First game at around 10:30 was against Oxy Old Boys. I believe they beat us last year in a close game; this year was different. We scored a lot and often. Jeremy Kemp had two tries, Alex Carlson had two tries, Grant Reynolds and Howie Chadbourne had a try, and I think Jeff Davidson bulled one over.

In any event was an excellent game and Back Bay played very well on the day.
We had the annual after match ceremony in which team awards were given. Award recipients were:
