Today is our last 60 minutes together on the pitch in Argentina. We loved playing here and it was truly a mesmerizing experience, to say the least. The boys woke up knowing that today would be truly the hardest game of the tour.
We had a late starting game. We knew we had to play for the CMA crest on our chest. It was a nice cool day, perfect for rugby. We started with a little walk around the town Mar del Plata. It is a beautiful beach town on the coast Pacific Ocean.
Next was on to the last 60 minutes of rugby in Argentina. The boys were excited and ready to play a fast paced, hard hitting game of rugby. We knew the challenges that stood before us. It was three 20 minute periods. As Junior leader and 8-man Tyler Heer puts it, “60 minutes is like 60 miles. The final 15 miles was one to remember.” It was truly an experience I don’t think anyone will forget. The final score was 32-5 the lone try scored by Tyler Heer (’18).
The score did not reflect the game the boys put forth. We fought hard throughout and stuck with each other like the band of brothers we are. We had ups and downs but we are proud we played for the logo on our chest…Culver Military Academy.
