Glasgow Tigers maul Mustangs

Published

Glasgow 58 – 0 Northumbria

GLASGOW UNIVERSITY TIGERS hosted their first home game of the season against Northumbria Mustangs in the BUAFL on Sunday 23rd January.

The Border League rivals made the journey north over Hadrian’s wall hoping for victory, but as they travelled home battered and bruised, the Mustangs could only dream of building such a defence at Garscube.

Glasgow dominated this game from the off and the scoreline demonstrates the gulf in class displayed on Sunday. At times it seemed building a wall was going to be the only way to stop the maurauding Tigers.

The stats from the game also make for interesting reading, as Glasgow continually punished a weak Mustangs team.

The Tigers offense gained a total 642 yards, including 508 rushing and 142 passing. Star performers on the offense team, who tore the Mustangs apart from every angle included Running Back Lewis King: 20 carries, 274 yards and 2 touchdowns, Running Back Winston Ojei: 8 carries, 186 yards and 1 touchdown and Running Back Jonas Baziukas: 3 carries, 8 yards and 2 touchdowns. Along with Tigers President and Wide Receiver Dave Mann:  5 catches, 110 yards and 1 touchdown.

The Tigers not only attacked at a feroucious pace but they also defended their territory with all their might.

The defence conceded only 80 yards in total with 1 Safety (worth 2 points) and 2 interceptions. The defence team stats and stars are Line backer Rob Gilmore: 9 tackles, 1 sack,  Line backer Phil Najemy: 7 tackles, 4 for loss of yards, Corner back Paddy Murphy: 6 tackles, 2 for loss of yards, 2 deflected passes and 1 interception,  Ewan Beesley had several tackels and one interception of defence as well as 3 receptions and 1 touchdown on offence along with Peter ‘Sledge’ Neil who was dominant through the middle of the D-Line all day.

Glasgow  displayed why there are league leaders and this victory will be even sweeter as they celebrate at one of their annual Superbowl Party at O’Couture this weekend.
