Rocky Gorge DI Bounces Back With Win Over Baltimore-Chesapeake

After losses to NYAC and Wilmington, Rocky Gorge responds with a 56-19 victory over Baltimore-Chesapeake.

After disappointing losses to NYAC and Wilmington last weekend, Rocky Gorge recovered by keeping Baltimore-Chesapeake under significant defensive pressure all day. After losing their shape on defense and unnecessary penalties, BC crept back into the game with two first half tries. In the second period, BC couldn’t match Gorge’s forwards and backs in the loose resulting in a 56-19 final score.

Rocky Gorge head coach Nick DiMichele has a short memory and a next man up attitude. “Win or lose on Saturday, we forget about it by Sunday. Patch the holes and focus on the next match. We were able to get some continuity and put some phases together [versus BC. Inside center] Cordell Drummond gave us a platform and the forwards recycled ball well. Matias Cima led our backs with an aggressive attack. We have a lot of pieces to this puzzle missing and our goal is to make it right by the end of the month.”

Rocky Gorge started the match with three straight tries by Tony Ayigah (2) and Nick Sylor that were all converted by Nick Kuhl. BC came back with two tries by big Peter Brock, but Gorge responded with Ayigah’s third try and another by Will Miller for the 35-12 halftime advantage.

Gorge increased its pressure in the second half leading to tries from Matias Cima and Kuhl. Brock earned his hat trick late in the game, but a Dustin Meehan try off the restart was the final dagger for Gorge. Kuhl ended the day with the golden boot going 8 for 8 on conversions.

Coming off an inspirational win against Norfolk last weekend, BC was optimistic at its chances against Gorge. “We had moments of good play on our side, but we just didn’t put it all together,” captain Tyler Barberi said. “ Rocky Gorge came ready to play and under the circumstances, everybody played as hard as they could. It was a hard-fought game on both sides.”
