Omaha traveled to the east side of Iowa to take on Clinton Muddy River Football Club. Clinton showed up to their home match with a full, tough side while Omaha were only able to bring 13 men across the state for the river city rivalry. The 15 on 13 advantage for Clinton proved to be a huge difference for the entirety of the match. Clinton began the scoring and didn’t see an answer from Omaha for most of the first half until Will Landolt dotted one down in the corner for the visitors. That would prove to be Omaha’s only score of the game, and Clinton would continue the onslaught until the final whistle with the final being 65-5 to the home side. With the cards stacked against them, the Omaha GOATS still proved to be a physically tough opponent.
For the next two weeks, the GOATS have some much needed home matches versus Des Moines and Bremer County on October 6th and 13th respectively. We hope to see many of you there for some hard hitting rugby fun in addition to our Hunger Heroes Food Drive! Be sure to bring boxed and canned goods or any other non-perishable items, as we’ll continue our food drive with the Open Door Mission to combat hunger in Omaha!
