SEAWOLVES ON THE ROAD IN CANADA AGAINST TORONTO ARROWS

The Seawolves traveled to Toronto for the first road game over the Canadian border. The cross-country travel appeared to play a toll on the Seawolves as errors ultimately brought them a defeat on the road.

 

KICK OFF:
JP Smith kicked things off for the Seawolves in Toronto. The Toronto Arrows came out firing with consistent possession and driving forces towards the try zone, but the Seawolves showed an increased discipline with few penalties and a strong defensive Seawall.

 

20 MINUTES:
The Toronto Arrows were able to dominate possession in the first part of the game and used a penalty to their advantage to kick for points. Score was 0-3 Arrows at minute 25. The Seawolves answered back as Roland Suniula burst through the Arrows line and found the Seawolves just short of the try zone. A steal by the Arrows gave their defense some breathing room, but a yellow card to their 14 gave the Seawolves a one-man advantage. Despite playing a man down, the Arrows charged forcefully down the pitch and found their way to the corner of the try zone. A missed conversion kept the score at 0-8 Arrows to end the half.

 

40 MINUTES:
The second half began with another steady string of attacking phases by the Toronto Arrows, and a second try that brought the score to 0-15 Arrows after a dot-down from their backs.

 

60 MINUTES:
The Seawolves started to find their footing with quick-play phases. Shalom Suniula was able to dodge two Arrows and soar through to the try zone for the first and only Seawolves try. Brock Staller converted; score was raised to 7-15 with the Arrows still in the lead. The Seawolves were stringing together a solid attack once again but a slip up by Tim Metcher gave the Arrows the opportunity they needed to sprint up field for a try. Conversion was good which raised the score to 7-22 with only nine minutes left in the game. In a hunt for bonus points, the Arrows forwards found their way to a fourth try by the hands of their lock. Another successful conversion brought the final score to 7-29.

 

FINAL SCORE:
Seawolves lose to the Toronto Arrows, 7-29.

 

NEXT HUNT:
The Seawolves are off for a week before hunting again on the East Coast on Saturday, May 11 at 1:30 PM PT as they take on Rugby United New York. Watch live on ROOT SPORTS or ESPN+.
