2/22/2014 LA Godzilla vs OC Gators

2014.02.26 Wed



We had another nice day of rugby at our home pitch today. We had U16 and U18 matches before our matches. Both of LARFC youth teams won. LA Godzilla should set tone for LARFC by wining this Div 4 match for D3 and D1 following ours. Our opponent, OC Gators, is at 2nd place in Div 4 at this time (2 win 1 loss).

1st half

3’ OC #8 attached on the scram side and made a try. Conversion was made (0 – 7). OC#8 was a key player and Godzilla needed to stop him.

7’ OC#15 were running strongly and made a try. Conversion was made (0-14). OC#15 was also another key player.

11’ OC made another try. (0-19)

16’ Godzilla conceded a penalty. OC made a PG (0-22).

Godzilla didn’t have a good chance for the first 20 minutes; however, finally at 23 min following big gains made by Godzilla backs, Milo made a great try following quick ball recycle from a ruck. (5-22).

Godzilla needed to turn around the game from this point. However, Godzilla gave up another try before the end of the first half. Conversion was made.

First half was ended LA Godzilla 5 – OC Gators 29.

Godzilla #5 Angel Muro played well for the first half. It was his first rugby game; however, he made good tackles and carried ball few times.





2nd half

43’ Godzilla #15 Bozho ran well by the right side touch line for 20 meters and made an excellent last pass to #8 Tim (Concrete) at 22 meter line. Tim made a try by escaping from a tackler. (10 – 29)

This was a great try to change the atmosphere of the game in favor of Godzilla.

However, it was not the case. Godzilla couldn't stop strong and consistent attacks by OC Gators thereafter. Godzilla conceded two tries right after (46‘ & 50’). A conversion was made. (10 – 41)

Godzilla attacked and defended well for the next 15 minutes. Godzilla #11 Chris Highland made good gains several times and also made a good tackle from far distance. This was also his first rugby match.

’66 Godzilla conceded another try. (10 – 46). Thereafter, Godzilla’s stamina ran out and Godzilla defense couldn't stop OC Gators. For the last 15 minutes Godzilla conceded 4 tries and 2 conversions.

The final score was LA Godzilla 10 – OC Gators 70.

Godzilla were not able to tackle down two key players of OC Gators (#8 and #15). We need to focus on our defense for the rest of the season.

2/8/2014 LA vs Rebellion

2014.02.10 Mon


Today we had a match in Burbank against LA Rebellion which is a gay friendly team derived from a gay bar (Rebellion). It was a nice day (70F/20C) with clear sky. D1/D3 teams had matches in Belmont Shore. We have very limited supports today from D3 team. We only had 5 reserves to start with.

The game was kicked off on time at 1 PM.

0 minutes: Rebellion kicked off and Junzo catched it and made a good ball out to backs.

3 minutes: Following a scram awarded by our knock-on at 22m in Godzilla territory, Rebellion’s fly half made a try easily in the center by avoiding tackles. Conversion was made (0-7).

7 minutes: Following the center scram by kick-off off-side committed by Godzilla, #11 of Rebellion made a try. Conversion was made as well (0-14). Godzilla gave away two tries and conversions too easily.

17 minutes: Chris (#14) had a pass from Bozho (#15) and ran 20 meters in front of the goal where he was tackled. Forward quickly recycled the ball and Paul (#7) made a try. Milo (#13) made a conversion from 45 degree angle (7-14).

28 minutes: Bozho (#15) ran 20 meters and made a try to the center. Milo (#13) made a conversion easily (14-14). We tied! Yeah!

38 minutes: Rebellion made a try and a conversion (14-21).
40 minutes: LA Godzilla 14 - Rebellion 21

Today Godzilla’s scrams and line-outs were excellent. Tim took many of the opponents line out. Forward supplied balls well in the racks. Backs ran well. For the 1st half it was very close game. It was pity for us that we didn’t score from 5 meter penalties twice.

We were hoping that we made another turn around in the 2nd half like last week.





2nd half
There have been no score for both sides during the first 19 minutes in the 2nd half.

Godzilla started to lose players due to injuries. Dan, Ted, Satoshi and Myu were out for injuries.

59 minutes: Rebellion made a try (14-26).

Thereafter, Godzilla’s players ran out of stamina and concentration. Rebellion made 3 tries and 2 conversions during the last 20 minutes of the 2nd half. The final score was (14-55).

Justin Rodriquez (Div 3) played much better than the last week. He made one good tackle, carried ball and recycled it a few times.

Until 60 minutes, Godzilla had a good game against Rebellion. We need to have more stamina and reserve members for the last 20 minutes of the game. We exhausted all reserves in the latter half of 2nd half. Hiro Tsukuda was not supposed to play but he went in during the last 10 minutes.





We will get revenge against Rebellion at home in April.

2/1/2014 LA vs Santa Monica

2014.02.10 Mon

Today we had a match against Santa Monica RFC's Div 4 team at our beautiful home pitch at Dodson Middle School in Palos Verdes at 12 PM. It was a warm (75 F) and beautiful sunny day. This is our second game of Div 4 league at Southern California Rugby Football Union.

Santa Monica Rugby Club is very famous and reputable club. It has Premium, Div 1 and Div 4 teams. Young guys are competing each other at their Div 4 team to move up to Div 1 and Premier teams. Therefore, all of these guys are playing hard.

During first half Godzilla spent tough time against their huge forward players particularly #3 prop (a pacific islander) weighs 300 lbs. We lost balls in scrams and line outs. Godzilla gave up 3 tries and finished the first half (0-15).

In second half, both forward and backs of Godzilla played well. Godzilla scored 4 tries. Santa Monica came back with two tries; however, Godzilla managed to win a slim victory of 28-25. Santa Monica had 5 tries with no goal. Godzilla only had 4 tries; however, Milo, our kicker, made all conversions even from one from near sideline and made a win. Bozho also blocked a conversion of Santa Moncia.

It was a great game of rugby today!









本日快晴20度のさわやかな太陽の下、LA Godzilla Division 4の第2戦目12時HomeのPalos Verdes Dodson Middle Schoolの素晴らしいピッチでKick off。対戦相手は名門Santa Monica Rugby ClubのDiv 4 team。Div 1への登竜門として、若手がしのぎを削る素晴らしいチーム。

ゴジラは前半相手の150 Kgはあるプロップや巨大フォワードにセットプレーで苦戦し、3トライを献上し、0-15と15点のビハインドで折り返す。

後半はフォワード、バックスの連携もまして、4トライを決め、Santa Monicaに2トライを返されるも、28-25で逃げ切って初勝利。トライ数は4-5で負けれいるものの、キッカーMiloが難しい角度からも全てのゴールを決めた事と、Bozhoが敵ゴールキックをブロックするなどの好プレーで勝利に貢献。最高の試合でした。
