Rocky Gorge Blasts Schuylkill River, 49-12

Gorge Blanks Schuylkill 42-0 in First Half, Takes Foot Off the Gas in the Second

Rocky Gorge continued its 2016-2017 romp through the conference with a 49-12 beating of the Schuylkill River Exiles in Columbia, Md. The first half couldn’t have gone any better for Gorge as everything clicked to lead 42-0 at the break. With such a big lead and improved play by the Exiles, Gorge let its play slip allowing Schuylkill River to score two tries and hold Gorge to a single try in the second half.

Although Gorge won handily, head coach Nick DiMichele was critical of his team’s performance. “We didn't play a full 80. The first half was great. The boys really work our shape and executed the game plan we wanted. The second half is usually our strong suit and I think we lost focus and got out of our structure due to a heavy lead. We need to be better at finishing and show more composure.”

Eightman Josh Brown, lock Will Miller, and fullback Nick Kuhl each scored a pair of tries in first half and prop Brady Smith rumbled through the defense for a second half try. Flyhalf Ben Cima was perfect with the boot connecting on all seven conversions. For the Exiles, Gorge had trouble dealing with the mauls as Casey Richard and Randy Helsman added points from the forwards play.

Commenting on the match, Schuylkill head coach Bill Jalbert said, “Gorge put a lot of pressure on us offensively in the first half. Being forced to play defense for pretty much 40 straight minutes takes a lot out of you. Hats off to my guys for coming back in the second half and turning up the heat and putting more pressure on them.”

On the prospects of playing Pittsburgh next weekend on the road without Cima, who will be with the USA Selects at the Americas Pacific Challenge, DiMichele said, “Traveling is always tough, we are expecting a physical pack with a dynamic backline. Luke Titus leads his team well and is dangerous with his boot. We've been in these situations before with Ben being absent due to Eagle priorities. It's just another opportunity to test our depth. It's simple a formula, next man up.”
