a try converted by Ryan: 38-14 five minutes into the last half. Eagles redoubtable hooker, Michael Thompson, was next on the scoresheet with a grounding at 42 minutes to make the tallies 43-14. Melphy touched down his tryple two minutes before time: 48-14; and 8-man Takuma Matsutani finished well to end scoring on the night and a final of 53-14 was recorded at Luscombe’s last blast. Scoring East – Try: Cade (2); Con: Bock (2) Littleton – Try: Pearson, Werner (2), Melphy (3), Glon, Thompson, Matsutani; Con: Ryan (4) Match Official: Tim Luscombe
