The Denver Barbarians picked up their first win of the season as they beat previously undefeated Belmont Shore 13-6 in a shortened match. About halfway into the match Belmont Shore hooker Michael Sweet went down with a head injury. He was taken to the local hospital that revealed a concussion. However, he should be fine to play in the coming weeks once he has recovered. The delay for the injury was enough to suspend the match and according to league by-laws the result will stand.
Before the injury it was a kicking showdown between Belmont’s Andy Jackson and Denver’s Max De Achaval. Jackson was the first to get on the board just after the 20th minute mark with his first penalty. Denver would be quick to respond with Marcus Taylor scoring the match’s only try. With De Achaval’s conversion Denver led 7-3. Two more penalties from De Achaval would make it 13-3 before Jackson added his second of the match.
Next week Denver will return to Colorado to face Olympic Club while Belmont will also make the trip to the Rockies to face Glendale.
