WPL WEEK 3: ANOTHER TIGHT WIN

Following a weekend off, the All Blues hit the road again, to Glendale, CO. It was another close game as the teams battled back and forth, trading tries. Glendale struck first, scoring only two minutes into the game. This woke up the All Blues and they came back firing, scoring three quick tries, two from center Jill Whitfield and one from eight-man Liz Terry. Glendale scored again and All Blues flyhalf Ruth Bryson slotted a penalty kick late in the first half for a All Blue 24-17 lead at halftime. The second half was thrilling, as Glendale scored midway through the second half to tie the game. Both teams battled up and down the field, until with less than two minutes on the clock, All Blues wing Alyssa Baccarella crept around the Glendale defense to score! Glendale did not give up though, and marched down the field. The All Blues defense stayed strong and held up a potential try with no time left on the clock, to secure the 32-27 win!
