Coming from their previous game against Canisius, winning 19-15, Orchard Park Rugby played their second game of the season against Kenmore on Friday, April 28. Players Brent Humphrey, Mike Young, Jack Gorzynski, and Will Mann out with injury, leaving them with only seventeen eligible players. This game was a defensive struggle because an entire back line was not playing due to injuries. CJ Henrich, a freshman at Orchard Park High School and current player on the rugby team, said, “Kenmore has always been the number one team in our league, so this game is going to be a challenge, especially with so many kids out.” During the game Kenmore got three yellow cards, making players unable to play for ten minutes of the game, and one red card, causing a player to be ineligible to play the rest of the current game along with the next one. The game was a struggle, and the score ended 48-22, Kenmore. After the game, Orchard Park Rugby coach Emerson Smith said, “If the kids played defensively the way they did the second half in the first half, they would have had a better chance of staying in the game.” Even though this game was a loss, the players are looking forward to their next game against Fairport. Fairport has been a good team who beat Orchard Park the past three years.  However, Orchard Park hopes to compete this year because of the loss of Fairport’s stronger senior players. Best of luck Orchard Park Rugby.
