Here are some updates:
MEN’S SIDE: Blackthorn Men’s side battled Reading this past Saturday and came out on the short end of a 32-16 score. Blackthorn’s Jabari Johnson scored a try in the second half on a beautiful 20 yard run through the Reading defenders. Robbie Vollrath was 3 for 3 on penalty kicks and also had a conversion to take home Blackthorn Man of the Match honors. The side: Brandon Walker, Blake Riddle, Brendan Petrilli, Pat Hayes, Rob Walls, Antoine Kesse, Travis Cliburn, Vince Umile, Jabari Johnson, Jerry Fillman, Cam Dutter, E Pearson, Jake Faight, Kevin Golden, Robbie Vollrath. Subs were used a lot on this hot day and included Jack Wetere, Nate Wright, Josh Hallowell, Nick McShane, John Porter.
OLD BOYS: We have an old boys match scheduled vs. Media at our MKS day, Nov. 13. Game is 11 am – 1 pm, right before men’s match. Athletic Trainer will be available. We need commitment from the Blackthorn old boys to make this happen. We already have a handful of guys – me, Rodd, Scotty Bruce, Big Jim, Jason Dorwart, Blackthorn Bob, and more who are willing and able. We need more names to round out the side. Idea is to have a couple run-arounds before the match. Please reply back and let me know your interest so we can count you in and add you to the Old Boys vs. Media list.
BARBARIANS: They’ve already started practice, so come out on Monday evenings and work with the Barbarian athletes. Northampton Rec Center fields, 345 Newtown-Richboro Road, in Richboro, PA. 6 PM start.
TOUR: Get your deposits in to tour treasurer Joe McCreavy.
ANNIVERSARY PROGRAM: We still need pictures from each decade! Please contact Rodd Whitney to submit your pictures.
SKILLS CLINIC: See the attached flyer. Donal Walsh, our director of Player Development, has organized this skills clinic to better develop our active players and recruit/develop prospective players. It happens every Sunday morning starting this weekend, 10:30 am -12:30 pm.
