Another weekend, another chance for the #DockShow to continue its stellar 2019 season! A matchup with the Maine Cats beckoned, as the Dockers became Maines first ever home game.
Conditions could not have been better, even if some Dockers were weighed down from copious amounts of Lobster rolls. The first quarter was a see saw affair, with the Dockers and Cats trading goals until a couple late snags from Docker veteran, Kit Drury, helped the Dockers go into the first change with a three-goal lead. The Dockers midfield was prolific as always, with Champions Data rating it the second-best midfield behind the talented Collingwood Magpies earlier in the season. Nick Tyson and Nick Sisca had a case of leather poisoning, and they more than made up for the speedy Cats midfield.
The second and third quarter were some of the Dockers’ best this season. Mike Gilbert, aka Mad Dog, aka The Enforcer, and Terence McAuliffe were stone walls in the back line, punching forward entries away with ease and making a case for All-American honors. Ryan Daudelin clinched Mark of the Year with an absolute screamer from the lace out delivery of Nick Tyson.
The fourth quarter went quickly as the Dockers continued to rain goals on the Cats defense. Valon Kaf booted 6 majors for the match, with a sublime snap from the boundary many calling the wonder goal of the season. All in all, it was another stand out performance from the Baltimore Dockers against an up-and-coming Maine Cats, eventually taking out the match by the score of 15.8.98 to 5.3.33.
The #DockShow continues its march to Nationals and the #Road2Repeat with a huge clash against the Philadelphia Hawks and the D.C. Eagles at Baltimore’s iconic Frank C. Bocek Park on August 24. Come out and cheer for Baltimore’s team!
