Fog vs. Aptos - February 2

The Fog opened their NCRFU Division III 2008 men’s season against the Aptos Beach Dogs on a Saturday defined by temperatures in the high 40’s, moderate winds and light rain.

Amidst the harsh weather and muddy pitch, the Fog brought its A game among their players, coaches and supporters in what proved to be a very engaging match, resulting in a final score of Aptos 18, Fog 5.

Shortly after, the Fog B Side, who braced the elements for hours before, played in the seconds match and prevailed with a hard-fought win.

Silverhawks vs. Fog - January 26

The San Francisco Fog’s B Side squared off against the San Jose Silverhawks on Saturday, January 26, a day of 50 degree temperatures and light drizzle.

In the words of Fog Coach Ken Bousfield, “A great day for rugby was had by all yesterday. The Silverhawks a lot the Fog a few. Many thanks to the Silverhawks in braving the storms and coming out to play. There are always lessons to be learned during all games win, lose or draw. Awesome player turnout!!! Fantastic commitment from all who played to the final whistle.”
