Ventura 21 - Back Bay 25 - 24 January 2015

Back Bay welcomed Ventura County Outlaws to Peninsula Park on Saturday, for the first home game of the 2015 season.  

The day started with the Back Bay Youth U14 team hosting Carlsbad.  Both teams were very competitive and enjoyed the opening hour of rugby before Ventura and Back Bay took to the field.

Ventura travelled with a full squad of players, looking to challenge Back Bay from the start.  Both sides fought for posession but Back Bay were first to put points on the board after 8 minutes with Sebastian Pedreira going over the line in the corner.  With a strong wind it was difficult to get kicks on target so the conversion went wide.

Back Bay 66 - Santa Barbara 7 - 17 January 2015

Back Bay travelled 140 miles from Newport Beach to open the 2015 season against Santa Barbara.  After the disappointment of having the initial game against San Luis Obispo cancelled because of some nasty weather (about 1 hour of light rain) Back Bay were keen to get off to a good start.

A full squad of eager players made the journey to Santa Barbara.  The game started but Santa Barbara only had 13 players to begin with because of injuries and late arrivals.  Back Bay didn't hold back but pressed immediately, going over the line after 2 minutes via Travis Whitlock.  The conversation was made by Mike Wendel and he followed up after 5 minutes with a penalty kick to put Back Bay ahead by 10 points.

The pressure continued throughout the first half with Back Bay taking advantage of the extra numbers with tries from Shaun Baker (2), Mike Wendel, Milton Bartley and Travis Whitlock (2nd try) again to finish the half ahead by 39 points.

Health Insurance you need

With the upcoming season looming on the horizon and preseason starting in a month, it’s time to start getting ourselves prepped and ready.  However, just by the nature of this game, there is one thing that you can’t always prep your body for- injuries.  When they do happen, it’s important to get it taken care of right away (take it from a guy who has spent the past 2 ½ years in a cast, limping or otherwise hurting).  I know medical costs can deter a lot of us from seeking out immediate medical treatment, but the importance of getting yourself checked out quickly is paramount to getting back on the field at full fighting strength.
A Hospital Indemnity Policy is an incredibly cost effective way to help reduce these costs.  This is a policy that will pay you cash for visiting a healthcare provider after getting hurt.  The monthly premium is only between $14 and $18 depending on how old you are and the payout is $250 per injury.  If you do the math, it really is a no brainer.  This is something I wish I had in place 2 years ago when I started racking up medical costs, it honestly would have been a life saver.  Click here to download a flier explaining the benefits of our HI policy.
For those of you who don’t currently have full medical, you would be crazy to play without it.  Open enrollment is starting on November 15 for 2015 and those of you that need to get your health insurance taken care of, please feel free to use me as a resource to help guide you through the process.
