Jacksonville Axemen Rugby League

Axemen beat Oneida at MIT

The Axemen had the game well in hand by the half time hooter but the injuries to winger Nicholas Shea and halfback Richie Alleger were a bigger concern for the coach. Center Taylor Alley and Frenchman Jeremy Gerondal then added to the list of wounded players in the second half.

The Axemen found some good gains from their outside backs

The scoreline was 54 to 12 by the end of the game but the Axemen looked like the walking wounded and in some case the “carried” wounded. Both teams left nothing to chance on the aggression in tackles and the crowd was entertained with the number of solid tackles. But it was the set plays and skill out wide that was the difference for the Axemen with almost all their trys coming from the outside backs.

Kenny Britt and Matt Thornton had big games for the Axemen out wide and Randy Dewey filled in well at halfback after Richie Alleger left the field with a suspected ACL Tear.

There was no shortage of tough stuff in the middle of the field during the entire game

The Axemen now wait for injury updates from Dr Alex Moore at St Vincents Primary Care and scans from First Coast Imaging as they prepare for the biggest test so far when they travel to Philadelphia to take on the Philly Fight this weekend.
