Old Gaelic stepped up to the challenge of taking on D1 Playoff team the Potomac Exiles and responded in a huge way. The home team got out on the front foot immediately after Potomac failed to execute its opening kickoff and didn’t look back.
OG’s aggressive, physical tone opened up opportunities for Brady Reisman, Sergio Acala, Alex Schaefer (2) and Jase Martin to score tries as they built a 29-12 lead in the first three A-Side periods of this Inter Division friendly.
As Old Gaelic’s youth movement continued, flanker Micah Wagner and center Jayden Demmy impressed on their debuts; both were all over the field on defense, making breaks and setting up teammates on offense. Acala also represented well against Potomac’s Old Glory DC front rower en route to a Viking Hard Hat Award. Demmy took home Man of the Match, as squared up against an Old Glory’s most recent draft pick for most of the day.
OG starts its league schedule next Saturday at Montgomery Bucks before returning to Double D Ranch on September 25 for a huge match against Doylestown.
